Sheila Collins

My Creative Journey

Sheila's colorful art quilts are a delight to the eye! Sheila says that she thinks of her art “as a celebration of color and design.” She developed her style and methods by “combining [her] backgrounds in fashion design and graphic design with [her] love of sewing, and the results are bright, cheerful, and fun.” Sheila prefers to create designs using fusible machine appliqué. She has participated in art festivals, exhibitions, and has sold some of her artwork. She does commissioned pieces as well. Her recent focus has been on presentations, workshops, and pattern making, and she says she hopes her “fresh designs and bright colors will leave us inspired and smiling.”

Aug 8 Jeff Warner

The Shape of Bargello

Jeff Warner is an award-winning quilt maker and designer, and an active member of the Long Beach Modern Quilt Guild. He enjoys combining
traditional piecing with modern techniques, styles, and designs. He started out in the stitching world by taking apart articles of clothing and using the pieces as patterns to make new clothing. In the early 1990’s, he discovered an interest in quilting and switched from clothing
construction to piecing quilts. In addition to quilting, Jeff has been a theatrical lighting designer since the 1990’s. He has used his sewing skills to create immense scenery pieces for the stage. He took a bit of a break from quilting to create custom leather clothing, bags, and accessories, but in 2013 he returned to quilting with lots of new ideas for an old familiar style. His specialty is Bargello quilts. His amazing and versatile Kaleidoscope Quilt Pattern is the result of his unique take on the traditional, classic Bargello. Follow him on social media using his hashtag at #jeffwarnerquilter.
Sep 12 Pam Gayle

My Bonnie Hunter Mystery Journey

Pam is going to reveal to us some of the reasons that she has become such an avid fan of Bonnie Hunter’s quilt designs, methods, and techniques. Pam currently teaches classes at Orange Quilt Bee, and we feel very fortunate that she is going to provide a special OCQG workshop which features some of Bonnie Hunter’s techniques combined with Pam’s own amazingly helpful hints and shortcuts.

OCQG Demo Night

Members of our Guild will be presenting several mini demonstrations of how to make something special. By the way, if anyone has an idea for a demo you would like us to present, or a quilting buddy who has something you would like them to share with us, please contact Betsy Weisman, 1st Vice President, Programs, as soon as possible so that we can try to include them. She is looking for a few ideas!
