This is the class to use all those lovely blue and white shibori fabrics you’ve dyed yourself, or use carefully curated blue and white fabrics from your stash.Each participant will develop a simple geometric block design based on unfolded origami shapes, set a theme and create variations, and combine them into the beginning of a fresh and modern mini quilt top.

Quarterly Meeting
Hastings

At our Quarterly Meeting David Owen Hastings joins us for a lecture "Exploring Nature with Paper and Stitch" David says "In this lecture, I talk about my work as a visual artist, and how there are similarities to how I now work as a quilter.This talk starts with a review of my stitched paper artwork, which I have been creating for over 20 years. I give examples of where I get inspiration, and what my process is like. I first print my paper using a monotype technique, then sew many layers of printed paper together with a sewing machine.I then talk about how quilters can find inspiration in the world around us, and how my journey as a maker has taken me from gallery artist into the world of modern quilting. "

More importantly, we will talk the simple things you can do to improve your skills.
