    Quilt Remix • Heather Kojan

    UFOs, Orphan Blocks, What was I thinking and What to do with it all

    We'll talk about why we have them, ideas for working on them, and when to hold them, when to fold them. We'll look at ideas for working with orphan blocks, including quilt layouts. And then talk about that fabric that we look at, shake our heads and say "what was I thinking?" All this, then a trunk show!

    ABOUT THE PRESENTER

    Heather has been sewing since her teens and quilting for more than 25 years. Her first quilt was an Eleanor Burns Quilt in a Day.

    She says, "Since I had a king sized bed, it made sense to me to make a king sized quilt. Go big or go home, right? That quilt was in shades of mauve and dusty blue (hello mid '80's!) Let's just say my fabric tastes have changed since then! 

    I consider myself a modern quilter, with traditional roots. I'm the founder of the Baltimore Modern Quilt Guild and love speaking to different groups and sharing the modern aesthetic. I'm foremost a teacher. I teach modern quilting classes in local shops, guilds and shows across the country."

    Heather is a contributing author to the book Classic Modern Quilts and a featured quilter in The Improv Handbook for Modern Quilters by Sherri Lynn Wood, and 50 Little Gifts published by Lucky Spool. You can frequently find her work in Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Magazine, Modern Patchwork Magazine and Curated Quilts Magazine.
