The Guild has an excellent line up of classes to offer its members in 2015-16 and participation should be affordable and encouraged. Participation supports many of the purposes of the Guild, including developing new quiltmaking techniques, sharing skills and knowledge, and providing instruction. We are in a healthy financial position to experiment with this proposal.

Traditional pieced units—Half-Square Triangles, Drunkard’s Path, Triangle in a Square, and more—are the building blocks for this modern alphabet sampler. Students may work towards the 26-block quilt (49" × 58") or a runner/banner spelling out a word or name. We’ll cover all the main piecing techniques in the workshop so you’ll be able to finish the remaining blocks confidently. We’ll also look at color choices to create the translucent effects seen in the sample quilt. Click here for a PDF with more pictures and details about Kevin’s workshop, including a supply list.
