This lecture and trunk show covers my journey in making portrait quilts in three different styles. I discuss the inspiration for each series; some of the tools I use, how I assemble the quilts and quilting approaches. There will be lots of time for questions and answers. In addition to the lecture (slides), I also show some of my quilts ‘in person’ on my design wall and table.
