February 2018: Lorna Shapiro Trunk Show
She said a range of values is what makes a quilt, and the most important thing is to recognize subconsciously what it is you like. At quilt shows, she will walk by 95% of the quilts because they don’t move her, and spend a lot of time looking at the 5% that do. You’ll never design quilts you’re happy with until you learn what your 5% is, and what matters is that you are happy with your quilt!
In addition to showing many quilts, Lorna passed several of them around the room so we could feel them – a treat, as many of her quilts are made of kimono silk with silk batting, so they are soft, lightweight, breathable but warm, and fit into regular washing machines.
Thank you, Lorna!
