Upcoming HCQG programs and workshops are:
April 17 – Program – Curves is NOT a dirty word
This presentation is a short history of my prize winning quilts and how blocks such as the New York Beauty and other curved piece blocks have influenced my work. Includes a PowerPoint presentation of the last 200+ years of curved blocks and how they got their names.
I hope to spread my love of quilting to all who will listen and take time to look at my work. I consider myself a traditional quilter. I like to take traditional blocks and create something new and unique. When I teach classes I want to impart my love of quilting and show others it only looks hard. I break everything down to basic steps that even a beginner can do. I want people to leave my class saying “Wow, I did not know I could do that!” My philosphy is “Quilting should be fun, not hard”.
April 18 – 9:30 am – Workshop – Glorified Nine-Patch with a Twist
This is the perfect class for those who have been afraid of curves. I take the fear out of piecing curves using only three pins and my unique pinning technique. This is a fast block to put together and has many design possibilities.
You will also learn the best way to use templates and a fast on-point construction. Instructions on creating this unique binding technique is included. You will impress everyone after you make this quilt!
The templates come in 3 sizes: 4″, 6″, or 9″. Workshop fee is based on the 9″ size which is what will be used in class.
Kit fee of $30 is required for the class and includes acrylic templates, seam guide, handouts, and pattern.
Full day – Intermediate to advanced quilter.
