Quilting Land and Water: Textile artist Leah Evans who will talk about her process and show us her work. Her quilted wall hangings consist of layers of the following techniques: appliqué, reverse appliqué, piecing, natural and synthetic dyeing, needle-felting, hand printing, and a variety of embroidery stitches. By incorporating vintage kimonos, upholstery remnants, and many other secondhand materials, the works are in keeping with the quilt tradition of recycling. Leah’s current thematic focus is the ways in which people impact their environment and, in turn, how the environment affects people. Her pieces are influenced by aerial photography, maps, and satellite imagery, but are not always based on specific places.

Mad Mod member Jini MacAdam will present “Quilted A.F.: To the design wall and back.” (A.F. stands for “absolutely fearlessly.”) Jini is passionate about artistry and approaching quilting as if it were a painting/drawing, and her enthusiasm really shows when she talks about her process!
