The Texas Quilt Museum will feature a retrospective from the late quilting superstar, Sue Garman. “Sue Garman: Traditional Masterworks” will run June 28-September 30, 2018.
Thanks to the generosity of Garman’s family, the Museum has filled two galleries with this master quilter’s original creations. Garman was widely known through her internet site ComeQuilt.com which has been continued by her two daughters since her 2017 passing. For four decades, Garman generously shared her techniques, innovative patterns, and advice with thousands of quilt enthusiasts. Her own quilts won numerous prizes and were recognized for their excellence. They’ve been published in many magazines as well as the book, 500 Traditional Quilts.
Garman was gifted in mathematics, with a CPA degree, and a lifelong career as an executive at NASA. The attention to detail demanded by her job can be seen in her quilts, with precision piecing as well as amazingly detailed appliqué in her inspiring compositions.
“Sue Garman’s 32 quilts run the gamut from spectacular to witty and fun,” says Museum Curator Dr. Sandra Sider. “They reflect the genius of this very talented maker.”
The exhibit is sponsored by The American Business Women's Association, Treaty Oak Chapter.
