Up for the Challenge – Fons & Porter Editors
with Diane Tomlinson

Thursday at 10:30
The Editors at Fons & Porter like variety in their quilting patterns, color selection and fabric collections. While they like a good quick quilt with instant gratification, there are some who dare to explore a bit more complex quilts and love to be challenged, like some of these quilts featuring Fons & Porter template sets. No matter what the quilt, it’s always fun to see the end result and how the design and fabric goes together. It’s even better when readers like them and want to make one for themselves!  fonsandporter.com



Dare to Dance: An Artist’s Interpretation of Joy with Mary Kerr
Saturday at 10:30
Mary Kerr is proud to present a collection of 32 art quilts that reflect individual expressions of dance and joy. Artists were challenged to create an 18” x 30” inch quilt that reflected the theme, “Dare to Dance: An Artist’s Interpretation of Joy.” Each created their own personal version that told their own unique story. Some quilters found joy in those happy memories with family. Some expressed their joy in overcoming steep obstacles. Others created a quilt to express support for social causes. Still others simply wanted to share the joy they feel when dancing. Each has a story to tell. The quilts in this exhibit, plus more, are included in Mary’s book, Dare to Dance Art Quilts (Schiffer 2014).  marywkerr.com
