PROMOTING THE ART OF QUILTING IN THE SOUTH CAROLINA LOWCOUNTRY
Program: "Candace Hassen Trunk Show"
I have 20 large quilts to show. Most are bed sized. I share how I got the idea to make each one; along with the strategies I use throughout my process to stay organized, get things finished and have fun doing it. I share why I made the design decisions that I made. I hope to help you see the world around you with fresh eyes, and get inspired by so much more than just other quilts. I love hearing from those who have seen my program: that I inspired them and made them feel like they could do it!
Speaker: Candace Hassen
Working with color relationships is my favorite thing. I enjoy studying motifs from other cultures to get ideas for my work. I get many design ideas from nature, paintings and other artistic mediums as well as vintage quilts and other textiles. I prefer making quilts that contain many fabrics; because I believe that this gives the viewer a much more interesting and pleasing quilt to look at. It also makes the quilt much more versatile; and will help to add a beautiful focal point or unique accent piece to a wider variety of rooms.
I have a bachelor's degree in art and have been weaving for 35 years; both of which I believe have had a big influence in the way I use color and pattern in my quilt designs. My quilts have been published in McCall's quilting magazine and have won numerous awards in local quilt shows and fairs. I have self-published patterns for many of my quilts.
