Discussion on Wholecloth Quilts at the Horry County Museum
The Horry County Museum will host a free program by quilter Kathleen Stuart on Wholecloth Quilts. When it comes to “traditional” quilts, Kathy prefers to make wholecloth quilts using the traditional medallion style. However, she likes to use luxe fabrics such as silk dupioni or sateen and often incorporates machine embroidery. Kathy also likes to use fabric paints and Swarovski crystals on her wholecloth quilts. Originally from Regina, Saskatchewan, Kathy now lives in North Carolina so that she can enjoy the warmer weather. She has been interested in every aspect of fiber since the age of four, having tried almost every technique including knitting, crochet, needlepoint, tatting, macramé and quilting, although she didn’t begin to quilt until 2001. Her discussion at the museum starts at 10 a.m. March 10th.
