CPQG Meeting – Program by Betty Ford-Smith

September 3 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

“I started making Pine Cone Quilts in 2004 under the apprenticeship of a 92 year old African American woman in Sebring, Florida at her home, after I saw her beautiful hand sewn quilts. My apprenticeship with Arlene Dennis, known as Miss Sue, went on for 6 years and I completed 2 quilts with her supervision, she however, completed 4 while I was with her. After she passed in 2010, I wanted to teach others how to make Pine Cone Quilts.  The quilts were very unique and I had to do some research to find out more about the quilts. I then became obsessed and starting making them for show and for sale.”
