What's new! June 30 2017, 0 Comments

 

 

I've had many emails recently looking for class spots for my double wedding ring classes. Many fill very quickly, But I've just updated my list to show where I have a few spots left for classes in 2018!  This list includes BRAND NEW CLASSES from my up coming NEW BOOK, MODERN QUILT MAGIC!  This is going to be fun people! Don't miss your opportunity to get in on these early classes! Have you pre-ordered your autographed copy at my website??

 

 Looking for a class? These spots are filling fast!

Upcoming classes!

Currently there are 3 new Class versions of quilts from my new book.
These are PARTIAL seam quilts, Super fun and not like anything you've pieced before.
They look complicated, but are quite fun to learn, and not hard, yet another patience builder! 
Once class I teach as a Herringbone technique pillow class.  Both of these locations will have this class.

The book is broken down into class projects, so that you learn the skill in a small manageable size. ( takes the FEAR out of learning something new!)  Once you have the skills you can then go on and build your large quilt without fear! This a appropriate for a 6 hour class.

Another class I am teaching at CRAFT NAPA is This Herringbone Quilt, "At the Crossroads of Modern & Grand"
( These are NOT braid quilts. )

The larger version of the pillow!

and lastly, The Happy Wanderer Quilt Class 5 day Empty Spool workshop

Those of you who think this is strip pieced or log cabined or braid quilt, Look again.

 

NOPE.

 

This quilt builds left and right, on the diagonal to make four giant blocks that make one quilt. based on the concept of the previous herringbone quilts, but taking is a step further...

See? This why you need 5 days to PLAY with me!! Learn these amazing Parlor tricks to make Seemingly difficult quilts when actually they are not hard to do, but, teaches you something NEW!!  Isn't that exciting??

 

MIND BENDING!!! So cool.

 

I'm super excited to share more images from the new book...The first time these quilts will be exhibited is at the Festival Of Quilts in the UK in August!! here's a sneak peek! So if you are at the show, Come to my booth exhibit TG6, and my lectures!

This Amazing quilt "Captivated By Nature" is by Olga Gonzalez-Angulo, from Spain.  I have no words to explain how much I love this quilt. It's quite amazing... Just absorb the photos... check out the detail shots, (and yes is the answer.... All hand cut dots...) Congratulations Olga on your win fo this beautiful quilt.

 

 

 

These are a few others that I quite enjoyed.... "Z is for Zinna, C is for Cosmos" by Kathie Kerler, Portland, OR

 

 "The Elephant in the Quilt Room" by Elizabeth Owens, Defunak Springs, FL

 

 I love this mini quilt so much.... "Copper Pennies" Amy Pabst, Le Roy, WV  

( guessing it's about 24" X24" ?? ) Just elegant, and I love the one bottom right corner... perfect.

 

Mikyung Jang, from South Korea. her quilt is painted surface, and quilted and embroidered/beaded etc... So much to look at, and I love all the color!  I met Mikyung last year at Houston, and that quilt was so different, it's fun tot see more work by her.

 

 

 

I also taught a Double Wedding Ring Class, (and gave demo's & several lectures) and I had exceptional students!  If you are in my Instagram page you will see nearly all for them from class... Here's just a few... It's always inspiring to see what fabrics people bring to class, and then I have to go buy my favorites... Yes, That's who I shop, by looking at other peoples stash!

 

 

 

 

I had some fun with people taking photos at my quilt "A Garden for All Seasons." I may or not have photo bombed a few when they weren't expecting it!

 

This quilt was made using my Large 10" and Small 5" Hexagon templates available at my website vfwquilts.com

 

You may also see at my Website, that Pre-orders are available there, for my new book 
which will arrive late August early Sept!
Please note, if you pre-order, you can NOT combine that book with other items on your order...Please order it on it's own.

 

Thank you!

There will be more info coming shortly, now that I am home! YAY!!

 

I can't wait share this book with you!!
