MAY GUILD MEETING
May 21, 2018 – 9:00 Check In
Zion Lutheran Church, 624 Barnett at Sidney Baker, Kerrville, Texas
Visitors are welcome!
On Monday, May 21, RaNae Merrill, an award-winning quilter, author and teacher. will talk about the wonders of spiral quilts. She is passionate about quilting, and even more about teaching quilting. Her unique “spiral” quilts have appeared in national shows and magazines, and her books have already become quilting classics. RaNae found her calling as a professional quilter after previous careers as a pianist, a photographer and a travel writer. Today RaNae designs quilts and patterns, writes quilting books and teaches workshops in the USA and abroad — in both English and Spanish. She still loves to travel! Her website is ranaemerrillquilts.com.
Spirals Boot Camp
In the workshop on May 22, we will learn to design 4 different types of blocks and we will sew two individual blocks. The 2 spirals we do in the morning (Nesting and Baravelle) have one construction technique and the 2 spirals we do in the afternoon (Point-to-Point and Pinwheel) have a different construction technique, so we sew one spiral of each construction technique. There is not a finished project, since the objective of the class is to teach techniques which students can then incorporate into their own design. The 2 blocks can be used in any project they choose to use them. Renae will provide a pattern for hot pads if students want to finish the blocks that way. There is a materials fee of $10.
