NEXT MEETING – August 26, 2014

PROGRAM: Frieda Anderson

Frieda Anderson will talk about “Fun, Fast, Fusing”.  She will walk you through the process of making two of her fused quilts as well as showing you how her work has evolved and where her inspiration comes from.  Frieda will bring many of her quilts for display as well as her patterns and fabrics for sale.

Frieda is an award winning quilt artist. She is a faculty member of the Chicago School of Fusing. Fusing is a fun and fast way to make beautiful art quilts to hang in your home or give to your special friends. Her patterns and quilts have been featured in many international magazines and she has published several books, including “Fun Fast Fusies – Love to Quilt” and  “Fabric to Dye For”.

There will also be a workshop given by Frieda Anderson the following day, Wednesday, Aug 27.  See this post for more information about the workshop.
