Quilting LIVE!

I am getting so excited! Quilting LIVE is coming to Atlanta.

The event will be in the Galleria in northwest Atlanta. It is only five miles from my house. Now that is something for me personally to get excited about, but even more important to quilters everywhere is the line-up of celebrity quilters who will be teaching workshops and presenting programs at this fantastic event...something very, very exciting for beginning to experienced quilters who will have an array of classes to take, techniques to learn, and quilts to make.

I will be teaching 3 workshops. Free-motion Quilting, Cut the Cake Hexies and Curvy Log Cabin. Here is a sneak peek at the projects. The Curvy Log Cabin workshop offers a Carousel quilt project or a Zen Table Runner. The blocks are made using the same method, but colors, number of blocks and setting can be your choice. Both are made using my new Curvy Log Cabin Trim Tool. Classes fill quickly so don't delay...sign up today.


Zen Table Runners

Since hexagons are so hot right now a workshop using this versatile six-sided shape is a must. I have really gotten into using precuts to make my quilts...with this quilt using 10" precut squares. The separating triangles and borders are cut from white yardage to avoid "Y" seams in the assembly. Learn how to put it all together. Great for beginning and advance quilters. 

Cut The Cake Hexies

You will love the Galleria setting for this event. It is attached to an upscale mall so there are lots of choices for eating, the classrooms well lit and roomy and the many vendors offer a wonderful variety of fabrics, machines and notions to make your quilting experiences the best ever. The quilts on exhibit are top notch and exciting to see. The Galleria is easy to get to and there is plenty of free parking.
