October - “Modern Quilting” a lecture and trunk show presented by Linda Hungerford.

Date: Monday, October 15, 2018.

Place: Fellowship Hall, Ormond Beach Presbyterian Church, 105 Amsden Road, Ormond Beach

Time: 6:30 pm.

In an 80-plus slide presentation, Linda will share the history of the modern quilting movement: its beginnings; how the movement evolved and continues to evolve; and the attributes and elements of a modern quilt. The presentation will conclude with a trunk show of her modern quilts.
Linda Hungerford has been a sewist since childhood, and a quilter since 1976. In 1998 she began domestic machine quilting, and in 2005 began teaching. Her first beginner classes were taught to make mission quilts at her church in Iowa, and ex-panded to churches throughout the Des Moines area. She taught that five-week series of lessons 34 times. As a result of those classes, she wrote First Time Quiltmaking (Landauer Publishing, 2006).
Since moving to The Villages in 2012, she has taught beginner quiltmaking, beyond-beginner technique classes such as foundation paper-piecing, English paper-piecing, a unique technique for binding, and domestic machine quilting. Since 2000, Linda has written quilting-related articles for numerous quilting magazines, and her quilt patterns have been published in magazines including Modern Patchwork. One of her quilts is included in the book Modern Quilts: Designs of the New Century (2017, C&T Publishing).
Linda is the founder of the Central Florida Modern Quilt Guild that began in 2012 (CentralFloridaMQG.blogspot.com), and is currently the chapter’s program chair, and media coordinator.
