Mid-Century Modern Quilts

Published in Lectures

The 1950s through 1970s produced some fabulous design that still remains current today, but did mid-century modern styles influence quilting? While pointing to a few quilt artists who did work in a MCM style during the period, this lecture will address why there weren’t more of them, and how I look to other areas of mid-century design to bring the flavor of this exciting period to my quilts.

Fabric Outside the Lines

Published in Lectures

Designer lines of fabric make it easy to match fabric, but sticking within a collection makes for “matchy-matchy” quilts. Breathe new life into your quilts by looking at fabrics in new ways: not just as a fill-in-the-blanks paint palette, but as inspiring collage elements. I’ll show you how to put the fabric collector inside us all to good use to build your own custom “collections” of fabric.

Appliqué Isn't a Four-Letter Word

Published in Lectures

Appliqué has unjustly earned a reputation as “the ‘A’ word,” a fussy, time-consuming technique that many quilters avoid like a plague. But there’s lots to love about appliqué, and it really isn’t scary! The lecture takes the intimidation out of appliqué and shows the wonderful possibilities it adds to quiltmaking.
