Quilt Expo: Lecture with Cathy Geier

Cathy Geier lecturing on her technique

So it was the first day of the Quilt Expo 2015 here in Madison, WI, and I was excited to attend. I’ve been going to the Expo every year since it began, and had purchased my tickets and registered for my lectures & class way back in June.

After spending the morning looking at the quilt show, and having some quality time shopping at the vendors, I was ready for my first afternoon lecture with Cathy Geier, called “Successful Landscapes”.

I had often admired her landscape quilts, and couldn’t wait to get her tips and see some of her beautiful quilts “in person”.

She gave a very informative PowerPoint presentation showing her process when creating her beautiful quilts–from her earlier quilts using squares, to her more recent quilts using strips.

Cathy’s latest book, “Lovely Landscape Quilts” has more information on her strip technique, which you can see in my favorite quilt–her landscape of Painted Rock.

Afterwards, we were treated to a trunk show of her beautiful pictorial and landscape quilts.

She had brough so many breathtaking quilts to share with us.

You can see more of her amazing quilts at her website gallery.

 

 

 

 

 

If you ever get the chance to take a class or lecture from Cathy Geier, or see her quilts at a show, I highly recommend it.

Until next time, HAPPY QUILTING!
