Kathy Brown speaker at June meeting

Kathy Brown from Baton Rouge was our speaker at the June 20 meeting. 
Kathy is an accomplished quilter, fabric designer with Red Rooster Fabrics, and sought after teacher in the quilt industry. In conjunction with her pattern company ‘The Teacher’s Pet’, Kathy has self-published over 200 patterns and 7 booklets as well as having books published by Martingale and The House of White Birches. She has been a featured contributor in numerous magazines. Her patterns are geared toward both the experienced and beginning quilter and are designs that may look intricate but are very simple to construct (“Take 5” and “Take 5--Quilts From Just 5 Fabrics” and “Strip–Smart Quilts”).

Kathy showed her Creative Grids Ninety Degree Double Strip Ruler and  Fat Quarter Cutter Ruler, which make quick work of the many ideas and patterns contained in her books.
Our members are still faithfully sewing and stuffing pillows for Forrest General and Wesley Medical Center.  Another 50 pillows were brought in at the June meeting.
We are looking forward to our art quilt workshop next week with Gail Bachorik and to hosting the Mississippi Quilt Association educational seminar with Marilyn Doheny on July23-24 in Hattiesburg.

Of course, plans are in full swing for our October 5-6-7 14th biennial fiber art and quilt show at Lake Terrace Convention Center. See our website for registration and entry information:
