Cathy Geier

 

Lecture and Trunk Show: “Landscapes from Alaska to Wisconsin”

Thursday night, October 19, 2017.

Cathy Geier weaves stories and a humorous look at her life as a quilter.  She uses a power point presentation to illustrate tips and tricks for designing landscape quilts and drafting patterns on graph paper.  She also shows her source of inspiration for her work and quilting adventures from Alaska to Wisconsin.  Her technique of using tear away foundation to piece quilts introduces quilters to a fast method of quilt top construction.
