We hope you can join us for our March meeting at the Antioch Township Center. Doors open at 6:30PM. Meeting starts at 7:00PM. Mary Alice Hart will give a lecture and trunk show titled Photo to Fabric.
In the quilt world her work would be classified as machine applique. It is based on photos that she manipulates in the computer to create a master pattern and pattern templates. Most of the pieces are cut with seam allowances that are turned under and the pieces are assembled like a jigsaw puzzle. When the piece meets her approval the sewing/quilting begins.
“Mother Nature is the artist in her work” she says. “She created the form and chose the colors. I am the interpreter. I honor her by trying to be as true as possible to the original photo.”
