Louise Veverka: Pieces to Pieces, Blocks to Blocks

March 13 @ 2:00 pm

We’re celebrating textiles throughout March at the Horry County Museum! Join us March 13th at 2:00 PM for a presentation by local quilter Louise Veverka.

Ever wonder what those quilters are talking about when they use words like “flimsy”, “sandwich”, “batting and backing”, “sashing and cornerstones”, or even the letters HST, WOF, LOF?

This program is an introduction to quilt blocks and how they are constructed from pieces and the language used by quilters; along with piecing names that go into the standard blocks used to construct the quilt top. Topics will include Half Square Triangles, Strips, or Square in a Square, and what it takes to make a “Log Cabin”, or “Courthouse Steps” or “Cathedral Windows”. Become familiar with the terminology used while quilting and see some of the most used blocks.

An avid quilter, Lou is the current president of Coastal Carolina Quilters, and a member of the Grand Strand Quilters program committee, along with being a member of Myrtle Beach Shorebirds Quilts of Valor. She has been quilting well over four decades and has been a longarmer for about ten years.

Lou is a Navy veteran and learned to sew in high school in New Jersey. She raised a family in Ohio and was owner/president of her own survey company, “L.V. Surveying, Inc.”. She and her husband retired to the Myrtle Beach area in 2021.

The program will be held at the Horry County Museum, located at 805 Main Street, Conway, SC. This event is free and open to the public. For more information, call 843-915-5320 or email hcgmuseum@horrycounty.org. To view a full list of programs, visit our website at www.horrycountymuseum.org.
