Jessica Beaudet is the Star of the Day!

We enjoyed a thrilling presentation by Eugene Modern Quilt Guild President Jessica Beaudet Wednesday afternoon, “The Modern Quilt Movement & Trunk Show.”  And what a trunk show she shared with us!

Jessica is an accomplished and passionate speaker; I am so very glad I was able to hear her presentation:

She very generously shared her knowledge of the Modern Quilt Movement, reminding the audience that we all speak the same quilting language, no matter what the form of our communication is: in person, by telephone, or by internet connection.  She uses the internet as a tool to enhance and share her quilting knowledge with quilters worldwide.

A traditional block, and really, a red & green quilt, but with a definite edge!

We thank Jessica profusely, for her presentation at the show today!  Our community is so fortunate to have such a talented and generous quilter in our midst!

And lastly, exhibited in our show, is a marvelous quilt by Jenny Bonynge (quilted by Cynthia Brunz) in the modern aesthetic.
