Becky Jackson Presents “Journeys”

ART QUILTER BECKY JACKSON gave the audience a rollicking account of her creative journey from traditional quilting to art quilting at DAFA’s March 25 meeting. Becky presented a trunk show of her work, displaying quilts of all sizes and shapes, and a wide variety of techniques. She talked about taking many workshops, escaping for a year to study in New Mexico, and incorporating humor, musical inspiration and much more in her work. Becky, who is a DAFA member, also led our mini-workshop, “The Ins and Outs of Beading on Quilts.”
