We’re pleased to introduce the new Member Spotlight series. The Spotlight is simply a way to learn a little about each other and our shared love of quilting. And, each Spotlight member gets time at the next meeting to be, well, in the spotlight and share some of her favorite modern quilts or other works.
First up: Lynne Crawford, joined BMQG during 2020 and attended her first meetings on Zoom.
How did you first get involved in with Boise Modern Quilt Guild?
Lynne: I found the Boise Modern Quilt Guild online.
What’s your first memory of something related to quilting or sewing?
Lynne: Taking a quilting class and working on a sampler quilt from the book Quilts, Quilts, Quilts.
What colors, shapes, fabrics do you gravitate to? What do you use most in your designs?
Lynne: I like solid colors.
What do you do when you aren’t quilting?
Lynne: I like to knit and embroider. I also like to ride my road bike and ski.
What are you working on now?
Lynne: A Carolyn Friedlander pattern called Ariel. I also have several quilts that need the binding hand sewed.
Do you have a preferred snack or beverage while you’re sewing? If so, what is it?
Lynne: No food – I’m too messy!
What do you listen to or watch while you’re sewing? Do you have any recommendations to share?
Lynne: Audiobooks. I use an app called Libby that lets me check out audiobooks from the library (for free). I like mystery/detective stories as well as some science fiction/fantasy. My favorite authors/series are Louise Penny (Inspector Gamache), M.C. Beaton (Agatha Raisin), Jim Butchers (The Dresden Files) and N K Jemison (Broken Earth series).
