Like most large quilt guilds, the Asheville Quilt Guild has many talented members.  Today one member, Meg Manderson, shared her journey as a quiltmaker with us.  She began stitching using traditional approaches, realizing quickly her personality and design sense wasn't suited for patchwork.

After lots of evolutions, Meg now concentrates on what I'd describe as minimal landscapes.....there is detail........ but only what's necessary.....  Please enjoy her lovely work.

These last two pieces are her newest.  Meg has been 'rust' and 'mud' dyeing muslin and acheiving some really fascinating effects.  Who'd have thunk red clay dirt could provide such interesting texture and inspiration.
