Lectures An hour of nothing but quilt talk
Sixty Degrees of Inspiration
Hexagons, Diamonds, Triangles, & More!
Based on Kelly’s book, Hexagons, Diamonds, Triangles, and More: Skill-Building Techniques for 60-Degree Patchwork, this lecture / trunk show is loaded quilts and ideas to spark your creativity! You’ll see a variety of antique and vintage quilts that leant inspiration to Kelly; you’ll become familiar with the shapes (more than hexagons, diamonds, and triangles!) that morphed into the 80+ blocks found in the book; and, you’ll see many quilts born from the blocks.
Layer Cakes, Turnovers, and Jelly Rolls! Oh, My!
The Pleasures and Pitfalls of Working With Fabric Pre-Cuts
Perhaps you’ve eyed all those interesting fabric pre-cuts (Charm Packs, Layer Cakes, Jelly Rolls, Turnovers, Candy Bars, etc.), but said to yourself, “Now, what would I do with THAT ?! ?! ?!” Or, “What’s up with those little pinked edges???” Or, “Is there really enough fabric there to DO anything with?” Sound familiar? Well, Kelly will share tips and tricks for working effectively with these fabric “sweet treats” – and show LOTS of quilts made from the same!
Fussy & Fabulous: Let the Fabric Work FOR You!
Does a striped fabric give you anxiety? Do you see a large-scale, repetitive print and immediately think “border”? Through lots of examples and wonderful quilts and tops, Kelly will show you how to take these challenging and sometimes perplexing fabrics and turn them into blocks that add extraordinary visual and textural depth to your quilts! You may never look at fabric in the same way again!
Quilting is Not a Matter of Life and Death……
It’s More Important Than That!
With humor, personal tales, and “show-and-tell” (of course!), Kelly explores the value and importance of quilt making to her personal sanity and quality of life. I’m sure you can relate!!!
