Explore the wonders of reverse applique with Margaret Brewster Willingham, the founder and creative force of Eye of the Beholder Quilt Design.

What is hidden is revealed in our Trunk shows/ lectures.

What is reverse appliqué?  What is the difference between appliqué and reverse appliqué? How do you do it?  Can you do it by machine or by hand? Is it hard or easy to do? How do you quilt reverse appliqué? Find out the answers to these questions and more in “Reverse Applique: Revealing Beauty” Monday at 7:00 pm at Lonesome Valley Quilters .

Then on Tuesday at 10:30 am join us at Chino Valley Quilters for “Quilting: A Creative Journey”. Life and quilting have much in common.  We are shaped by our pasts, but not limited by them.  When we find a creative expression, like quilting, we have the opportunity to take what we have and create something of beauty out of it.  Necessity is still the mother of invention, and that is so very true in the quilting life of Margaret Willingham, the founder and creative force behind Eye of the Beholder Quilt Designs. Come hear about Ms. Willingham’s creative journey while getting to know her quilts.
