Lecture: Linda Neal
August 17 @ 10:30 am
Lecture – Trunk Show
Linda will share some of her favorite quilts- primarily applique with added embellishment- from years of quilting. When describing her quilts she often says “I don’t do easy,” and “the original pattern had… but I did…” She’s won awards at AQS Paducah and Houston IQA, as well as her local Quilt Plano and Dallas Quilt Show, and other National shows.
Linda Neal is an award- winning quilter who lives in McKinney, Texas with her husband Robert. She began quilting 17 years ago after retiring from pediatric/neo-natal nursing. She has won awards from: AQS Paducah and Phoenix, Houston IQA, Pacific International Quilt Festival, Shipshewana Quilt Festival, Quilt Odyssey, Road to California, Quilt Plano, and the Dallas Quilt Show.
Linda’s winning quilts are primarily applique with added embellishment. She often makes changes to the published pattern to add personalization and visual impact. Her goal with each quilt is to make each block in the quilt her favorite. She challenges viewers to search for the added embellishment and detail in each block. Her motto “I can’t do easy,” shows in every quilt.
Linda enjoys sharing her applique knowledge with students. Her class includes lots of hands-on demonstrations and examples. Even the most advanced students will learn some new tricks! Linda is able to teach beginners how to applique, assist with a project in process, or help you through an applique problem.
