Applique Society with Alice Person - Oct 28, 2016
Alice started quilting after her mother passed away in 1981 leaving behind
an unfinished, hand pieced quilt top. Knowing that she was the only one to finish it,
she began to learn the basics from friends and the local guild workshops.
She found applique to be more rewarding than machine piecing.
After retiring, she relocated to Conroe, took an applique and hand piecing class
with Darlene Christopherson, learning skills needed to finish the quilt top.
Darlene allowed Alice to teach her applique method at the then,
brand new Quilter's Quarters quilt shop.
Alice has taken classes from many recognized applique teachers.
She was active in Golden Needles Quilt Guild,
most notably organizing the show quilt displays in shows from 2002 to 2009.
She also organized and currently coordinates the local chapter of The Applique Society,
an international organization that promotes the art of applique.
The Applique Society Meets monthly at
3301 West Davis, Suite B
Conroe, Texas 77304
She has won numerous ribbons for her quilts and even has a quilt in
Darlene Christopherson's book: A Perfect Union of Patchwork and Applique'.
