An eclectic gathering of quilts from my studio. Some made by myself. Some Vintage. Some Traditional. Some Art. Something for everyone. Because after all there is enough fabric in the studio to make both Art and Traditional Quilts.
An exciting evening with lots of amazing quilts and table runners made using some of the many ways to work with precuts. How many ways can you work with precuts?
Make your Lemoyne stars twinkle by using the Rapid Fire Lemoyne Star tool from Studio 180 Design. Stop cutting out odd shapes with angles that never quite match up and eliminate those bulky center spots where multiple seams intersect. You will be able to make a block as small as 3” with the same precision as a 12” block.
Come see some of the different creations that can be made using the Rapid Fire Lemoyne Star tool from Studio 180 Design. The concept is to make the basic unit slightly oversized so that you can trim it to the exact measurements you need without losing any points.
Valli Schiller is an enthusiastic machine stitcher who loves experimenting with innovative techniques and sharing them with others. Valli’s quilts have been exhibited internationally and she has been featured in many publications.
Double-points put a contemporary spin on this long-time favorite and eliminate the need for a traditional appliquéd circle in the center! Learn Susan Cleveland's method to assemble arcs and rings and turn the points. Follow her pattern or design your own Dresden in class!
Location change: This meeting will be held at Faith Lutheran Church, 680 W. Deerpath Rd, Lake Forest, Illinois.
Enjoy an entertaining evening with Susan Cleveland. Her presentation, My Eclectic Quilt Pageant, will give us insight into the way she takes show pieces to new levels and adds charm to simple pieces.
In Cheryl Sleboda's presentation, Working Weekly – “Staying Inspired” - How small quilts helped me find my artistic voice, she will share with us her year long journey of finding her artistic voice from comic books to fiber artist. She will show us how working weekly and working small can help us define our artistic visions and make us better quilters.
Learn Lenore Crawford's fusing technique while beginning a beautiful fused art quilt using one of her patterns. Lenore will demonstrate how she uses fabric paint to increase the realism. No sewing is done in this workshop.
