Speaker: Linda Ballard “Discover the Possibilities”
March 14 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm PDT
This lecture will give you ideas on how to look at a quilt and “Discover the Possibilities” to make it come true. When we look at a quilt, how often have we wondered how did they do that? What are the components to this quilt? How could I piece what I see? Or, do I have to piece this quilt the way my eyes view it for the first time? Linda’s answers will hopefully help you unlock the mysteries of some of the patterns you see.
Being an avid seamstress all her life, Linda has taken her skills from dressmaking to creating wonderful traditional quilts using today’s faster techniques and tools. She lives in northern CA outside Redding in a country community called Palo Cedro, where she raised her 2 children and still resides with husband Dave. Linda was a quilt shop owner in Redding and now travels throughout the country teaching both on land and sea. She has a fondness for quilt shops, but loves to teach at Quilt Festival, conferences, cruises, quilt guilds and camps.
Linda has been featured in a variety of quilting magazines with her quilts, her patterns and as ‘ad’ quilts for a specific line of fabrics. She’s also had the privilege of being on Simply Quilts for two different seasons which means plenty of reruns. She always finishes with one simple word …. ENJOY! That’s how it should be for all quilters.
