I’m honored to have been selected as part of the 2013 faculty for the National Quilt Museum‘s Workshop Series, and I would like to personally invite YOU to join me for a very special Quilt Retreat at the National Quilt Museum in Paducah, Kentucky!
Please join me for
Modular Quilting Retreat
Every Trick in the Book for Using Precuts!
September 12 – 14, 2013
Pre-cut fabric packs are the hottest trend in quilt making today and quilters everywhere just can¹t resist these delectable textile treats! But what do you do with them? This fun-filled, technique-packed workshop is the perfect answer to turn all those enticing 2½” strips, 10” squares and charm packs into a fabulous quilt. Let me introduce you to the exciting and wonderful world I call “Modular Quilting, which is “a system of simple, pieced units used to create new blocks, settings or complex-looking designs.”
Using squares, rectangles, triangles, diamonds and a myriad of basic ‘building block’ units, I will show you how to efficiently piece a wide range of blocks in various sizes. I’ll teach you dozens of tips and tricks for using specialty rulers and traditional methods to their best advantage with no math, no wasted fabric, and best of all, no stress! Featuring fabulous techniques from my newest release, Precut Bonanza, I will share every trick in the book for precision piecing and lovely machine appliqué to create beautiful blocks and help you unlock your inner design diva. I think you’ll enjoy my ever-encouraging, upbeat, energetic (and humorous) teaching style. My personal goal is to give you tons of hands-on, personal attention while providing you with lots of options and ideas to stretch your creative muscles. Please plan to join me for a fun-filled retreat and create your own stunning, unique sampler quilt and leave feeling like a precuts pro!
