Well I didn't mean to put this up on this blog but you will probably enjoy the photos that belong on the guild blog.

Do plan to stay for the afternoon program Tuesday after the regular guild meeting at the Spencer Museum of Art at the KU campus.






At 1:30 on  April 15, Jean Mitchell will discuss her quilts in the gallery, talking about the themes and symbols in the pieces.

Gallery Talk Virginia Jean Cox Mitchell
1:30 – 2:30 PM / Spencer Museum of Art, Gallery 316

Beautiful quilts and it looks machine appliqu├ęd? I love the idea of doing machine applique and plan on doing art pieces that way, but I do prefer needle turn for quilts I use, always worry that they might unravel after a while?

She does hand applique and adds embroidery on top.
