From July 22 to Aug. 6, Woodwalk Gallery co-curates Quilting Savvy with Catherine Davidson featuring the quilts of Laurie Moegenburg along with three nationally known quilters, each with a very different look and feel. Davidson introduced Jillaine Burton, of Woodwalk, to the idea of bringing these talented artists to the gallery. Moegenburg’s work will hang nicely alongside Kent Williams, Ann Fahl and Sonji Hunt, all of whom are Woodwalk artists this year.
Moegenburg feels she has really grown with her quilting. “I like to do different techniques, but I mostly enjoy free motion machine quilting and fused applique. I enjoy creating my own designs, but I also like pattern quilts too, as long as they are not bigger than a lap quilt.”
Moegenburg started quilting in 1979 when Georgia Bonesteel introduced “lap quilting.” She really liked the idea of piecing and quilting one block at a time and being able to take it on the go.
There will be all sizes of quilts for sale, everything from mini quilts to major wall hanging pieces. Enjoy the kick-off reception July 23, 3-5pm, with refreshments and light hors d’oeuvres.
