August 2024 General Meeting: Diana S. Fox, My Quilting Journey, Thursday, August 15, 2024, 12:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. Boulder Valley Christian Church 

Join us as we welcome award-winning textile artist Diana S. Fox as she takes us through her quilting journey – from traditional to art quilting. Diana recently won a Judges’ Recognition award at American Quilters Society (AQS) – Paducah!

An artist and creator to the core, quilting is her medium of choice. There are so many aspects to the art of quilting that she loves—the richness of the community, the tactile nature, learning the basics then bending the rules.

She has had numerous pieces juried into national and international shows and has mounted several successful solo exhibitions, including one currently at the National Quilt Museum. She is a Juried Artist member of Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA) and a member of 4 Common Corners, an invitational art quilt group.

You can see more of this talented artist’s work at Diana S. Fox, contemporaryquilter.com.   See Diana in the Colorado edition of Quiltfolk, (the same edition that featured our Guild), for a full article with photos of her work. She has also been a guest on Quilting Arts.  For more information, contact Nancy Valk at vp-programs@quakingaspenquiltguild.org.
