Programs

(A program is an informal session after the regular monthly meeting. It is not a workshop. It is member-led, free, informative and fun. To present or lead you don't need to be an expert on the subject but interested in sharing and/or exploring a technique, idea or any subject that can be applied to modern quilting. For more information see the "Presenters Needed Post" updated March 28, 2018 or contact Christine Ravish through Groupworks.)

Past Programs

October 2018 - 
Robin Kriegswill demo Square to Hexagon and show some sample projects. If you are interested in trying this folding method bring already cut squares like a charm pack or layer cake, a cutting mat, ruler, a 6" long or longer and rotary cutter. While the hexagons will not be technically perfect, they can be used for some cool applications.

Pat Hansen -Continuing with Robin's hexagon theme, I will demo the technique for making Kaleidoscope hexagons. At the last meeting we saw Susan Sadi's "One Block Wonder" quilt which is a beautiful, complex design and made with just one novelty fabric I will show you how to select the best fabric to create the blocks. This info is found in the Magic Stack-n-Whack Quilts by Bethany Reynolds and One-Block Wonders by Maxine Rosenthal. 
The hexagon blocks created are fascinating designs and can also be used individually in modern quilts settings. I love them all.
