    One Block Wonder by Ray Steeves

    Date: Thursday,  March 25, 2021
    Time 9:00 am - 4:00pm





    One Fabric, One Quilt.  Great adventure in quilting, using one fabric to create a kaleidoscope style quilt.  Bold, obscure and difficult fabrics lend themselves nicely to this fun and different quilt.  Easier than it seems.  No partial or "y" seams in this quilt, just straight stitching.  Selecting your fabric is the most important part of this project.  Panels work wonderfully for this project.  Refer to your book, One Block Wonder for fabric selection hints.

    Color, Contrast & Cohesion
    with Diane Harris, Scrap Bandit

    2 Day Workshop


    The three C’s—Color, Contrast and Cohesion—can make or break your quilt! Learn to control them with practical exercises as you begin a simply pieced scrap quilt. Learn why color is the least important of the three C’s. Discover ways to unify diverse fabrics and wrap your mind around the way value and contrast work together. Get comfortable with making decisions as you go, because that’s what a scrap quilt requires. Once you begin to work in this way, you might not want to go back! Choose from numerous easily pieced designs so you’ll love what you’re making. Patterns are included so there's nothing extra to purchase. Get ready to be inspired!

    Weave That!
     Quilt Background with Peekaboo Flower
    by Jennifer Rapacki

    Create a unique textured background for a small wall quilt that looks pieced but isn’t.  The technique is weaving 1-inch wide raw edge strips of fabric on the diagonal. No piecing required, thus no Y seams.

    The applique is raw edge and a bit of wool batting is used for the trapunto effect in the flower, stem and leaf.

    Cost: $31*

    My Journey into Quilting
    by Joyce Hughes

    A complimentary event as part of your 2021-2022 membership!

    Thursday, November 11, 2021

    10:00 am - 11:00 am

    Come join us for a  very open and inspiring talk about Joyce's journey into quilting and how it led into Art Quilts with Thread Painting.  She'll finish with ideas on how to use panels as Art Quilts.

    Join the many people who leave excited to try something new with their quilting. Joyce’s  primary subject matter will be work with fabric panels. She'll show many “Before and after” Art Quilts.  Many panels are looked at and passed over. Joyce gives ideas about the often asked question: “What do you do with this?”, it’s so big, the colors are dull, etc., etc.  With a little embellishing and/or thread painting on the fabric, it soon becomes a piece of art.

    Learn about panel preparation for a project, the freedom of using thread painting and how layering thread lets you achieve different effects on the quilts. Then, add embellishments of ribbon, markers, paint, crystals, etc., Your panel will be unique and one of a kind
