The Burlington Branch will be hosting Deb Divine on December 8th at 12:30 for a Lunch & Learn. She will be discussing Sharing Patterns, Sharing Lives: KS Quilt Workshop.
In the early 20th century, Emporia was home to a group of innovative quilters that included Rose Kretsinger, Charlotte Whitehill, and Hannah Haynes Headlee. Today their quilts are housed in art museums and revered internationally.
Learn about Kansas quilts from this time period and the unique collaborations that sparked “the Emporia, Kansas phenomenon” and some of the finest quilts of the 20th century.
Following a brief lecture and discussion, participants will make a Kretsinter-inspired quilt square of their own.
Participants for the workshop portion should bring the following: thimble, needles, thread, scissors, straight pins, and 10.5 inch square background fabric and 2-4 inch square blocks for the applique.
