Ami Simms' visit to Pieces and Patches Quilt Guild is less than a week away and we are so excited to have her!! Ami will be here on Monday, October 27, 2014 at Spring Arbor Free Methodist Church where we meet. Her presentation is called "Living with Quilts : A Survival Guide". The presentation begins at 7 but you'll want to get there early. Snacks are ready at 6:30 as well as a mini- demonstration on bias strip applique. Hope to see you there!

We had a delightful day with art quilter, Vikki Pignatelli. At the daytime workshop, we learned her wonderful method of piecing curves to create organic designs, which are her expertise.
The evening program was both informational, about her path to becoming an art quilter, and a visual feast with her one of a kind, nature inspired quilted wall hangings. If you missed meeting Vikki, you can check out her work at her website www.vikkipignatelli.com/ or her blog Kindling the Creativity Within http://nurturecreative.wordpress.com/
Here are some of art quilts that Vikki has made and that we had the pleasure of seeing at our guild meeting! Vikki works with many hand dyed fabrics as well as batick fabric to help her get the different tones and textures in the natural world. She does all the piecing and all the free motion quilting herself on her domestic sewing machine.
