Cover to Cover Book Club Quilters
Quilt is The Widows Waltz by Linda Reinert inspired by Gone With The Wind.
Cover to Cover Book Club Quilters is a book club for quilters organized in the Portland, Oregon area. In an effort to make more interesting quilts and be motivated to get them finished, this unique group of artists decided to challenge itself to make artwork inspired by literature. All members read the same book and each member then creates a quilt using the book as inspiration.
We will be treated to a trunk show interpreting 8 to 10 books with several of the Cover to Cover Book Club Quilters members presenting.
Coming in April, Aka Shimozato with a presentation about Sashiko, a traditional Japanese stitchery, and the Japanese indygo dye process.
