How do I quilt this?
The quilting process plays a very important role in the overall appearance and success of any quilt. Oftentimes, we are uninspired or become “in a rut” when it comes to deciding how a quilt should be quilted. Join Gina Perkes, as she shares with you the steps she takes when deciding on a quilting path to take. You will discover how to determine the style and function of every quilt and how to design and plan quilting to enhance each unique quilt. This class will feature a power point presentation with many photo samples of quilts and recommendations for quilting ideas in each. Many different styles of quilts will be covered: ranging from modern to traditional, custom to edge to edge. There will be plenty of opportunities for questions and students are encouraged to bring photographs of quilts they would like design input for.
- Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy projects. Choose from two projects you can complete in just an hour. 6:00-7:00 p.m. Details to come. Low cost, fun, and simple.

Don’t rush out, stay and sew as long as you’d like – Quilt til you wilt.
