Sept 2019—Suzi Parron, Barn Quilt Trail 

Join us on Wednesday 9/4 to find out how a lady who is from a state that has very few barns ended up  spending three years studying barn quilts.  Come back on Thursday for a “paint your own” Barn Quilt.  


October 2nd & 3rd 2019—Sue Heinz, Kismet Quilting, LLC 

Sue’s lecture—You’ve Got a Friend Named Elmer
As ‘piecers’ we all want to achieve PERFECTLY aligned seams and matched stripes, in addition to flat, square and accurately sized blocks. In this lecture, Sue will guarantee it. Plus, she will show you how to eliminate bias stretch, create curved INSIDE borders and sew pieced circles, all without the need for pins, clips or gadgets. 

Her Workshop—Fill Harmonics
Create a symphony of harmonious background designs that group well together on any type of quilt – or use just one for a dramatic textural effect. You’ll learn how to draw an array of free-motion and grid pattern backgrounds while Sue demonstrates with step-by-step illustrations and how-to hints. Skill Level: Open to all skill levels.


Nov 2019—Catherine Cureton, Running Doe Quilts 

Catherine is a young pattern designer and quilter from Cedar Park, TX.  She will be our guest on Nov 6th and 7th where she will be displaying her contemporary and traditional quilt designs with a trunk show that shows off approximately 40 of her patterns that are published by Villa Rose Designs.  

Ever want to design your on pattern? Then join us in our Thursday where we will do just that in Catherine’s Pattern Design Workshop. 

 


On December 4th, we will have a short business meeting and our traditional WAQG Christmas Party!
