Do you find yourself asking "How Do I Quilt This"? In this presentation/trunk show and workshop, learn practical strategies for how to plan your own quilting design along with the nuts & bolts of walking foot quilting on a domestic sewing machine. The first part of this program will include a presentation and trunk show of Sheri's award-winning quilts. She'll describe how she decides on a quilting plan that will enhance the design of her quilt top, rather than compete with it. From there, she'll review and demonstrate how she prepares for quilting and her tips and tricks for walking foot quilting. Following the demonstration, students will practice their walking foot quilting on small quilt sandwiches. This workshop also includes a group design discussion, a show & tell of one quilt top by each student and a conversation/consultation on how to quilt it with a walking foot. Students will walk away with skills, strategies, inspiration and confidence to complete their quilts using a walking foot. A sewing machine with a walking foot or dual feed foot required. Students should be comfortable with the sewing machine and installing their walking foot/even feed foot.

Have you heard all the rage about Dear Jane? For seasoned and newbie quilters alike, the mention of "Dear Jane" elicits reactions ranging from joy to dismay. Why? The Dear Jane quilt is comprised of 225 patterns in the blocks! There are 169 square blocks and 52 pieced border triangles. The original quilt was made by Jane Stickle in 1863 without a corresponding pattern. Brenda Papadakis, the author of the Dear Jane books brought the quilt to life by drafting the blocks and publishing the book. With the recent 25th Anniversary of the book, "Janiacs," as we call Dear Jane fanatics came out the woodwork to share their love/hate of the project and new quilters were exposed to the meticulous pattern as well. The beauty of the quilt is not only in the blocks itself but the layout and the ability to play with print and color. Join Diane on the Dear Jane journey. She has taught this project for more than 20 years and is a true Janiac. Diane will make this an enjoyable and fun process! Each block requires a different technique and although many require hand sewing, Diane will share techniques to make everything approachable. This a great opportunity to learn new skills and share in community! Classes are themed by technique, so even if you've taken a Dear Jane class previously, this is an opportunity for a refresh and learn new techniques to complete your Dear Jane.

Cost: $ 200.00
