Quilters Gather Details

February's Presentations:

Gestalt Theory—A Further Exploration into the Elements of Design with Fredda Cassidy

In this session we further explore how the human brain fills in blanks in an image to create a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts. Fredda will show how to identify and use several elements of design to fool the viewer into seeing patterns and images that aren’t there as in this famous image created by Danish psychologist Edgar Rubin.

APPLIQUICK, new tools and a new method of applique – Demonstration by Ellen Switkes

In this presentation, Ellen will briefly discuss various methods of applique, and then illustrate a fairly new method of turn under applique, the APPLIQUICK application technique created by Rosa Rojas. Rosa has created new tools to allow for precise cutting, handling and preparing individual pieces for applique.  Her technique facilitates use of complicated and very small pieces.

Roll The Dice!  - Vanina Doce-Mood: Roll the dice is a FUN way of creating. Each month, we will explore new design possibilities with elements of art, colors, and even feelings! while leaving everything to chance. Much more info here.
