February 2017: Laura Welkins’ Small Quilts
Dancing Dahlia by Laura Welkins
Laura Welkins learned to sew at a young age with the help of two excellent seamstresses, her mother and grandmother. She has made many clothes, doll clothes, pillows, curtains and recently reupholstered a loveseat.
Laura joined the Quilters Guild of Indianapolis in 2007. She entered her first guild show that year and won first place in the appliqued bed quilt category. She was hooked! She won some ribbons at a few regional shows but the more notable awards came in the past few years when she started making miniature quilts. Her miniatures won first place in Houston in both 2014 and 2015 and a third place in 2016. At the Paducah show she won a third place in 2014, first in 2015 and Best of Show Miniature in 2016 for her quilt, Daisy Chain. That quilt is now on display at the National Quilt Museum.
Another great presentation to see.
