         Supply List (PDF)

Diane Steele writes: I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area and have lived in Davis for 13 years. I’ve been fairly obsessed with quilting for 19 years and have the UFOs to prove it! I love all aspects of quilting but my favorite is working with my quilting buddies on group projects.

As an active member of two quilt guilds and three smaller quilting groups, I’ve been involved in numerous group projects over many years. With my presentation Group Quilts: Block Exchanges, Round Robins and Challenges, I share my experiences of participating in those group projects. I’ll bring about 3 dozen quilts to share with you, examples from group projects I’ve been part of, showing different, interesting interpretations each quilter came up with. Everyone in attendance will receive a hand-out with many ideas to pursue with a group of their own, whether it’s five quilting buddies, or a whole guild-full of quilters.

Visual Textures is a power point lecture which shows examples of adding both actual texture and visual texture to quilts, both traditional and contemporary in design.She will discuss how textured fabric, and fabric that has been wrinkled, pleated, ruched, etc., adds both interest, and can suggest movement. In addition, she uses many fabrics, ribbons, beads, embroidery and inking to bring her work to life.
