Lecture: Quilting Old Into Art.
Share ideas and inspiration as we explore ways to work with vintage textiles in new and different ways. With our quilting talents we can turn ordinary antique linens and vintage textiles into heirloom pieces. Mary Kerr will be sharing quilts from several collections and giving quilters permission to play. Learn tips and techniques that will allow you to add to your skill set and expand your quilting services. Let us celebrate this twist on quilting that connects our past and present.
Workshop: Twist and Shout
This fast paced workshop encourages participants to showcase vintage quilt top fragments into a contemporary quilt. Vintage blocks are set with a twisted template into an exciting new setting. Students are encouraged to bring their own vintage blocks and fragments or they may purchase a kit of their choice in class. Finished sizes will vary. Enjoy quilts from Mary’s book, Recycled Hexies and become inspired to create your own treasured pieces.
