Stars, Squares and Fiber Art
Last week I shared the story of Anne’s Serendipity Stars.
Many people asked me how they could obtain a copy of the most recent issue of American Quilter magazine. I didn’t have an answer, so I emailed Anne. Here’s her response:
“Any place that has quilt magazines might still have a copy. I only have a couple of copies, but Ben Franklin in Oconomowoc has 20 copies that they are going to sell during their Quilt Fest weekend in October. I have made a new gmail account just in case anyone wants to ask me questions, it’s firstname.lastname@example.org. I have directions that can be emailed, not thinking about charging anything so I don’t have to worry about income, taxes etc. Will suggest that anyone that wants the directions could just make a little donation to their local animal shelter if they want, it isn’t required though.”
What a generous offer. So, if you are interested in more information about Anne’s star technique – feel free to email her 😀 . She said she might be a little slow to respond because of her busy schedule, but she will try to check that email account in a timely fashion.
The class lists are out for the Fall semester at Waukesha County Technical College. I’ll be teaching 3 all day project workshops:
Quilting – Layered Squares; Friday, September 21st; 9-2:30
Combine simple piecing, diagonal cutting and clever block construction to make this crib/lap-sized quilt with a three-dimensional look.
Quilting – Pieceful Stars; Friday, October 26; 9 – 2:30
Get the look of a Lone Star style medallion, without all the fussy piecing. We will strip piece simple blocks and then cut diamond shapes from them to create a star that is much simpler than it looks!
Quilting – Beginning Fiber Art; Saturday, November 17; 9-2:30
Are you a traditional quilter who is interested in making an art quilt? Come and discover your inner creative child by playing with simple fusing techniques, fabric, color and design. Students will not be creating the pictured quilt, but their own unique work of art. (This class was formerly titled “Parallelisms”)
We also have a new quilting instructor starting in the Fall. Welcome Nan Feurer! She’ll be teaching 2 classes. Here are the titles and descriptions:
Quilting For Beginners – Anyone can quilt! Learn several quilt blocks and techniques to create a beautiful heirloom.
Quilting – T-shirts – Learn to use a “quilt-as-you-go” technique to transform adult and child t-shirts into a beautiful quilt full of great memories.
To register for a class go to: http://www.wctc.edu/, in the course search box choose Fall 2018 and type “quilt” in the “course title/subject” box, then click on “submit”. All of the quilting classes will appear and you can open the description/photo of each class by clicking on it’s title.
If you’ve never signed up for a class before, instructions can be found in the link just below the picture of the college.
