October Program

October 9, 2019

Marguerita McManus will be presenting her Quilt as You Go Trunk show.

Quilt As You Go: A Progression of Techniques
Trunk Show

How I use quilt as you go to make fat quarter crazy quilts using the decorative stitches of the sewing machine; to finish UFO’s; to make T shirt Quilts; to create modern looking quilts; and to make Layer Cake Quilts.

This trunk show consists of 20+ quilts from all of my books plus several unpublished quilts.

Workshop – October 10, 2019

In this workshop you will be making just four blocks of the quilt but you’ll learn all the tips and shortcuts for making a decoratively stitched quilt as you go quilt. You will learn the crazy piecing process, and how to smooth and layer you blocks. Then you’ll quilt your blocks using any or all of your sewing machine’s gorgeous decorative stitches. You’ll learn the easy block joining process, with lots of tips to make joining easy. The class finishes with a demo of Marguerita’s “pretty corner” trick for  making perfectly turned binding corners (by hand or machine) every time.

Cost:  $40.00
Location: American Lutheran Church 9 am to 4 pm
