"Batiks in the Making"
Barb Wilhelm grew up in rural Bowling Green, Ohio and was taught to sew by her mother on a treadle sewing machine. She was active in 4-H, sewing much of her own clothing. She made her first quilt for a doll’s bed at age 10, but didn’t sew another quilt for many years. About 20 years ago, a friend reconnected her with quilting and she fell in love with the process. She has sewn many quilts since then both bed size and wall hangings. Most recently she has become addicted to English Paper Piecing (EPP) and has hand sewn two “La Passacaglia” quilts, each with over 3000 pieces.
On a more personal note she has four children and seven grandchildren, with another due in April. She resides in Bowling Green and is retired from The Montessori School of Bowling Green where she worked for over twenty years in Administration.
She will be providing a Power Point presentation on Bali and the batik process.
