Internationally acclaimed fiber artist, quilt designer, lecturer, author, and teacher, Cynthia England will speak at Highland Lakes Quilt Guild (HLQG) September 20th, First Methodist Church of Marble Falls. England began quilting 50 years ago and has received many awards for her beautiful fiber works, including Best of Show (three times) at the prestigious International Quilt Festival in Houston, Texas. Her unique quilting technique known as “Picture Piecing”, unlike the more historical paper piecing method for sewing fabric pieces together, requires less time and wasted fabric.
Her quilts are known for their beautifully detailed imagery of architecture, landscapes, portraits and nature. England’s works of art most certainly were inspired by her experiences traveling across the globe lecturing in multiple countries and sharing her special quilting techniques with quilters in: North America, South Africa, Taiwan, Japan, South Korea, Germany, Canada, Austria, Spain and Mexico. HLQG is fortunate to introduce Cynthia England to the Hill Country quilters and we hope you will take time to join us for this fabulous presentation.
