Jan General Meeting – “Taking Couching into the Bedroom” with Lauren Calaby
January 3 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
This lecture challenges quilters to think about using couching on traditional bed and lap quilts, not just on art quilts! With lots of examples, I will show how I enhanced and even ‘fixed’ a variety of quilts by using couching. I’ll talk about how to consider using couching throughout the design process in finishing a quilt. I’ll discuss a variety of yarns and how/where/when I use them, and will show quilts couched with both walking foot and free motion techniques. Using couching on bed and lap quilts is less common than with art quilts so this lecture will inspire you to think about how you can use couching as a key part of your traditional quilt design, quilting, and even your bindings. In person lectures will include a trunk show with the power point presentation.
