Signed in as:
A nonprofit quilt guild providing education, information & inspiration to those who wish to preserve the heritage of quilting
You’ll be transported to a tiny island — just 13 acres — in the central Philippines as you enjoy images and stories of the colorful quilts and the more than 100 quiltmakers of Caohagan Island. You’ll see photos of more than 50 of these handmade, one-of-a-kind quilts plus be introduced to the unique techniques developed by these quiltmakers whose tools are simply fabric and scissors, needle and thread. I spent more than a month on the island, quilted with the residents, went fabric shopping with them on nearby Cebu Island, and snorkeled the reef that surrounds Caohagan. Those who view the quilts come away smiling, inspired by the creativity of these women and men.
The presenter asks that anyone not vaccinated and boosted please wear a mask while attending the workshop and/or lecture.
Even the quilt police agree there is no room for them in this class, in which you’ll throw away the rules and let loose. The class does not require a ruler. It is a perfect class for you if you like to improvise or if you’re finding you’re stuck in the same-old, same-old quilting patterns. There’s nothing conventional here. Sign up for fun and to de-stress.
This improvisational cutting and piecing technique created by Pam Rocco, formerly a columnist for Quilters Newsletter, is fun and quick. Each student’s quilt will be a unique creation using any fabrics of their choosing. Cutting out this quilt is simple. You’ll free- hand rotary cut 1”-3” wide strips with gentle curves without using rulers. Then you’ll stitch the strips together with no pinning. The end result is a high energy quilt that you can hang or drape over a couch or chair. It can also be used as a table or bed runner. The choice is yours!
Registration deadline: April 18th. The presenter asks that anyone not vaccinated and boosted please wear a mask while attending the workshop and/or lecture.
