Internationally recognized teacher, prizewinning quilter, author and quilt/pattern designer Cynthia England will present an entertaining slide presentation showing the process of making pictorial quilts using her "Picture Piecing" technique. Enlarging the design, fabric selection, and organizational methods will be discussed in detail.
Cynthia England is a native Houstonian and graduate of the Art Institute of Houston and has been creating quilts for more than forty years. Experimentation with quilting techniques led her to develop her own unique style and technique called, "Picture Piecing". Cynthia’s quilts have been honored with many awards, including three Best of Shows at the prestigious International Quilt Association, as well as Viewer's Choice at the American Quilter’s Society. Her quilt, Piece and Quiet was distinguished as one of the Hundred Best Quilts of the 20th Century.

Join us for an inspiring and entertaining time as award-winning quilter and AQG member Linda Cantrell describes her quilting journey in her own inimitable way.
Author, pattern designer, and AQG member Ann Holmes began her artistic journey working in stained glass, then added quilting to her portfolio. Wanting to recreate some of her original glass designs in cloth, she developed her "No Sewing Until You Quilt It" technique, which allows the quilt maker to build a quilt top using see-through fusible foundation over an outline of the design, then to stitch and quilt it at the same time.
Working in both cloth and glass – Double Happy!
