March Guild Meeting: Maria Shell

On March 17, York Heritage Quilters Guild welcomes Maria Shell, from Alaska!  Maria started out as a traditional quilter, but she soon found herself making abstract pieced art quilts that looked surprisingly modern. She will share her journey in the traditional, art and modern quilt movements. Join us on Tuesday evening for her talk and trunk show “Traditional, Art, Modern Notes From the Field“.

Maria was invited to share some of her quilts at a special “Rising Stars” exhibit at the Houston International Quilt Show in 2019.  You won’t have to travel internationally, to see these bright and bold quilts!

Limited spaces are available in Maria’s workshops:  Riffing on Tradition – Exploring Design Elements with Quilt Blocks on Tuesday March 24 (9:30am to 3:30pm) and Lines + Triangles = Squares on Wednesday March 25 (9:30am to 3:30pm).  Workshops are held in the studios at the Toronto Botanical Gardens, 777 Lawrence Ave E, North York.  Contact us if you’d like to sign up.


About jmStitching

A love of stitching has been inherited from my mother and grandmother. I can’t remember a time when I didn’t have at least a couple of stitching projects underway. Whether it’s by hand or machine, there are always new projects I’d like to try or fibres I’d like to experiment with…and a few projects waiting to be finished!
