The Kansas City Modern Quilt Guild is very pleased to announce a special guest speaker in May: Weeks Ringle! Weeks Ringle and Bill Kerr run Modern Quilt Studio (formerly Fun Quilts). Their most recent book is called Transparency Quilts, available as of January 2012. They are also known for Quilts Made Modern, published in 2010.
Weeks and Bill create one-of-a-kind and limited edition contemporary quilts, design fabrics, write books, write for magazines and design for manufacturers. They both have graduate degrees in design and lead workshops on design for quiltmakers nationally and internationally. You can see some of the quilts on their Facebook page.
In May, Weeks will give her talk, “Quilts Made Modern.” This lecture and trunk show is based on her Quilts Made Modern book. Weeks will give an inside look at the process, explain the design thinking behind the process, and show some quilts in person.
