September 12, 2022 Meeting Speaker is
Jaimie Davis


Have you ever wanted to make a landscape quilt but thought it was out of your reach? Join Jaimie for an insightful look at how to create a one-of-a-kind quilt even if you’ve never thought of yourself as an artist. Follow along as she shows you how she uses Google Images, a copier and a light box to “build” a pattern and enjoy lighthearted stories of her less-than-successful landscapes and the principles for success she discovered along the way.

Hi, I’m Jaimie and

I am passionate about making quilts.

I began quilting as a young mom who needed a creative outlet, and my passion has since grown into making and selling patterns, teaching, and conducting workshops with students.

Want to learn more about who I am and why I love what I do? Click here to find out!



Meeting will be held via Zoom.

    PIQF Special Exhibit for PVQA members is accepting entries for its
    Pet and Animal Portraits. Entry is done through Heidi Sandkuhle—not PIQF or PVQA.
    This exhibit has also been expanded to three entries per PVQA member—quilts made in any year, and previously shown, may be entered.
    To enter, email Heidi Sandkuhle an attached  photo of your completed quilt, the title, size, Artist Statement, and insurance value.  There are NO fees to enter or show your work, and Heidi Sandkuhle will transport, hang, and then return your quilts for you.
    Quilts may be selected based on design, technique, and Artist Statement, as space is limited.
    Quilts may be any size or technique as long as they are a
    portrait of your pet or an animal.
    Any questions or concerns can be addressed to Heidi Sandkuhle via email. Members should use the roster to look-up her email address.
