This Is A Test
Award-winning Hand Quilter To Present July Program
Tim Lattimer, an award-winning hand quilter, will present his lecture/trunk show "Time Span Quilts: UFO to Heirloom" at the July 10 MVQG meeting. The presentation consists of a power point presentation showing the stages of work on various antique tops from start to finish, including repairs as needed, washing, batting, hand quilting, and finishing, followed by showing the actual finished quilt.
Lattimer collects vintage and antique quilt tops and finishes them with his award-winning hand quilting. His goal is to preserve the fine art of hand quilting. He started quilting in "about 2006." He has had numerous quilts accepted for American Quilter's Society shows and for the show, “Male Call” at the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum. His "Tree of Life" quilt won the Best Hand Workmanship award in 2013 AQS show in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
Visitors are welcome to MVQG meetings, but there is a $10 speaker fee for the July meeting.
Additional parking will be available for the June and July meetings on North Third Street in the areas around the "No Parking" signs which are covered with white bags. Parking is not permitted in the driveway at the front of the Senior Center or in the parking lot of the apartment building adjacent to the Senior Center.

and embrace all quilting techniques, styles, and methods.
