Coming Attractions:

In May, Sandy Landers will conduct a workshop on “made fabric”, based on the book 15 Minutes of Play by Victoria Findlay Wolfe.   Sandy will show us how to piece together scraps of fabric to make a new piece of fabric that can then be used in whatever way we wish to make a quilt block or an entire quilt.

In June, Sue Pritt will be here to do the lecture and workshop on scenic quilts and landscapes which was originally scheduled in November but had to be postponed due to weather.  If you were enrolled in the November workshop and are unable to take the June workshop, you will receive a refund of the class fee.

More and more Guild members are transitioning from traditional quilts to modern quilts.  The characteristics of a modern quilt are described later in this Newsletter. We are planning on having  a few workshops in the future that appeal to both traditional and modern quilters. In October, Heather Kojan will be teaching a workshop on a quilt that can be made to look traditional or modern bases on your selection of fabrics.
