Teaching at QuiltCon!!

I have some super exciting news...I will be teaching at QuiltCon 2019 in Nashville, TN!!

I will be teaching two 3-hour lectures:

Subtracting for Minimalism
Thursday Feb 21st, 9 am-12 pm

Subtracting for minimalism is a combination lecture and hands-on workshop that explores taking away elements from a full quilt design to create a minimalist pattern. The workshop will begin by showing sample quilts made using the subtracting for minimalism technique, then the method will be taught using both computer and hand drawn approaches. Students will practice the method by creating their own hand drawn minimalist quilt designs and then learn how to develop the designs into a plan for an actual quilt. Note: This is a design only course and does not include any sewing.

EQ8 for Beginners

Thursday Feb 21st, 6 pm - 9 pm

Are you new to Electric Quilt 8 and don't know where to start? You can leave your pencil and graph paper behind when you learn the basic functions and explore the versatility of EQ8 with this workshop. Some topics that will be covered include: how to navigate the block and quilt worktables, use library blocks and fabrics, create your own blocks, and build a quilt top with the blocks using different block settings, colors, fabrics, sashing, borders, and more. This is a hands-on computer class and students must bring their own laptop computers with EQ8 already installed.

I was so excited to see my picture with all of the other faculty!

You can find my courses and all of the offerings at QuiltCon on the QuiltCon website under Catalog and Schedule.  Are you planning on attending QuiltCon next year?
