June Program:
Bed Turnings

Three members will bring quilts to share, give a history of the process and inspiration on the creation process.

Karletta Pruszynski

I became interested in quilting once my daughter outgrew the love for the dresses I made her. Since I was a high school geometry teacher for many years it seemed like a

natural progression. My geometry background is the basis for my "pickiness" about symmetry in my quilts.

I consider myself a traditional quilter with a love for complex geometrical designs blending a wide range of fabric colors.

 

I like quilt designs using period fabrics (Civil War quilts, historical reproduction quilts, etc.). I enjoy learning new techniques by subscribing to “Block of the Month” quilts. Some of my favorite quilt types include:

  • Log Cabin Quilts

  • Medallion Quilts

  • Paper Piecing Quilts

  • Wall Hanging Quilts

Most of my quilts are given as gifts to family and friends on the occasion of significant life events (weddings, anniversaries, births, graduations, awards, etc.).

My quilting style has been this and that, but when Kathleen asked me to use my "block swap" quilts for the bed turning, I realized I have accumulated a few. I love color and variety in fabrics and find I become bored with making the same block over and over again; so controlled scrappy and swaps make me happy! I mostly give away or donate quilts, but have saved many of the swap quilts. After I finish a swap, I swear I will never do another one and jump right in when a friend suggests something I like!!

My 4-6 quilts will include quilts made from block swaps as well as two of my "round robin" quilts, another fun way to share our love of quilting among friends.

Carolyn Miller

I’ll be bring some quilts ranging from 1840-1940 and point out the progression of each time frame.
