Recent Burke QU Speakers and Events

26 Feb 2020 – Burke QU had a Great presentation by Cindy Grisdela.  Her presentation was on “Anatomy of an Improv Quilt” and it opened a number of our eyes to how we can expand our abilities.  Her comment on how when we do Improv that we get to make and break all rules on how things go together or colors we choose to use.  Thank you Cindy for a very delightful evening.

23 Oct – Burke QU had a Great opportuntity to have Geraldine Wilkins of Fredricksburg, VA as our guest presenter.  Geraldine’s presentation, “From Back Stage to Main Stage – Drama and surface design with rulers”, was an awe inspiring presentation.  Her talents with free motion quilting and rulers amazed us all.  There was much interest after her presentation on how we could attend one of her classes.  Thank You Geraldine for a lovely presentation and a fun evening.  If you would like to take a look at her Web page click HERE.

16 – 20 Oct Burke QU had their annual Fall Retreat.  A great time was had by all and many great looking Quilts were designed on the design walls with lots of Oooh’s and Aaaw’s for the great designs and all of the hard work that went into them.  Thank you “Harvest Hoe Down” Committee for all of the hard work in setup and tear down.  The event was Loved by all and it was great to just get away for a little while and Focus on Fun things in our Lives.  Thank You.
