- Program: : “From the Beginning to Finding My Passion in Pixels, My Journey in Quilting”
- Speaker: Dee Brouhard, Pixel Quilts, Tulsa, OK
Our October speaker is Dee Brouhard, the driving force behind Pixel Quilts, an idea and business she dreamed up after realizing how much she loved the process of creating this particular type of quilt.
A self taught quilter of 17 years with a background in Marketing and Design, Dee made her first pixel quilt in 2008, a Super Mario quilt for her nephew.
“There is something about the whole process of Pixel Quilts that I love,” says Dee. “From the dreaming up of the project and then the designing of the quilt and putting it together, it enables me to use my creativity to produce something striking, which is visually very different from the norm.”
The morning presentation will explore many of the tips, tricks and techniques Dee has learned the hard way in pixel quilts and the design process.
She will also explain the pitfalls of pixel quilt design, particularly choosing the images that will get the best out of this unique quilting process. Dee will touch on her most popular pixel quilts, including the quilt requested by Queen Elizabeth, along with a trunk show of many other quilts.
