She does her own machine quilting on her domestic sewing machine. This Double Wedding Ring was done in sections on her domestic machine.
In addition to quilting, Andrea also has a love for embroidery and embellishments. She took part in one of our workshops a few years ago doing “Manipulated Landscapes”. This was her result.
She takes part in all kinds of workshops and learning experiences and has branched out from doing traditional quilts into much more art and expressive quilts, although she believes all quilts are art and all quilters are artists. She is using some very innovative techniques, including using photographs, shrunk down very small, to make the bricks in this building. It was a fascinating trunk show. She says she is developing some teaching workshops of her own and they would be wonderful to take.
After Andrea’s presentation, we had member show and tell. Micki A. showed a wonderful scrap quilt, made in her attempt to use up her 2 1/2 inch scraps.
Maureen H. showed her project that she made last year. There was a block pattern released every single day of the year. Some of them are 3 inch blocks with the teeny tiniest of pieces.
Linda W. showed us a bag she made using what sounded like a very interesting process. Might be a good idea for a workshop......
Tiny C. showed us some quilts she made from a book called “Quilted Symphony”.
Toni showed a quilt made from the Legend of Zelda. To see more photos of Andrea’s trunk show and also from the show and tell, go here
