May 2017   -  Peggy Gelbrich

Peggy started quilting in the mid 70's. She loves teaching people how to make quilts.  The camaraderie with quilters makes teaching so special for her. Traditional quilts are her favorite; she prefers machine piecing, hand quilting, needle-turn appliqué and crazy quilting.   Peggy finds the challenge of figuring out how to make a complicated looking pattern easier to be great fun, especially when she can share that technique with students. Everyone can make any pattern. It's just that some patterns take a little longer than others.  Peggy has had quilts published in Quilters Newsletter and Fons and Porter’s Love of Quilting magazines. The quilt she made for her son Travis and his wife Sharon was published in "Rose Sampler Supreme" by Rosemary Mahkan. She has been nominated as Teacher of the Year for the Professional Quilter magazine.

"Pine Burr"

1-day workshop  -  $50 members,  $75 non-members (includes membership)

Originating in early 1900 the Pine Burr block is easier to make today using paper piecing to make the burrs. We’ll use a freezer paper method leaving no paper to tear away. There is a gentle curve to add the feathered burrs to the center and a set-in diamond shape to finish the block. Get a start on a beautiful quilt or give it a try making three blocks for a table runner.
