Workshop News!

May's Speaker, Lauretta Crites

Lauretta gave an inspiring lecture entitled "Create! 7 Keys to Unlocking Your Creative Power" at both the Santa Maria Valley Quilt Guild and the All America City Quilt Guild's monthly meetings. Many enjoyed Lauretta's workshop the following day painting Tyvek leaves to make their own wall hanging like the one to the left. The workshop was very instructional and ever so much fun! Thank you Lauretta for showing us your magical techniques!

Below are some photos of Lauretta's  work.

Barn Quilts

John Lettau taught a series of painting barn quilts on wood blocks. Several members attended and painted their own blocks. Thank you John, we look forward to more workshops!

May Show & Tell

Guild members create beautiful quilts. This unique one was made by Barbara Williams. Check our monthly newsletter for images of more lovely quilts.

Graduation Quilt

This pattern, Chopstix, was a class taught by Bobbie Jones. The quilt name is Starlight/Starbright and is a graduation gift for Bobbi Gilman's granddaughter, Lexi. 

Charity Quilt

One of several comfort quilts donated to CASA, this one by Daryleen Noble.

A Work of Art

This beauty was crafted by guild member, Sue Mandler. The embroidered blocks were made many years ago and Sue turned them into an artistic quilt.
