It was a full house ... and then some, for Libs Elliott event

 Libs Elliott zoomed into the afternoon online meeting for Bay of Quinte Modern Quilt Guild today. It was great to share our event with visitors from across the country. 

Libs shared her process in the design of her quilts, gave us a history of where she started in her quilting journey and we learned about the path she took to where she is today with her work. 

We were even treated to a tour of her new studio space before her visit ended. Many thanks to the attendee who thought to ask her for that favour!

Check out her website to keep tuned in to her upcoming ventures, as to see more of her stunning work:

Quilting with Code

Libs Elliott is known for using computer code and algorithms to create her random quilt pat-terns.
Libs will discuss her ongoing exploration of how technology can transform a traditional craft in-to modern, functional art.

She will show examples of her work and give at-tendees a peek into her design process.

She designs fabric collections for Andover Fabrics, Inc. Her work has been cov-ered by press such as, Design Milk and Casa Vogue Brazil. She lives and works in Toronto, Canada. Libs doesn't 'look like a quilter' (whatever that means).
