It may have been a grey, dreary cold day in Duluth but members of the Lake Superior Modern Quilt Guild grabbed their brightest quilts, bundled up, and gathered for a walkabout around Duluth's iconic Aerial Lift Bridge!
Check out the Duluth News Tribune article on the colorful walkabout:

Scott Lunt aka 'Starfire' has been a fixture and founder of the flourishing music scene in Duluth. In 2014 he visited McTavish Quilt Studio with his mother and ended up getting hooked himself. Since that visit he has made nearly a quilt a month. He draws from the fabric of Duluth-both figuratively and literally. Taking inspiration from the built environment and music scene in which he is enmeshed. Lunt sees the process of cutting, piecing, working with color and texture is something akin to conjuring spells and the quilts produced as evidence of his magic.
Hosted by Scott Lunt. “Join me at the UWS Kruk Gallery for the opening of my solo quilt show featuring works spanning 20 years. The opening reception is April 4th from 5-7PM and the show will hang through the month.” … “I’m pleased to announce that The Hopper Shuttle will be running between The Cedar Lounge and the Kruk Gallery from 5-7:30 on the day of the show.”
**This activity is made possible in part by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Arrowhead Regional Arts Council, thanks to appropriations from The McKnight Foundation and the Minnesota State Legislature’s general and arts and cultural heritage funds.
The Lake Superior Modern Quilt Guild meets the
2nd Thursday each month from 6pm-8pm at
