2017 Featured Quilters

Anchorage Log Cabin Quilters Guild was chartered in 1983. Ramona Chinn was the first president. This year our Featured Quilters are the five charter members who remain in Anchorage: Ramona Chinn, Doris Rhodes, Louise Bremner, Lynne Wince, and Pat Sims. Thanks to Marilyn Galbraith for interviewing and writing the information about each of the quilters.

World traveler Doris Rhodes has traveled with quilt groups visiting foreign quilt shows for many years.  Doris has enjoyed making bed quilts by machine and hand quilting them.  Her favorite quilt is a beautiful scrap Tepee Quilt.

Hand Quilter, Louise Bremner became inspired with quilting when she saw a quilt display in 1979. She got the kit and made the quilt. Louise is well known for her beautiful large and hand quilted small quilts.

Traditional Quilter Lynne Wince enjoys making pieced and applique quilts in pastel colors. Lynne started quilting in the 70’s at Woodland Park Presbyterian Church. At that time blue was a favorite quilt color.  She has received many ribbons at the Alaska State Fair for her outstanding quilts. She recently finished a beautiful quilt for a Great Grandchild.

Pat Sims – “My love of sewing found a good match with ALCQ! Thanks to all for years of friendship!”

Ramona–"I was the first president of the Anchorage Log Cabin Quilters when it organized under 501(c)(3) organization.  I was the Alaska first runner up in the national contest in celebration of the Statue of Liberty.  I have had my work published in numerous books and publications.  I love color and the challenge of quilts with as many different fabrics as possible.  All my quilts are appliqu├ęd or pieced and quilted by hand.
