You’ll be transported to a tiny island — just 13 acres — in the central Philippines as you enjoy images and stories of the colorful quilts and the more than 100 quiltmakers of Caohagan Island. You’ll see photos of more than 50 of these handmade, one-of-a-kind quilts plus be introduced to the unique techniques developed by these quiltmakers whose tools are simply fabric and scissors, needle and thread. I spent more than a month on the island, quilted with the residents, went fabric shopping with them on nearby Cebu Island, and snorkeled the reef that surrounds Caohagan. Those who view the quilts come away smiling, inspired by the creativity of these women and men.
We will meet in-person at the Birmingham Unitarian Church and simulcast via Zoom. Guests are welcome to join us for this fascinating lecture either in-person or via Zoom for a $10 guest fee. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to register.
I designed this quilt as an assignment for a color class I took at City Quilter in New York City. The assignment was to make a quilt in three colors I really don’t like. That meant working with avocado green, harvest gold and hot pink. At the same time, I was preparing to teach a class on in-setting circles and needed to make a class sample.
There wasn’t time to make two quilts, so I combined the tasks and came up with this quilt. In the first part of the class, you’ll first piece the background learning several ways to make the ¼” strips. In the second part of the class, you’ll learn to inset the circles.
You don’t have to work in colors you don’t like but if you want to add the challenge, feel free to do so. The pattern for the quilt is included in the class fee.
Members are invited to join us in celebrating a fantastic year! More details will follow!
