LET’S GET IMPROVISATIONAL WITH LISA RUBLE

My name is Lisa and I blog under the name Ellie Q (Ellie = L.E. = Lisa Erin and “Q” for Quilter) here at Color My World soon to be Quilty Zest. In my dreams of being a writer, I’d always wanted a pen name, so I figured why not try it out here?! I was bitten by the color bug early on in life, and have dabbled in drawing, painting, photography, and fabric. I learned to sew as a young girl, making clothes for my Cabbage Patch Kid, and then got into quilting about 19 years ago. In addition to freelancing as a “day” job (which often reaches into the wee hours of the morning!), I spend my time hanging with my husband and three little boys, (who add a whole different type of color to my world–they’re 11 and 8, and 5!), scheming to paint every room in my house, and finding time to spend in my sewing studio, playing with fabric.

OCTOBER 11, 2O22 LECTURE: HOOKED ON IMPROV QUILTING TRUNK SHOW

Where: Church of the Dunes

Time: 7:00pm

Hooked on Improv Quilting Trunk Show

In this trunk show, I’ll share the quilts that illustrate my journey from traditional to modern quilting. Each of my quilts comes with a story about the artists who inspired my work (Victoria Findlay Wolfe and Gwen Marston, for starters!), as well as plenty of close-up looks. I’ll also walk you through the process of sewing a wonky log cabin block, my personal favorite! If you’re interested in exploring the no-rules world of improv piecing and the design doors it can open, this is the lecture for you!

See the Workshop page for a workshop the same day.

Terri Watson
Terri discovered quilting in 1989 when, interestingly enough, she was picking up cross-stitch supplies at a local craft store. She was intrigued by Eleanor Burns’ book Quilt in a Day, and ended up purchasing the book, fabric and a rotary cutter that day. In 2004, she purchased a Gammill long-arm quilting system. Today, Terri runs her own business quilting for others. Terri’s business is thriving — she currently quilts between 150 and 200 quilts per year! See more of her work at
