“Adding the Secret Ingredient” – a MeadowLyon Adventure
In this 1-hr. program, we’ll tell how our business blossomed from a single quilt to a repertoire of the most unique patterns in the machine quilting world. Spiced with fun stories of inspiration, midnight rush-jobs, and “how-tos” these quilts will come to life. We’ll pass around lots of samples for a “good look.” This “Overflowing Trunk” show will introduce you to our expanding line of designs stitched on specialty quilts that you’ll find nowhere else!
With an understanding of how unique stitching and thread choice support special quilts we can explore the Secret Ingredients: Adventure filled with the excitement of life, Fantasy or Fascination for the heart, Culture for a worldwide dimension and Discovery with Embellishments that add artistic interest. It’s an Inspiring Show for traditional and machine quilters alike!
“MeadowLyon’s Magical Theme Quilts”
MeadowLyon Patterns make quilts fun and, oh, so interesting to explore! See how we do it in this 1-hr. mini-version of our MQS Show “how-to” program.
In this glorified and instructional Trunk Show you’ll see our newest and best quilts all designed in the Theme quilt way. On our giant flannel board, we’ll explore how to use our distinctive patterns by pulling our compatible patterns together to create a finished masterpiece. Best of all, you’ll see how to incorporate complementary blocks, borders and pantos into your own quilts. We’ll spend some time talking about what type of quilts work well with the various types of patterns. Important considerations for sizing will be discussed. Some of our patterns will also be opened up to view and our big charts will be on display.
“Back to Nature”
Let’s narrow it down to everything from Nature. And MeadowLyon has plenty of it! Animals and natural venues galore will inspire you to create your next quilt depicting the wonders of the amazing world around us. You’ll enjoy a good look at African Safari, Dawgs, Fishy Business, SnowBirds, Flowers, Backwoods, and more. Plus, we’ll talk about what choices we make to enhance the flora and fauna that we love.
“Baby It’s Cold Outside”-Snow Dyeing and a Potpourri of other Dyestuffs.
If you haven’t tried snow-dyeing you’ve missed loads of fun. Trudging out into the snow filled yard with boots and rubber gloves is the perfect way to spend a snowy afternoon. You’ll be amazed at the beautiful colors that emerge as the procion color-infused snow melts through the fabric! It’s sooo fun to open it up and see what has developed. It’s not all winter fun. When summer heats up, pick those weeds along the roadside for another afternoon of dying fun! You’ll have colors to “dye” for, no matter what the season. Enjoy an instructional slide show and natural dye samples to play with.
Heritage Quilts: Let me Outta that Trunk!
Can you tell your history through quilts? Maybe your mothers or grandmothers or even Great Grandmothers were quilters. This program lets all my treasures out of the “Trunk.” They’re so happy to breathe some fresh air. In a trip down memory lane, I’ll talk about sharing your life and history through the quilts you make and have.
