Christine Barnes – Spumoni

Christine is a contemporary quilt designer/teacher/writer specializing in color theory for quilters . . . and a longtime member of PTQG. She delivers lectures and workshops for guilds, and designs “quilts and wearables for the modern sewist.” She says this about color: “Many quilters think there are no rules when it comes to color, but there are concepts and strategies, and they work—it’s more about practice than talent.” Christine has written three books on color and numerous articles for quilting magazines.

Margaret Boothby – Table Runner

Our Beautiful Table Runner will be made using an old appliqué technique called Broderie Perse where floral images are cut from printed fabric(s) and appliquéd to a plain background to make an arrangement or motif entirely different from the original fabric design. Victorian (and earlier) needlewomen “stretched” their precious chintz florals using Broderie Perse appliqué with stunning results.

This class will use modern large-scale prints in the same way BUT all will be done with fusibles and machine stitching. You will learn to look at your background in a new way to see how you might enhance it by “floating” motifs out into sashings and borders. Quilters of all skill levels should be able to complete the table runner in class while gaining skills useful in other projects.

Mariah Bath – Sashiko

Sashiko, or “little stabs” in Japanese, is a simple running stitch traditionally used to work intricate designs with white thread on indigo fabric. Sashiko today is decorative surface embellishment pulled through one layer only instead of a quilt sandwich.

Robi Holmen – Zipper Box Pouch

Lorna Straka – Scappy Nine Patch

The Disappearing Nine Patch is a simple variation on the traditional nine patch block. It’s very easy to make and looks impressive when finished. I will show different ways to enhance this simple pattern.
