November programming at the guild can best be summed up as the month that Kathy Wylie (kathykwylie.com ) came to town: That is because she was the guest speaker at both the day & evening meetings this month (!), on November 6 and 7.
Kathy has won numerous international awards in excellence including her most recent Best of Show in Paducah 2018. Kathy’s slide presentation and trunk show “Beauty Is All Around Us” featured Kathy’s quilts which are circular or radiating in nature. Her signature paper-cut applique quilts were examined. Kathy’s expertise in applique was breathtaking and her eagerness and ease in mentoring others to develop their own quilting expertise, made it a pleasure to learn from her.
In addition to Kathy’s work, we were treated to some fine quilt displays by our own members during Show & Tell at both meetings. Here are just a few samples of the ‘eye candy’ on display:
