Classes


This is a simple bag that is the perfect size with a lot of pizzazz. You can opt to piece the front and back or just piece the front and have a plain back. This is a two part class. In the first class, we will lay out the fabrics and stitch the pieces together and start the quilting process. My mission is to get one of the segments quilted before you leave. The second class, you will have completed your quilting, whether you do both front and back or just the front. We will assemble the bag in class with pocket(s), lining, handles and closure.

"My Journey into Quilting"... is a very open and inspiring talk about how I started in quilting, leading into Art Quilts with Thread Painting, finishing with ideas to use with Panels as Art Quilts. Many people leave very excited to try something new with their quilts. My main subject matter will be working with fabric panels. Showing many “Before and after”…Art Quilts. Exploring how panels will be able to be used on your personal projects. Many panels are looked at and passed over. I often here, “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 the preparation of the Panel for a project, the freedom of using thread painting and showing that layering thread lets you achieve different effects on the quilts. Then, add embellishments of ribbon, markers, paint, crystals, etc., The Panel is now unique and one of a kind.
