Our guild is fortunate to have these appliqué masters in our midst. Both women joined the guild in approximately 2013. Jeanette has always been an artist – sculpting, painting, working in porcelain. It was only about seven years ago when Jeanette saw an intricately appliqued quilt and became obsessed with the idea of making one herself. Since that time she has entered her spectacular quilts in three QuiltFests and won “Best of Show” twice and an applique blue ribbon. Martha met Jeanette sewing at church in Clanton, saw her gorgeous work, and became determined to master the intricate art herself. With Jeanette’s mentorship, Martha has put in the work and is a master in her own right.
After seeing Jeanette’s award-winning quilts and Martha’s pieces, you will immediately ask, “How do they do that?” This talented duo is ready to share their process, tips, and secrets with us. Come and learn about Prepared Needle Turn Applique. You will leave amazed and inspired…ready to try it yourself!
This meeting will focus on all things appliqué. Show & Tell will include only appliqué quilts. Three or four methods of appliqué will be demonstrated by guild members Jeannette Glasscock, Martha Gothard, Serene Johnson, and Kit Hodge
