February Guest Speaker – Desley Maisano

At our Monthly Meeting on 27 February we will have one of our own speaking. Desley Maisano is an extremely talented long arm quilter, she has also been a member of Waverley Patchworkers since 2003. She therefore has great insight on both the technicalities of machine quilting and the hopes and dreams of the typical patchworker who wants a beautifully finished quilt.


Desley has called her talk Quilting – some things to think about. During the talk she will be encouraging us to think about the quilting at all stages of the quilt making process, not only at the end once the quilt top has been made. She will be bringing a lot of quilts to illustrate her approach.

These two quilts by Desley are clearly examples of designs where the piecing and quilting work together to make a stunning end result.
