This month we spotlighted EBHQ member Lois Helmbold. Lois has made herself a birthday quilt in 12x12 inch format for the last eight years. When she reaches 80 in a few years she will have 12 squares to make into a quilt. Lois also showcased quilts she has exhibited and works in progress. See how Lois celebrates her life through quilting. Note: Added a slide identifying Bisa Butler's work, which some people thought was mine, even though I credited her verbally. I've attached an updated version of the slide show with the additional slide inserted, # 15.

Elements of Design—Balance - March 10, 2022
EBHQ member Fredda Cassidy demonstrates how combining a variety of elements can be used to achieve a BALANCED composition. Whether working on a design wall, the floor, with your own or a purchased pattern, choice of placement, hue, and value influence the end result. Decisions about PROPORTION, CONTRAST, EMPHASIS, VARIETY, REPETITION, RHYTHM, MOVEMENT, TEXTURE, and POSITIVE and NEGATIVE SPACE effect the aesthetics of your piece and how it is perceived.
