Our upcoming meeting on October 12, 2021, will feature our own Becky McDaniel presenting "My Appliqué Journey."

Becky says, "I have always loved quilts! When I was a little girl, I loved to pick out the squares and triangles in the quilts my great grandmother made and was amazed that she was able to figure out how to put all the shapes together so beautifully. I wonder if she ever thought about who would be enjoying her many quilts long after she was gone…. I took my first quilting class to make a sampler quilt in 1975 when I was 15. I didn't really do much quilting until I was married and wanted to decorate my house. When I set out to do a quilting project, I would find a pattern, buy the exact amount of fabric and then go to work. On one of these shopping trips to my local quilt shop, I overheard talk about a quilt show going on that day. I got the information and went to check it out. I was floored that there were that many women in the area who were interested in quilting too! I got the nerve up to go to a guild meeting, I felt that I had finally found my people! This was in 1999. Since then, my skill level and understanding of quilts has really taken off!"

We look forward to hearing all about Becky's journey and to her workshop the following day on machine appliqué with the "Orange Peel Pillow."
