“Quilting is a creative act of hope, and quilts are tangible love.” Life and quilting have much in common. We are shaped by our pasts, but not limited by them. When we find a creative expression, like quilting, we have the opportunity to take what we have and create something of beauty out of it. Necessity is still the mother of invention, and that is so very true in the quilting life of Margaret Willingham, the founder and creative force behind Eye of the Beholder Quilt Designs. Come hear about Margaret’s creative process while getting to know her quilts. Get a glimpse into the interplay of color, pattern, and design she uses. Gain an understanding of the techniques she employs to “trace, baste, snip & stitch“ in order to create her reverse applique patterns. Be encouraged to trust your creative instincts as you quilt, adding a touch of elegance to your life. Supplies are not required for a lecture, although you may want to bring a pen and paper to take notes.
