    Zoom - Modern Quilts from my Grandmothers

                    

    This lecture is part quilt history and family history and part modern quilt inspiration. I will tell the story of four of my quilting foremothers who came before me, inspired their own generations and continue to inspire my modern quilt making.

    • Jane Arthur Bond was a slave born in 1828 in Kentucky. She traveled as a wedding gift when the daughter of the family was married to Preston Bond in 1849. Jane had at least two children by Preston Bond, one of whom was my great grandfather Henry, born in 1865. Jane made quilts, some of which are featured in “Stitched from the Soul”.

    • Louvinia Clarkson Cleckley was born in 1858 in South Carolina. She was my great grandmother. She made many quilts, some of which I have. She used solids and created sharp, graphic designs, some very traditional, some less so.

    • Anna Gibson Bond was born in 1869. She was my great grandmother. She met my great grandfather Henry at Berea College. They married, and she had ten children in 18 years. She taught school, raised children and quilted. Some of her quilts were quite modern and ahead of their time.

    • Ruth Clement Bond was my great aunt. She did not quilt herself but designed quilts. One of her quilts was named one of the 100 Best Quilts of the 20th Century.

    • I’ll talk about these quilters and how their work has influenced mine.

    Free - Lone Robin - Progressive Quilt Challenge

    (Each month a new element will be emailed to all participants on the dates to your left.)

        

    Julia McLeod of Silk & Salvage has invented a new quilting game she calls the Lone Robin! It’s part progressive quilt, part mystery quilt, and will be a whole lot of fun when we compare quilts at the end of it! 

    Participants will do this for six months: Each month we’ll complete a stage of our quilt, following that month’s instructions from Julia.  You will get new instructions monthly starting in June through November and catch up in December.       

    We will reveal our finished tops in January, date to be announced. As added incentive, every quilter who shows their finished quilt top in January will be entered in a raffle, which offers a chance to win one of four $25 gift certificates from one of our Member Affiliates.    

    See the Lone Robin web page for this month's element.

    Remember when we used to meet in person at the Albany church twice a month for quilting, socializing,  and lunching?


    "Those were the days my friend, we thought they’d never end.” Unfortunately, those days are now temporarily on hold. 


    However, since we’ve become Zoomer quilters, there’s been interest in arranging virtual get-togethers to fill the void and keep us connected.  Bring your coffee or tea, your hand sewing, stories to share. Let’s meet virtually and see how it goes!


    If you want to sign up, but it’s already full, or you can’t do it on that day, or you might want to do it in the future,  please join the waiting list.


    The door to the Quilters Clubhouse is now open!

    Virtual Show & Tell - Locked Down and Breaking Out

    I'm guessing no one in the guild (or anywhere else) has ever experienced anything like the sweep of the pandemic. We could have curled up in a tiny ball and cried - and maybe some of us did - but then we all got going. Our guild sewed over 3,200 face masks for health care and emergency services providers. We've not slowed down at all on the Deanna Davis Community Quilt Project. We've supported our local quilting stores as they went entirely online. I'm guessing that many of us looked on our quilting as a lifeline, something to keep us grounded during these unprecedented times. Well, let's see 'em, guys and gals. It's time to share projects you've completed since November 2019. Big or small...pandemic-inspired or pure escapism...let's join to celebrate the unquenchable creative process we all love so much.

    Sincerely,


    Jean Smith

    Century of Women’s Progress, 1920 – 2020

    presented by Jennie Alexich


    Voices in Cloth 2020 celebrates the centennial anniversary of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution with a special exhibit of story quilts highlighting progress toward equality since women obtained the vote in 1920.


    While acknowledging the reality that full equality for all women and girls remains an ideal and hard-won rights can erode or disappear without vigilance, this 100-year period includes important milestones, achievements, and changes improving our quality of life. The twenty-five original pieces in this exhibit illustrate some of the people, movements, ideas and events of the past century of women’s history in the United States.


    To stage this exhibit an open, nationwide challenge was issued seeking small quilts displaying a range of traditional and innovative techniques, accompanied by narratives providing additional information about the subject of the quilt. Entrants were encouraged to convey personal connections to the topic and its relevance to others. The entries were juried by a panel of three art and fiber experts, Inez Brooks-Myers, Patricia Guthrie and Rosa Valdez, supported by historian Melinda McCrary.


    Meet here for a Gallery Walk on Monday, December 28th at 6:30 PM. You can also find our online exhibit through February of 2022 at:  Century of Women's Progress
