It’s “Appliqué In April” featuring Darlene Donohue
The Palmetto Quilt Guild is thrilled to feature a lecture and workshop by one of our accomplished guild members; Darlene Donohue. Darlene’s appliqué quilts have won awards at the National Quilt Association Show in Columbus, Ohio; American Quilt Association show in Paducah, KY; and have been juried into the International Quilt Show in Houston Texas. Her quilts also have been published in book, magazines, and exhibited at the Texas Quilt Museum.
Darlene has been a part-time resident of Hilton Head for the past six years. When she is not here, she is busy teaching “Bachelor of Fine Arts” students at the Parsons School of Design in New York, NY.
When Darlene is not teaching, quilting, or weaving Nantucket baskets, she is spending time with her 7 grandchildren in Connecticut, but she always loves being on Hilton Head Island (her happy place)!
At our April 20th Membership meeting, Darlene will lecture on the “Tips and Tricks for Creating Award Winning Quilts”.
Guests are welcome. There is a $5.00 Guest Fee.
