This was the description from our guild’s calendar:
May 28th Meeting – A lecture/trunk show by Linda McGibbon and Leslie Peterson
of Bay City/Midland area. These two have been friends for years, thus the name of their presentation: Friendship. But they have different tastes.
Linda likes paper piecing, machine piecing and bargello.
Leslie likes hand needle turn appliqué, wool appliqué, red work, and color tinting fabric. They will be bringing loads of quilts to show.
Their pattern company : LAKE VIEW PATTERNS BY LINDA MC GIBBONS . . .
THIS was a very enjoyable trunk show. They had over 100 quilt projects to show between them. I enjoyed how they each were cheerleaders for the other ones work. Many of the larger quilts have been entered and won prizes in various quilt shows including Puducah and Houston. The GIRLS are available for workshops, classes and trunk shows. I am going to let their quilts talk for them…. …
LESLIE PETERSON’s QUILTS:
Leslie enjoys embroidery and hand applique. The majority of her quilts are done by hand … piecing and quilting. Her kids were involved in after school activities and sports. She said many of her quilts were totally made in her car and never made it into the house until it was completed.
LESLIE said she made many of her large scale appliques by cutting the fabric out directly on the quilt. Each of her kids was given a quilt to suit their sports passions.
Linda gave Leslie some left over paper pieced MARINER COMPASS blocks from some of her projects, the problem was they were different sizes. It was up to Leslie to design a quilt using those blocks. She used her favorite applique to unite and highlight the blocks. Everyone ohhhed and ahhhed over these quilts.
This wall hanging used a pieced background to highlight the and emphasize the applique. As part of her lecture, Leslie discussed how her quilting evolve over several years.
LINDA MC GIBBON’s QUILTS:
RECENTLY, Leslie has been playing with the DRUNKARD PATH BLOCKS. She has been seeing how far she can go with adding PIZZAZ to the blocks and quilts….. I THINK SHE HAS GOT IT!
I am running away for a mini vacation with DH… so I will get back with you later with more pictures.
