“Successful Fabric Selection For More Dynamic Quilts”

We all know the trick of choosing a “focus fabric” and selecting coordinating fabrics that match the colors in the focus fabric. As Dr Phil says, “How’s that workin’ for ya?” It works fine for a pattern calling for 3 or 4 fabrics, but what if you want to make a quilt with fat quarters or scraps? What if you want your quilt to look more dimensional? This lecture includes many practical pearls you can take home and use to take your quilts to the next level.

2016 – 2017 Challenge Quilt – Houses

The theme for this year’s quilt challenge is Houses.  This could be any type of house:  a depiction of your childhood house, current house, a dream house, fairy tale house, whimsical house, or any type of house you choose to depict.  Use any techniques and embellishments you’d like.  The only restriction for this challenge is the perimeter of all 4 sides must not be greater than 100″.  Our Challenge quilts will be shared at the June 2017 meeting.
