COMING THIS MONTH
Join us online for our Guild Meeting with Swan Sheridan as she presents “Color Theory Applied”. This lecture includes a showing of 30 or more quilts and focuses on building and utilizing a color stash in both modern and traditional quilting designs. Zoom presentation.
NOTE - Swan is offering all ACQ members a 20% discount on any purchases from her website from now until Saturday, October 22nd. This discount is valid for any number or amount of purchases made during this time frame. Use code ACQ20 when ordering. Class signups are not included in this offer.
This 6 hour class is taught in two sections. The first 4 hour section is focused on students learning how to fuse a relatively large flower (20 inches), quarter it into sections, pin baste, and applique their flower by exploring the decorative stitches on their machines. Afterwards, students continue working on creating their other 3 flowers.
In the final 2 hour section of the class, students will learn how to trim down their blocks to the right size and assemble them using a variation on the "quilt as you go" method. Zoom presentation.
Be sure to register soon and order your pattern so that you will have it in time for the class. Use code ACQ20 to receive your 20% discount!
UPCOMING PROGRAMS – NOVEMBER AND DECEMBER
We welcome Shelley Cavanna of “Cora’s Quilts” for our online Guild Meeting as she presents “Modern Mosaic Quilts”. Shelley has a passion for intricate, mosaic-inspired quilts and loves creating designs with layer-upon-layer of elements that weave in and out of one another creating depth and movement. Her quilts look complicated, but are easy to make. Join us for her lecture as Shelley shares the story of her design evolution and shows the progression of how she developed her signature mosaic style. Zoom presentation.
Learn Shelley's techniques, tips, and tricks for making these dreamy, mosaic-inspired nine-patch blocks! Use her favorite Stitch + Flip techniques - and your favorite fat quarter bundle - to make a truly stunning quilt ... made simply! This is a 3-hour workshop at half the cost of our regular 6-hour classes. Zoom presentation.
