A Walk Down Memory Lane

Let me take you back in time through my memories and yours while we explore quilting.   I will show you how many ways there are to express yourself and your memories through quilts.  T-Shirt and clothes quilts are just a few of the examples I will show you in my Trunk Show/Slide Show.  When I am done you will be full of ideas for your own memory quilts.

Making Memories Into Quilt Blocks 
 

For All Levels

In this class you will learn the techniques necessary to make your memory pieces into blocks.  You will not make the quilts but will practice making the blocks themselves. You will learn the techniques needed to modify clothes items so they can be displayed in your quilts.  This includes hats, shirts, and shorts; whatever.  We will also discuss techniques for awards, photos etc. You will learn how to take just about any piece of memorabilia you wish and put it in a quilt or wall hanging. There is some machine sewing involved as you learn to piece items together to make individual quilt blocks but we will not be putting the blocks themselves together into a quilt.
