Teacher: Froncie Quinn
Based on the concept of the four inch blocks a mini-sampler quilt will be designed from an array of four inch block patterns provided for the students and which have been miniaturized from the antique quilts. The sampler will be planned and begun under teacher supervision, but designed by each student. A booklet of mini-pattern blocks and templates is the basis for each project. Basic skills will be first reviewed and then everyone will explore and create! It’s a lot of fun!
Froncie’s love is antique museum quilts. She create reproduction museum quilt patterns that are fully licensed by the Shelburne Museum, Old Sturbridge Village, Vermont Quilt Festival, and Lancaster Quilt & Textile Museum. She is from New Hampshire.
Zero to Sixty: Put the Pedal to the Medal
NBQA members Billie Bunnewith and Kassie Randall are presenting another workshop in their always popular series:
Are you bored with sewing squares and rectangles? Why not try angles! In this workshop you will learn techniques for constructing multiple different blocks with 60 degree triangles and no Y seams. Mix and match the blocks of your choice to create a colorful sampler quilt. Or, if you prefer, select only one or two block designs to complete your project. Different layout options for the blocks will also be presented
