FEBRUARY 2022 MEETING
Meetings will be held at
Pleasant Valley United Methodist Church
TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 8TH
1 p.m. & 7 p.m.
Hello! I am Laura. I am a quilter, pattern designer, a homeschooling mom of three boys, and I live in Smithville, MO. I am also an ex-math teacher—and with a last name like Piland—there is a strong love of ‘pi’ in our house!
I have been designing and publishing quilt patterns since 2016. My work has been in magazines, newspapers, fabric company catalogs, look books, industry e-mail newsletters and campaigns. My quilt patterns are available at quilt shops worldwide and from the industry’s top distributors.
Laura will be presenting two different truck shows. In the afternoon, her truck show is “Try Something New” Just after finishing her very first quilt 10 years ago, she decided that she would try something new with every quilt that she made. She has made well over 300 quilts since then, and she still loves the thrill of trying new things. Every quilt in this show features a unique and different technique. Bias tape applique, fabric weaving, quilt as you go, prairie points, and 3-D elements are examples of techniques included in the show. Get prepared for inspiration and leave ready to try something new in your next quilt.
Her evening trunk show is “Batiks Go Modern” The saturated colors and high thread count of batiks make them irresistible! But batiks aren’t just for traditional quilts? No way! Get ready to turn your batik stash into modern quilts that are fun to sew and will wow your friends!
