Deb Rowden, Lawrence resident and freelance quilt editor, will share her absolute passion for IMPROVISED Quilts. Deb has collected them and studied them for years. There is nothing new or modern about improvised quilts. They have been with us as long as there have been quilts, sometimes with other labels: rogue, maverick, utilitarian or thrift shop quilts. Deb will talk about the definition of improvisation, the quilters of Gee’s Bend, Anna Williams, Lucille Young, and more and explore a few popular myths about who makes improvised quilts. We’ll examine quilts from Deb’s wacky collection, along with historic samples of improvisation. Feel free to bring along your own improvised quilts to show and tell.
