Discover the techniques and tools necessary to create these colorful American style keepsakes. Observe how different geometric shapes are selected, placed and then stitched together. Afterward, visit "Quilts and Color", Gund Gallery (LG 31) and be dazzled by a kaleidoscope of colors and patterns in the acclaimed Pilgrim/Roy collection of quilts.
Anne Gallo has a background in math while Susan Raban has an art background and together they have developed simple methods to make beautiful quilts. As long-time educators they have traveled through Europe and the US teaching the essentials of quilting. Together they create quilts to teach with and then pass them on to charities for fund-raising events. They are founding members of the Chelmsford Quilters Guild and the New England Quilt Museum in Lowell, Massachusetts.
