My name is Marge Earl and I am a 32 year resident of Laguna Beach. I learned to sew early in life and began quilting in 2004. I enjoy making quilts for friends, family and my home. I am running out of walls and beds to display my quilts. I also have enjoyed volunteering my time for the past 20 years for many great organizations in Laguna such as Festival of Arts Scholarship Committee, Grapes for Grads Scholarship Fundraising Committee, Laguna Beach High School Scholarship Foundation Committee and the Laguna Beach Community Foundation (LBCF) to name a few. I hosted a number of workshops for nonprofits at the SusiQ for LBCF.
Designed by Kimberly Einmo whose class I took in 2015 at the Road to California Quilt Event in Ontario. Kimberly is known for her “Jelly Roll Quilt Magic”. The quilt was machine pieced and quilted on my long arm with computer assistance. The quilt size is 70” by 70” (NFS)
This Hoopsisters quilt was offered through a monthly class at Moore’s in Mission Viejo. It is designed to be pieced and quilted in an embroidery hoop. I have included it in my three quilt submission as it offers a fun and exciting new quilting path for me with my Brother Luminaire Embroidery machine. The quilt is 72”h by 60” w. (NFS)
Through the Garden Window: Designed by Jan Douglas from Fons & Porter’s Love of Quilting (Jan/Feb 2011). I enjoyed quilting this when I was going through my Asian influence phase. This quilt was machine pieced and quilted on my long arm with computer assistance. The quilt is displayed as three pieces; total measurement is 42” h by 52” w. (NFS)
