January Program

The program for the for January 17-18 meetings is our own Linda Frost. Linda will share
how her quilts are inspired by current events and her travels to Guatemala, New Zealand, and Australia in "Inspirations from Down South."

Here's some of what she's written about herself:

Linda Frost has lived in Kansas her entire life and has resided in Lawrence for over 30 years. Looking for a creative outlet that would simultaneously fill her need to be both famous and reclusive, Linda decided that the world of quilting was for her.

Her work as been exhibited in galleries and quilt shows through out the country; including Houston’s Quilts, Inc. Festival, Paducah’s AQS show, and the Ontario Museum of History and Art. It has also been shown locally at the Alice C. Sabitini Art Gallery, the 1109 Gallery and the Lawrence Arts Center.

 “Patchwork Jayhawk”, a commission piece, was part of the “Jayhawks on Parade” in Lawrence, KS during 2003. In 2007, Linda was honored with the Phoenix Award for her work as an independent curator of textile exhibits and promotion of art quilts. Linda is currently working on a quilt book about a Kansas sampler quilt for the Kansas City Star Books to celebrate Kansas’s Sesquicentennial.

You may remember when she did this quilt featuring tornados, buffalos, sunflowers, etc as a block of the month for the KVQG several years ago. Click here to see the cover of Happy Birthday, Kansas!
