"Murphy's Law: Lessons Learned Along the Way"

Kick off the New Year with inspiration from guild member Cheryl Murphy! Many of you may have participated in the virtual mystery quilt project last year and learned Cheryl’s methods for paper piecing with beautiful results!! Join us on Zoom on Thursday, January 13, 2022 for our Guild Meeting with more fun and to see some other wonderful quilts from Cheryl’s collection.

Coming in February:

February Guest Speaker - Julia Graves, Special Occasion Quilts, LLC.

"Memory Quilts and Personalizing Quilts"

Every quilt you make is special for the recipient.  You choose colors and designs that you think they will enjoy.  ZOOM with us on February 10, 2022 to learn some additional ideas about how to make a unique quilt for a special person and tips on how to achieve the results you want.  Julia Graves will talk about incorporating special fabrics, t-shirts, handkerchiefs, ties, photographs, writing, signatures, individual blocks and designing art quilts.  Her lecture will include a trunk show illustrating many of her techniques.  Check out her website at where you can visit links to her Facebook pages and Instagram feeds, see individual classes she offers, and sign up for her newsletter!

February Workshop - Tricks with Transparency

Play with fabric and learn the tricks to create transparency effects in this simple to piece, but entertaining-to-look-at quilt!  Learn color principles that you will carry into many of your future quilts to create depth and interest.  The workshop will be split over two days, running from 9:00 - 11:30 AM both Friday February 11 and Saturday February 12th. Cost is $37 per guild member, plus a $8 pattern fee.  Non-guild members, cost is $47 per person, plus $8 pattern fee.  Give yourself an early Valentine's present by joining us for this fun workshop!  To enroll, please complete the new online enrollment form!
