We will hold a Guild sew-a-long using the pattern Sanibel by Gina Martin which can be found at the link . Select your fabrics before we begin. A great way to use those fun summer fabrics in your stash. Think yellow polka dot bikini.

Cindy will be doing a 3 swimsuits wall hanging, but the pattern has 9. Make it with 1,, 3, 6 or whatever works for you. If you choose to start cutting ahead of time, Cindy suggests you increase the size of the half rectangle blocks to 3" X 6" instead of the 2 5/8" X 5 1/4". We will trim down to the 2 1/2" X 4 1/2" after sewing. Cindy will be logged onto Zoom about 9:30 on June 18th if you have any questions before we begin at 10:00 AM.

Please contact Cindy Strickland at Cindy's Email or (843) 295-7451 if you would like to attend.

    Program: "Quilting with Vintage Linens" - a Narrated PowerPoint Presentation

    Speaker: Rhonda Dort 

    As a 3rd generation quilter, I like to create! I enjoy the process of embellishing vintage embroidered pieces, longarm quilting, hand dying felted wool, needlework, ink dyes and occasionally crocheting and knitting. I enjoy searching through antique shops, flea markets and junk stores looking for vintage trims, buttons, needlework and linens.

    I've been a featured artist in On Track Magazine, Inspirations Magazine-Facebook, Embroiders' Guild of Victoria (Canada) Facebook, Hexie Love Magazine and with artist Cindy Needham in the Special Exhibit For the Love of Linens at the International Quilt Festival (IQF) in Houston 2016 where additionally my hexagon piece Second Chances won 3rd Place in the Embellished Category, was on display at the Texas Quilt Museum, toured with Quilts Inc. and, on loan to the New England Quilt Museum, displayed mid Sept. through Dec. 31, 2017 as part of the Special Exhibit titled: Gilding the Lily. My vintage crochet flower piece titled Baskets of Flowers was accepted by the IQA as a juried piece at the 2017 Houston IQF. This piece was also a featured work on Alex Anderson's The Quilt Show blog page. My quilt titled My Garden took 1st Place, Best of Division and Best of Show at the Houston Livestock and Rodeo in 2017 as did My Vintage Linens Quilt in 2018. Most recently my Vintage Handkerchiefs quilt took a 3rd Place ribbon at the MMQX (Machine Quilters Showcase) New England in the New Traditions in Textiles category and Pink and Green Linens Quilt took the 3rd Place ribbon in the Springfield MQX, 2018. I was featured in Inspirations All Stitched Up Newsletter #169 published on 12/21/2018, 3 of my pieces were displayed.

    It's official, I'm now a retired quilting teacher/speaker but. . .  you can still find me twice a year at the 1914 Boehm House retreat venue in Moulton, TX. Check it out, what a wonderful place to hold my Quilt With Vintage Linens 4-day retreat!
