As a way to honor National Quilting Month, we chose to watch an episode from The Kentucky Quilt Project's Why Quilts Matter: History, Art & Politics. This is a very interesting and inspiring series that was aired on Public Television. The 2-disc set can be found in our library. This nine-part television series presents quilts as more than just a hobby. It takes the viewer on a journey and introduces new ideas and uncovers the depth of the quilt culture through history.

Debbie Barrett started out the evening with a simple explanation of how to do the “Y” seam in the LeMoyne Star for this month’s technique segment.
Sue Stanton from Sew Unique Threads Quilt Shop in Battle Creek had so much to show us using many different techniques to enhance and embellish our quilts and projects. She shared many different embroidery tips using different threads and yarns. She also explained how to paint on fabric to make our own unique blocks.
