Our Featured Quilter for the Quilt Show 2020 - Susan Wible
 
Kathryn Susan Wible is our Featured Quilter for the NLQG's 2020 Quilt Show.  Being one of the founding members of the guild, Susan has been instrumental in several aspects of NLQG.

Susan has always been involved in fiber arts.  She started off learning to sew clothes at an early age (thanks to Carolyn Patrick).  She became the Costume Designer for several theaters including college theaters - ULM, Southern West Virginia Community College and Pikeville College; and Monroe, Baton Rouge and Baker Little Theaters.  It was in the Appalachian Mountains when teaching at two local colleges in West Virginia that she began to quilt, along with macrame, and crocheting.

In 1980, she returned to the Monroe area and heard about the formation of a new quilt club.  This began her carerr with NLQG.  She has served our guild in several capacities from Guild President, to Chair of the Quilt Show for multiple years, to designing several donation quilts for the Quilt Shows and to drafting and designing the 100th year memorial Quilt for the Louisiana Baptist Children's Home.  When questioned, Susan said that was probably her favorite quilt project.  She assigned bags with directions and materials for each cottage on the Children's Home campus that reflect the actual houses.  Various members in the Guild were asked to make the blocks and then a committee headed by Susan created the top and hand quilted it.

Voted as Outstanding Chapter member, Susan's ability to encourage and inspire others has been cited as the reason for her receiving this award a number of times.  I, for one, can attest to the fact that without her coaxing, I would have never entered a quilt for others to view in our quilt show.  "If you can't see it (your mistakes on the quilt) from the back of a galloping horse, then it's good enough."  She is a true advocate of our Guild's mission: "To promote good fellowship among persons interested in the art of quilting; to preserve the tradition, culture and history of quilting; and to promote the knowledge and understanding of all aspects of quilting, enjoying and appreciating, rather than judging the works of others."  At the drop of a hat, she will pull over on the side of a road, take the phone call of a distressed quilter and figure out the different yardage needed for a quilt by sketching out a rough draft.  To those who know her well, she is affectionately called "Design Queen."  Her sketch books are a work of art in themselves.

Perhaps the best part of Susan's beautiful quilts is the stories behind them.  Being her sister, I know the fun, the joy, the laughter, and sometimes sadness that lies behind each quilt.  Her favorite color is purple and most guild members know that.  Sometimes she does a quilt outside of her color comfort zone and she will have to argue with quilting friends that she actually made that quilt!  She has become a Kaffe Fassett addict, shaved her head and drank the koolaid.  Actually she has shaved her head, purple hair and all, but that's another story.  Did i mention that fabric talks to her as well as her quilts?  She leaves several quilt stores with multiple yards of a fabric that told her it needed to go home with her.  Her quilts will tell her how big they want to be.  Of course, they don't really talk to her ... do they?

I hope everyone will come to our 2020 Quilt Show and enjoy the array of items that Susan has been getting ready for the show.  Meet her, support her, hear her stories and enjoy the celebration of color and beauty that awaits us.

Written by her sister, Karen Bradford.
