October 13th Nicholas Turcan

Nicholas Turcan is a multi-talented and very creative individual. His journey into quilting began in 2012 with one quilt. Well, one quilt quickly turned into several which led him
to a job at The Cloth Shop on Granville Island, where his passion for fabrics, quilting and designing patterns only grew. He is now a talented long-arm quilter, who helps his
clients enhance their quilts with his creativity. In addition to long-arm quilting, he has also started to teach free-motion

Quilt as inspired
In this lecture I will summarize my quilting journey and discuss (and show) my favourite quilts! I will share some of the teachable moments that took me from a novice quilter to the artist I am today. For the second half of the talk I really want to discuss how to choose designs and how to create secondary designs from just the quilting. The quilts shown during this portion are samples that I made specifically for this lecture and show you just how creative and versatile this style can be!
