Thanking the Lakes Region Scholarship Foundation donors for supporting her educational aspirations at Parsons The New School for Design, where she is perusing her
BFA in Fashion Design with a minor in graphic design, Dakota “Koko” Clarke (second left) presented her 2014 scholarship donors with a print she created in her first year, second semester printmaking class. Clarke said, “This was the first time I had ever etched a copper plate using acid. These types of learning experiences are what really thrill me and I have never felt so excited to devour all bits of information and learn numerous techniques in regards to art. I
am so grateful for my awards and hope to make you all
proud.” In 2013, Clarke was awarded the Chelsea R. Bowen Memorial, Gilford Education Association, Bruce & Scott Shaw Memorial, and the Annalee Thorndike Art Award. She is shown with this year’s donors, Shirley Mento (left), representing the Belknap Mill Quilters Guild Award and Mary VanderNoot (second right), LRSF trustee and representative of the Norman C.& Mary M. VanderNoot Award, and Joan Cormier (right), LRSF Executive Director. On behalf of the Quilters Guild, Mento reminded everyone to check their website: bmqg.org for more information about their 37th Annual Harvest of Quilts on October 4 and 5, 2014, which helps raise funds for their scholarship awards
This guide provides the inspiration for a year's worth of quilts and table toppers: 24 projects that are perfect for all seasons and occasions.
Pam and Nicky bring you a fresh collection of 14 brand new quilt patterns, each with a beautiful variation design. Uses a range of Moda™ pre-cuts, including the new fat eighth bundle!
Can't find the fabric you need? Create it with paint! This choice gives the quiltmaker unlimited flexibility in execution. Each of these 15 original design projects may be appliquéd, created with fabric paint, or may combine both fabric and paint techniques. Even up close, you won't be able to tell if a quilt is painted or appliquéd without touching it.
Other Books Include:
Simple Circles & Quick Curves (Machine Applique)
Stitchin’ Retro (Embroidery)
Crazy Shortcut Quilts (Crazy Quilts)
