Coastal Quilt Artists Exhibit

The Coastal Quilt Artists (CQA) will be exhibiting their work at the Bridgewater Public Library during March and April.

CQA was formed in the autumn of 2004. This eclectic group of women is comprised of quilt artists from Boston and the South Shore. Some members were former students of Kathleen Weinheimer (1940-1996), a prominent Bridgewater quilt artist.

One of the featured quilts will be the Fenway Park Slice Quilt. Every year CQA makes a composite quilt based on a photo. This local landscape is then "sliced" into sections and each quilter interprets her panel. The techniques used to reproduce the photo involve all kinds of surface design including painting, photo transfer, silk screening, embroidery, fused fabrics, beads, trims, netting and massive machine quilting.

Exhibitors are: Lynne Conover, Betty Crowell, Janet Dye, Sandy Gregg, Anne Marcin, Penny Myles, Graciela Piccolo, Joan Randall, Mary Lou Schwinn, Pat Smith, and Bobbie Sullivan.
