“Quilts to a Tee: Using T-Shirts and Unique Clothing in Quilts”
This one-hour lecture for guilds and groups is designed to provide inspiration and guidance for quilters who are thinking about tackling a T-shirt or memory quilt. Quilt samples and photos are used to show how quilters can expand the possibilities of the conventional T-shirt quilt to include anything that can be washed, sewn and made to lie flat. Using interesting items is a focal point of the lecture. In addition, the design and construction of a variable layout quilt is discussed as well as the use of partial seams in construction of unique quilt designs.

“25 Years of Tips and Tricks”
Having been a quilter for more than 25 years, and spending a lot of that time in Guild meetings and workshops across two continents, I have picked up a host of tips and tricks for making patchwork and quilting easier, faster or simply better. I’d love to share these with you.

Presentation of Annual Guild Challenge
Meg Cox joins us virtually from Plainsboro NJ.
“400 years of Quilts: Behind the Scenes at the Greatest Quilt
Museum in the World”
Let Meg Cox, who serves on the board of advisors for the International Quilt Museum in Lincoln, Nebraska, open the vaults and reveal the treasures of this astounding place. Her PowerPoint lecture will show you masterpiece quilts, introduce you to curators and break down the steps in mounting an exhibition. IQM boasts a broad and unique collection of American quilts, including the red and white quilts that dazzled the quilt world when hung in Manhattan’s Park Avenue Armory in 2011. But it has also collected quilts from more than 55 countries. Meg created this presentation to benefit the museum she loves, so she charges less than normal for this talk and donates every penny to the IQM. To make it even more fun, the museum will donate a fun door prize from its museum store to your guild.
