July 16, 2012 Program: Alice Kellogg
Alice Kelloggwill be presenting an exciting program on Collaborative Quilts.Alice's experience started with the traditional quilting styles, but she quickly tired of patchwork and found art quilts were more satisfying. Now she dyes her own fabrics and designs her own pieces. Alice has been a very active member of Central Oklahoma Quilters Guild for more than 10 years and is founder and currently president of Edmond Quilt Guild. Alice notes she started quilting in 1993, but actually started making blocks when she was a child from pieces her grandmother had cut out for her. Alice's main interest is in Art Quilts, but she calls herself a quilter, not an artist, and she makes all sizes and types of quilts. She loves to have her quilts displayed where others can look and enjoy (or shake their heads!). She has entered every quilt show since she became a member of COQG. She finds the critiques interesting and often comical!
Besides quilt shows, she likes to enter Fiberworks where the show centers around artwork made from fiber, which could be anything from pine needles to quilts. In 2004, she won an Award of Merit at Fiberworks. She has taught classes at Fabriques n Fun, Fun to Sew, My Sisters Quilt, Quilter's Corner, Sooner Quilts, Savage Quilter and COQG's quilt show. She has held demos at COQG, EQG, and NAQG. You will see some of her hand-dyes in the Chihuly Quilt at the July NAQG meeting.
