Tucson Quilt Study Group
Ellie Towne Community Center

Tucson, AZ 85704.
This month's pictures are mostly from Linda L's continuing ed, “Fabrics Over Time”. The “Bow Tie“ Quilt has tags that indicate the fabric and it’s place in time. She also shared a book by Edie McGinnis, “A Bag of Scraps. Quilts of the Garment District.
We documented only two quilts, Terry G-W’s Mimbres Symbols” that she made after a work shop, and Kate Clark’s Dahlia Wreath, a 2017 yard sale hand quilted treasure.
Sue F. presented a program about Redwork quilts. Click HERE to download Sue's program notes.
In April, the team spent their meeting time documenting these lovely quilts.
In addition to documenting several quilts, the program included a doll quilt lecture by Sue. Click HERE for meeting notes.

Quilt Study in Tucson is conducted by members of the Arizona Quilt Documentation Team. This team began in 2013 and meets monthly to study quilts. Each meeting consists of an education topic and a quilt documentation. A quilt may be brought by a member, or the team may go to a museum to document. To date, the team has documented quilts from the Arizona History Museum in Tucson and the Sanguinetti House Museum and Gardens in Yuma. Click HERE for information about Arizona museums.
Depending on meeting location availability (see above), the team meets on Monday or Tuesday of the first or second week of the month from 9:30 to 12:30. All those interested are welcome. Please use the contact form below to find out the exact date for the next meeting. You may also use the contact form to request a guest speaker for your group.
