Next BAS Meeting - April 20, 2016, 7pm

Suzanne Marshall “Evolution of a Quilt Maker”

Suzanne started quilting in the mid 70’s by checking out a library book. As a self-taught quilter, she has developed her own way to appliqué and quilt. She feels lucky to have two quilts in the permanent collection of The National Quilt Museum in Paducah, Kentucky, after winning hand workmanship awards at the American Quilter’s Society Quilt Show and Contest. Her quilt "Toujour Nouveau" was selected as one of 100 Best American Quilts of the Twentieth Century. She has won prizes in many competitions, both nationally and abroad.

As a teacher and author, Suzanne shares her techniques and patterns with us. Her latest book, Quilts from Concept to Contest, is a delightful book to look at and to read! Suzanne and her husband, Garland, live in St Louis, Missouri. They enjoy visits from their four children and ten grandchildren.
