November General Meeting
Thursday, November 16, 2023, 12pm-3pm
Member Spotlight Trunk Show

Our guild has some very talented and creative quilters. In November, we have invited three of our members to share their individual quilting journeys while showing some amazing quilts. We are in for a huge TREAT!

Debbie Rouse

Debbie is a longtime quilter, having begun her quilting journey in the late 70s before the advent of rotary cutters, mats, and big rulers.  She is a traditional quilter but loves to try new techniques, sometimes with patterns, and sometimes by creating her own unique designs. She often rescues old quilt tops and makes them her own. Debbie recently won multiple awards for her quilts at the Boulder County Fair. She won’t brag about it, but we can!

Rochelle Moore

Rochelle is originally from New York. After graduating from the Fashion Institute in Manhattan she worked as a clothing and fabric designer until she started a family. Although she thought it insane to cut beautiful fabric into small pieces and then sew it back together, she took her first quilting class after moving to Colorado. The rest is
history. Rochelle is one of our founding members and our first president. We are thankful that she was on the hunt for quilting friends when she founded Quaking Aspen Quilt Guild just over 20 years ago. Thank you Rochelle!

Sandy Smith

Our most recent past president, Sandy Smith appreciates all types of quilts, from traditional to modern, but finds that she gravitates more and more to contemporary quilts that put new spins on traditional, time-tested blocks. She also enjoys creating her own designs with her Electric Quilt program. Putting together color palettes and arranging blocks on her design wall are her favorite parts of the quilting process. Those of us lucky enough to sew with her from time to time know just how creative and talented she is.
