A Prairie Star!

Barb Vlack, a member of Prairie Star Quilters Guild (that’s us!), warms us up this January with her love of quiltmaking! She has been learning and teaching quiltmaking since 1976. She labels her style of quilt designing as “innovative traditional,” because she loves to take traditional patterns and make them look new and different. Working with the Electric Quilt software makes that focus easy for this expert user of the program.

Her specialties, in addition to EQ7, include borders, freezer paper foundation piecing, and vintage quilts from the 1930s. She has taught at the International Quilt Festival in Houston, the AQS show in Paducah, Quilter’s Heritage in Lancaster, PA; the Martha Pullen Quilt Academy, Quilting in the Tetons, and at symposia sponsored by statewide guilds in Colorado, Minnesota, Missouri, Wisconsin, Michigan, the Gulf States, and North Carolina.
