Since we last focused on our Special Interest Groups in 2019, the Traditional Special Interest Group have come a long way. Here to tell you more about the group is coordinator, Tanja Burlison.
The Quilters’ Guild are teaming up with Bernina to invite quilters around the UK to join us in the creation of a special Covid Commemorative Quilt.
On the whole, quilters are a social bunch. The sharing of knowledge and projects has been integral to our way of life for centuries.
I have been making quilts for the last 30 years and have explored most patterns and techniques in that time. In the first decade of this century I lost my interest in quilt making and it was the emergence of Modern Quilting that drew me back to it.
Get to know The Guild by meeting our talented members! We have interesting and inspiring members all over the country doing amazing sewing and we want you to be able to share their work.
The definition of a modern quilt definitely causes confusion. How does it differ from a contemporary or art quilt?
“Am I even a quilter if I don’t enjoy the quilting?”
I remember asking myself this question a few months into my exploration of my latest hobby. I’d spent many weeks creating a king-sized Christmas quilt with my mother. It was full of appliquéd shapes and embroidered details and, as it was only the second quilt I’d ever made, I was immensely proud of it.
