DFW quilter Heather Pregger, one of DAFA’s award-winning art quilters, presented the guild’s first program of 2014 on Jan. 27. In a trunk show and talk titled “Evolution of an Art Quilter” Heather told how she first discovered quilts and started working initially as a traditional quilter. Over a period of many years, she has developed a mastery of colorful, large abstract quilts and has won a number of significant prizes, including Best Large Art Quilt at the 2013 International Quilt Festival in Houston.
“Fiber Trafficking” earlier in the evening proved that one member’s trash is another member’s treasure. In the hour before the program, members swapped art supplies and cadged unwanted and unneeded items from others' stashes.
