I was recently interviewed and photographed by a local paper. Below is a portion of the article and a link to the original. They took an 'action shot' of me at the machine. LOL
Diane Knott, a Bulloch Hall Quilt Guild member, will have her quilts and book,
‘Scrap Quilt Secrets,’ featured at the 34th annual Quilt Show at Bulloch Hall in Roswell from March 4 to 13. (Staff / Erika Wells)An excerpt from the article...
Twenty years ago, author Diane Knott had no idea visiting a quilt event at Bulloch Hall in Roswell would lead to a passion for the craft and lasting friendships.
It was then that Knott joined the Bulloch Hall Quilt Guild, which will host the 34th annual Quilt Show at 180 Bulloch Avenue from March 4 to 13. The event will take place Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday from 1 to 4 p.m. Admission is $8 for adults, $7 for seniors, $6 for age 6 through 18 and free for children under age 6.
The show will include quilt exhibits from local and visiting artists including Lexington, Kentucky-based fiber artist Christine Cetrulo and Knott. Knott is a former Roswell resident who will feature 10 quilts and her book “Scrap Quilt Secrets.”
“The thing I love most about teaching and sharing quilting is helping people make their own choices; giving people the tools to have the confidence to create something new from anything else they’ve seen,” Knott said.
She said she looks forward to sharing her work at Bulloch Hall — the childhood home of Mittie Bulloch, President Theodore Roosevelt’s mother — and where she was invited to become a guild member. Over the years, she has made memories, explored quilting and created the S.C.R.A.P.S. — style, contrast, repetition, accents, pallet and selvages — system.
“I try to walk people through my thought process and the questions I ask myself about what it is that I want to capture in the story, color or feel of the quilt,” Knott said. “There are so many exciting possibilities.”
She will discuss her experience and celebrate the launching of her book from C&T Publishing at a reception at 5 p.m. March 6.
