The Spring Line-up for EDQG
May's Show and Tell
May 19, 2021: Joanne Flamand: Victoria Findlay Wolfe class (Education Grant Recipient)
Our 2020 Teaching Grant recipient is long-time EDQG guild member and appreciated advertiser (owner of Spools: The Workshop in Leduc), Joanne Flamand. Joanne used her $500 grant award to attend Victoria Findlay Wolfe’s Double Wedding Ring workshop. Although this workshop was held virtually, Joanne has learned a great deal from this master quilter, and she will tell us all about her experience at our May meeting.
“Double Wedding Ring quilts have always tugged at the traditional strings of my quilting heart. I found a Double Wedding Ring quilt top in my mother’s things when she moved to an assisted living facility. I discovered Victoria Findlay Wolfe and her exploration of the Double Wedding Ring in Austin when I attended Quilt Con to learn more about modern quilting. I was hooked! I knew I wanted to explore and experiment with her method of fabric selection and piecing some Double Wedding Ring quilts. Thanks to the generous scholarship from EDQG, I have been doing just that, using Victoria’s templates and her class instruction to guide me during this past year”.
