Instructor: Cindy Brick
Do you love old quilts…but feel at an absolute loss trying to decide their age and pattern names? Maybe you wonder whether to finish your old tops and blocks into quilt. Or perhaps you have an old piece you’d like to repair or restore. This class will help you learn quick, easy guidelines to dating quilts and other textiles by their style, fabrics, construction and patterns. We’ll also discuss and demonstrate cleaning and repair/restoration methods that anyone, with care, can do. Bring your old quilts, tops and blocks to show; you’ll view samples from a collection of antique textiles dating from 1820 to present.
Instructor: Martha Etheridge
Make a table topper or wall hanging while learning how to use the 60 degree ruler to shake up your log cabin quilts. Use triangle and diamond shapes to create your own stunning table topper, then progress to other projects in the book or of your own creation. Martha will show you how to cut the necessary pieces and put them together. You will learn how to use the book to continue to expand your journey with non-typical log cabin designs.
