On Friday, March 27, her first full-day workshop is titled “Improv Piecing with Dynamic Stripes” which covers strip-piecing and cutting triangles shapes to make a one-of-a-kind dynamic quilt. Good for all levels of quilters. Pictures are below.

On  Saturday, March 28, her second full-day workshop is titled “The Weight of Love”.  The student will cut hexies, half-hexies and triangles using the Hex-N-More ruler and assemble blocks using the Y-seam method. Good for intermediate and above quilters.  Picture is below.
