Betty Tudor presents trunk show

Our May meeting featured the quilts of our member Betty Tudor. Betty began her quilting career with piecing and took classes and finished all the class projects she began. When she discovered applique in about 1990, she knew she had found her passion. She showed 44 pieces and told where and when she made the pieces and if they were the outcome of a class.

Betty loves hand quilting and did most of the full-size quilts on a round wooden hoop while sitting up in her bed watching TV. She has added machine quilting to her skills, but still favors hand quilting, particularly for her exquisite applique work. Her quilts have often been prize winners at PBQ shows. She has also been in the IQA show in Houston and AQS in Paducah.

If you missed this trunk show of Betty Tudor, you missed the works of a Master Quilter indeed.
