Come In From the Cold for a Journey in Quiltmaking

December 7, 2014

Modern Flower Box

If you are a beginning quilter or are looking to reconnect with your quilting past, I hope you will join me for A Journey in Quilt Making, a 6-week class I will be teaching at the beautiful historic Mayslake Peabody Estate in Oak Brook, Illinois beginning January 6th.

We start at the beginning covering the basics of quilt making but each 2-hour session will also include creative exercises to boost your quilt making skills and expand your creativity.

We will make “Modern Flower Box,” a quilt I designed specifically for this class with the intention that I wanted students to learn how to make a quilt from start to finish – it’s my hope that everyone will walk out of the last class holding their own finished “Modern Flower Box!”

Measuring approximately 33.5″ x 14″ when finished, it is suitable to use as a table runner or wall hanging. The pattern will be provided at the first class; you are welcome to use your own fabrics, or purchase a kit using the fabrics in the sample on the first day of class.
