Quilting with the Fire of My Foremothers
Trunk Show & Talk (1 hour) – $200
This one-hour lecture and trunk show examines and celebrates the quilting legacy we carry from our foremothers (whether your immediate foremothers were quilters or not). I’ll share my journey and my passion for the relationship between what’s old and what’s new how the old and new exist on a continuum rather than in a vacuum exclusive of one another. Throughout generations, quilt making provided women with platforms for their artistic and political voices, as well as their expressions of love and necessities of utility. We’ll talk about women’s lives, women’s voices, and we will rejoice in our legacies.
“We enjoyed you SO much !! Thank you for the informative talk and showing your beautiful quilts.” ~ Sandy in Douglasville, Georgia
Workshop: 4 hours – $300; 6 hours – $450
We’ll take inspiration from a vintage quilted coverlet made by Eveler Blankenship in Kansas in 1970. These scrappy string kaleidoscope blocks are fun to make and go together quickly. Use up your scraps or cut up assorted fat quarters–it’s up to you! No specialty rulers needed, either!
“It was a great class!” ~ Crystal in Roswell, Georgia
“Lots of fun!” ~ Pat in Stockbridge, Georgia
Workshop: 4 hours – $400; 6 hours – $600
With a vintage quilt as our inspiration, we’ll make a diamonds quilt using strips! This is a technique class–we’ll demystify diagonal piecing. This workshop is geared toward the confident beginner or intermediate quilter. Students use strips from their stash or a jelly roll. Make a little or a lot!
“…thanks so much for your class, it was spot on what I needed to learn to tackle this application.” ~ Mikki in Smyrna, Georgia
Fan Girl: A Crazy Lady
Workshop: 4 hours – $400; 8 hours – $600
With a circa 1910 crazy quilt as our inspiration, we’ll fly through strips of machine applique using simple, quick, and fun methods. Students can use decorative or straight stitches on their machine to create this quilt. This workshop is great for the confident beginner, but is also loads of fun for experienced piecemakers.
