Always Quilting, Always Learning
When longtime guild member Letitia Chung presents her quilting life in a trunk show, you’ll see the truth of this talk’s title, “Always Quilting, Always Learning.” Tish is both a prolific quilter and an inveterate student: so far this year alone she’s taken classes with Jean Wells, Patty Hawkins, and Ursula Kern. And she’s either finished or close to finishing the quilts she began with those teachers. Is she traditional? Is she modern? Yes! her quilt, Whimsical Logs*, got a coveted spot in the fiercely competitive Modern Quilt Guild’s QuiltCon 2016 . . . and won first prize in their Modern Traditionalism category.

The Journey of a Quilter
“I will describe my joyful first quilt at age 60 to my quilts made at age 80+. I will show lots of work from then until now in a program intended to encourage all ages to quilt.”

My Quilting Story
With a trunk show of my quilts, this lecture covers how the last ten years have taken me from no sewing background to becoming a full-time quilting designer, teacher, and author. I’ll share insights into publishing, being a man in the quilting world, and my interests in appliqué and mid-century modern design, along with some of the directions my work is taking now and in the future.

There’s a Computer in My Studio!
Come along on a virtual tour of the Pixeladies’ studio computer (yep, the computer, not the studio) as we explain how we use technology to enhance our art and sewing projects. We’ll have some fun little breaks during this presentation and show some quilts live!

Judge’s Choice: How your quilt is judged
Here’s the scoop from one of the judges at our upcoming quilt show! Using her quilts as examples, Jan will take us through the judging process step by step. We’ll see what judges are looking for and how they evaluate quilts. Jan hopes that by the end of the program, her audience will gain some insight into making quilts that stand out from all the others and that we’ll go away a winner!
