February - Jan Martin, “Designing Quilts”
Jan Martin enlightened us with a power point presentation on designing quilts. She brought some of her amazing quilts to show us. This quilt, she is standing in front of, is her "presidents quilt". Jan was our guild president in 1996-1997.
Jan is also known for her talent of discharge dyeing. Discharging is the process of removing dye from fabric with various household detergents containing bleaching chemicals. Patterns or designs appear through stamping, stenciling or block printing. This quilt is an example using a wall paper stencil.
Some of our show and tell.
