Carol Taylor lecture

Quilting Arts Magazine
April/May 2012
Last night, our Waterloo County Quilters' Guild hosted award winning quilter Carol Taylor for a very special and inspiring trunk show. Carol's link is here, and WCQG's link is here.You may remember Carol's cover story from Quilting Arts Magazine, in the April / May 2012 issue, on quilting perfect circles. We saw many examples of this quilted circle technique, and they are even more captivating in real than they are in photos!

Carol gave us a run through on many of the 500 quilts she has made, from her first quilts to her current leaf inspired quilts.  Included in her story were photos of how her beautiful studio came into existence. And she graciously answered quite a few questions about her techniques and other life stuff.

You've probably seen photos in various publications of her quilts, or may have seen one at a quilt show. I've said this before, but it really is special to see a large body of quilts made by one person. You really get a good sense of how much life and energy goes into the making of all these quilts. It was really amazing. I don't think I, or the Waterloo Quilt Guild will ever be the same!
