You see, last year I was super busy working on a huge secret project, and it is coming out right before Quilt Walk!!! I am so excited to share that I wrote a Book!!!! My book is Irish Chain Quilts: Contemporary Twists on a Classic Design and I get to teach from it at Quilt Walk!!! I am so excited!!!
The first class I will be teaching is End of the Rainbow and yup, it's my cover quilt ;) The class will be Thursday morning from 8:30 - 11:30. If I had to pick a favorite quilt in my book it would be this one. And the reason it is so special to me is because it was made with scraps from almost every quilt I have made. When I look at it I see my first ever quilt, my first tutorial quilt, my first pattern quilt, my first published quilt, ect. ect. ect. ;) So for me, it also doubles as a memory quilt!! This quilt is so much fun to put together and like I said, is a fabulous scrap buster!!! So, ready to bust scraps and make memories . . . then this is the class for you.
The second class I will be teaching is Daisy Chain and it will be held Thursday Afternoon from 2:00 -5:00. I am so excited to be teaching this class!! I think applique tends to scare people away before they have given it a try, but take this class and you will see just how easy, fun, and totally addicting it is ;) We will be doing raw edge applique and I will be teaching 2 methods for it ;) So if you have shyed away from Applique in the past because you just weren't sure . . . this is the class for you. You are going to love it!!!!
My final class is on Friday Morning from 8:30 - 11:30 am and it is called Back to Basics. I had so much fun designing this quilt and was ecstatic when it came together and turned out even better than I had hoped. It won 3rd place in the Modern Quilt Guild Challenge last year and has hung in 2 juried shows, and is coming back from hanging at Quilt Con right now ;) But what I really love about this quilt is that it teaches all of the Basics ;) You will learn fast methods for making Half Square Triangles and Flying Geese and then see those basics transform into this amazing geometric design. I hope to see you in this class, we are going to learn so much and have a great time doing it!
I am so looking forward to Quilt Walk!!! I hope to see you all there ;)
