Kathy Cook Bio

Kathy is a modern quilter and VP of the Bloomington Normal Modern Quilt Guild. Her quilting adventure began in 2013 after dabbling in all kinds of creative pursuits. When she found modern quilting she was hooked!

Her quilts are mostly improv and she uses solid fabric to create them. She enjoys exploring negative space and using bold colors in her work. Inspiration often comes from architecture and shapes she sees in nature. The freedom of expression she finds in using fabric keeps her endlessly occupied!

A Message from our President

The past year has been quite the bumpy ride and we as a team have tried our best to keep all of our members informed and engaged as we have navigated the uncertainties of the Covid crisis and lockdown. Zoom has become the new norm in so many aspects of our lives and we crave the day when we are once again able to safely gather and meet in person inside a building.

At this time we are still planning on Zoom meetings for the foreseeable future and maybe parking lot gatherings once the weather and daylight make it a viable option.  We will definitely keep you in the loop via email, Facebook and here on the POP website.

I am looking forward to an exciting year as we move forward together in artistry and community.

Stay safe, wear a mask and keep stitching!  Sharon Thomsen
