Topic: ”Trunk Show – Flying Colors”


timnatarrIf you love fun, colorful quilts, this program is sure to delight! During this trunk show, Timna leads the audience down the path of her quilting journey. She talks about her design and color choices, as well as the personal stories behind the quilts.

She explains, “My work is about color and small compositions. Each block in a quilt is made as its own element, independent of the other blocks. After all of the blocks are constructed, my goal is to arrange the small compositions to play off each other and work together to create a larger whole. What keeps me engaged is watching how the project changes and transforms with the addition of each color and texture.tarrYolkMusic


“The resulting quilts are contemporary works, set in this time and place, which reference the rich tradition of quilt making.”

 Timna comes from a long line of quilters but did not begin quilting until she completed a degree in art history. She bought her first longarm in 2001 and started quilting client quilts shortly thereafter. In the years since, she has custom designed and quilted thousands of quilts. Her own nationally award-winning quilts have been seen in numerous exhibits, magazines, and books. She is in-demand as a speaker and teacher throughout the northeastern United States and is a member of her local guilds, Hands Across the Valley Quilters Guild and the Northampton Modern Quilt Guild.
