Lecture  -  October 11, 2018

"Love of Linens"

My passion in quilting is turning ordinary antique linens into heirloom wholecloth quilts. Each quilt is one-of-a-kind and they all have stories to tell. During my 60 minute trunk show I share tips and techniques on how to create these amazing quilts as well as share their stories and inspiration. The quilts love to be fondled before and after the program!

2-Day Workshop   
Friday & Saturday, Oct 12 - 13, 2018
“Heirloom Feathers & Backgrounds"

2-day workshop - $120 members

One of the best loved quilting designs of all times is the feather, and it seems to be one of the more difficult ones to beautifully quilt.  On the first morning you will start learning how to design and quilt heirloom feathers and how to add personal touches.  Then Cindy will teach you how to create heirloom style backgrounds.  Then you will have the remainder of the day to work on the provided Cherrywood quilt sandwiches.  On the second morning we will cover the Ultimate Borders and the Ultimate Shape.  You will learn how to easily create custom borders and how to make border designs fit.  We will then learn how to create your own quilting designs using The Ultimate Stencils.  You will design and create your own star medallion on the provided 18” fabric square.

Kit Fee $15 Payable at workshop
