Quilting Journey - Traditional to Contemporary
GVQC member, Bev Kondolf, treated us with a trunk show displaying her quilting journey from the traditional to the fiber arts and contemporary quilts she enjoys making today. Bev has been a hand piecer and hand quilter, as well as machine piecing and machine quilting. She has entered a number of shows, been juried into several shows, and won ribbons at a number of these quilt shows, including Genesee Valley QuiltFest.
Bev has been a member of GVQC for many years, volunteered in many capacities, was president of the club, and co-chair of several QuiltFests.
See some of her quilts in the slide show below.
