August 2021

Monday, Aug 16th – (Hilliard Church of the Nazarene) Our speaker will be Molly Dodd from Art Quilts by Molly Todd.  Her love of children’s original artwork and a lifelong passion for fabric combine to allow her personal expression and creativity.  Upon retirement, Molly was led to become a Quilt Artist through a series of unlikely events.   Retirement has given her the time to translate children’s original artwork into quilt legacies.  Her paying customers allow her to create gift quilts to honor children who have passed away, as well as, for critically ill children at Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Ohio.  She is honored to be associated with these strong families and very brave children.  Molly has authored the first book about her work.  “Threads of Life” which she will have available for $10 CASH at the meeting. To see examples of her work, check out her website https://www.artquiltsbymollytodd.com/
