Do you follow Timna Tarr? She is the maker of many award winning quilts, including one of my favorites, the egg quilt!

I met Timna at my first market and have enjoyed ogling her stunning quilts ever since. Her sense of color is spot on! This is one of her map quilts in progress.

And she’s coming to North Carolina to teach her map quilt workshop and do a lecture/trunk show with the Triad MQG.

Holyoke 1938

Here are the details:

Tuesday, July 25, 6:30: Lecture/Trunk Show $5 fee at the door

Wednesday, July 26, 10-4: Map Workshop $75 for TMQG members & $85 for nonmembers

Both events will be at South Fork Community Center on Country Club. We meet in the main large building in the back behind Cricket’s Nest.

For the workshop, Timna will start out by showing her techniques. Then we will all start our maps. Each person gets to choose their own location! I’m considering doing the neighborhood I grew up in! Or maybe where I lived in DC… So, I haven’t totally decided yet. If you’re interested in signing up, you can pay via paypal here or email triadmqg at gmail dot com to pay with cash or check.

  1. I loved all the map quilts at QuiltCon, couldn’t get over how many there were, and I had been thinking of trying one someday after seeing one in a quilting magazine.
    Anyway, what fun that you are having a map quilt workshop there. Wish I could be there, too.

  2. the map quilts are amazing. How on earth does someone come up with such a creative design!
