Featuring: Sherri Lynn Wood / Ann Myhre

Posts On: September 22, 2019

Trailer


TQS opens its doors to improv quilter extraordinaire Sherri Lynn Wood, who embraces the idea of working with what you have. With a Masters in Theology and Fine Art, Sherri Lynn brings a voice to her works, where she considers her quilts to be sculptures. Then using the traditional Hole in the Barn Door block, Sherri Lynn and Alex cut and build a variation to explore pattern as they build a "new" block. We follow this with Sherri Lynn discussing the process of making bereavement quilts, using garments owned and worn by a lost loved one, and how these quilts become a tangible item that gives you emotional comfort.

Ann Myhre finishes up by offering a look at her collections of intended work and how she likes to store them, via vintage tea cups, baskets, small containers, and other various objects. Ann then presents a collaged work featuring a fox that includes a multitude of techniques.

As a practising perfectionist who loves the preplanned look, this episode set my teeth on edge! But I did appreciate Sherri's phiosophy about grieving and using loved ones' clothing to make comfort quilts. Thank you, TQS, for the variety of practice you expose us to.
