Guild Meeting - Thursday, April 12th - Kathy Dunigan

academy kathy

Kathy is a true southern belle, from Tallulah, Louisiana, who just happens to be "blooming where she has been planted" in Rockwall, Texas! Never one to stray from her roots, her appliqué work blends "all things Baltimore" with the lush and rich fauna of the Deep South. Kathy began quilting in 1987, but discovered appliqué in 1993, with her first appliqué project – a year and a half long Baltimore Album class, which featured a book by Elly Sienkiewicz. As Kathy has been quoted, "I truly discovered the joy that was missing in my quilting when I discovered the album quilts." She fell in love with Elly's methods and along the way, mapped out her own fun path. She never hesitates to "embellish, enliven and embolden" her appliqué. Beads, trims, ribbons and "findings" all find their way home into her work. "Anything goes, if it makes your heart beat faster!" she excitedly proclaims.

For more information about Kathy and details about the two workshops, see the Programs page.
