Laurie Knoll Watercolors and Quilting Black Hawk resident Laurie Knoll has been sewing since she was a child, but most of her quilting was done after moving to Rapid City and joining the Black Hills Quilt Guild about 13 years ago. She took her first watercolor class about 24 years ago, but had done some oil painting even before that. The year she turned 70, Laurie challenged herself to do a drawing, painting, etc. project every day, and filled almost five art journals. She feels that it helped her a great deal in getting the sketch down faster for her paintings. Laurie now spends most of her creative time quilting, but still enjoys both arts. Recently she has been trying to do more painting and meets with a group of friends on Monday afternoons.
