PROGRAM: “Why stay home to quilt when you can quilt at a retreat: thoughts about my quilting adventures past, present and future.” Away-from-home quilting experiences, planning for retreats and members sharing their experiences.

Program presenter:  Ann Abel, accomplished quilter and KPQG member. In addition to the guild, Ann is a member of the Indiana State Quilt Guild (ISQG) and American Quilter’s Society (AQS). She enjoys taking classes, attending retreats and quilt shows, and visiting quilt shops wherever she and her husband travel.

Ann said, “I took my first quilt class at Hazzitall on the east side of Kokomo in 1978 while I was on maternity leave. I finished that quilt in about 1 1/2 years but did not do much more with quilting until my daughter graduated from high school. I joined the guild in 1996 and have been quilting actively ever since.”

Ann participated in the Cherrywood Lion King challenge in 2016. She created a quilt that was 20″ x 20″ and made it from the challenge fabrics plus a few other Cherrywood colors. She titled the quilt “…working on my Roar!” The quilt was chosen to travel. Ann sent it to Cherrywood in July 2016 and received it back in February 2018.

Space-Themed Quilts at Kokomo Library South Branch’s “Discover Space Exhibit” through Friday, March 29, 2019

The Discover Space, A Cosmic Journey Exhibit* is on display at the Kokomo Howard County Public Library (KHCPL), South Branch, 1755 East Center Road, 46902 through Friday, March 29, 2019. A fun, learning exhibit for you to take your children and grandchildren to have hands-on and interaction with it. AND, there are two space-themed quilts included that are provided by Kokomo Piecemakers Quilt Guild (KPQG) members.

KPQG member Nancy Jeter and grandson Josh Chesshir loaned their space-themed quilt for display during the space exhibit. Josh is 11 and in the 6th grade. This is his second quilt. He mostly did the cutting and piecing of a kit purchased at the 2017 KPQG quilt show. Josh studied space last year when they made the quilt. The longarm quilting was done by The Scarlet Thread Quilt Co., Twelve Mile, Indiana.

Grandma Nancy shares, “Josh has sat and sewn with me since he was a toddler. First, he just watched. Then, I let him try to guide the fabric and he worked his way up to guiding the fabric by himself as grandma passed the correct pieces to him to sew together.”

KPQG member Marilyn Parkin’s loaned her bigger-than-life spaceman quilt for the space-themed exhibit. The longarm quilting was done by KPQG member Janet Bailey.

*KHCPL is one of only nine libraries selected to host the second national tour of the interactive Discover Space: A Cosmic Journey traveling exhibition. The hands-on, interactive exhibit is divided by four sections: SPACE – The Final Frontier; Electric Space; Exploring Our Solar System; and Cosmic Journey. Some of Discover Space features include a game to allow you to build a solar system; a touchable meteorite collection; and a Space Weather Kiosk with a Solar Monitoring Station that shows near-real-time changes in the sun’s atmosphere and photosphere.
