Class Description

Story Quilts – Diary Pieces that LAST

In this workshop we will be exploring ourselves and those we love. Legacy quilts are wonderful pieces that tell volumes about the women who produce them. You will be telling us about the people, places, or events that have touched you in some way. This is a class that touches the heart and the funny bone.

These quilts tell about you, what and who you love and with sentiments and smiles make the viewer know something special about the artist that they didn’t know before. These quilts are crowd pleasers and often are winners in quilting venues and shows. This class helps you ”think” of events in your past with a positive, happy outlook and offers up many ideas that tell of you and events you remember. This surprises the artist often and lets process take flight as you stretch and learn as you sew. It is both fun and satisfying too.  Come have fun with no stress and lots of laughs!

Mary Lou is a process teacher and with this workshop we work with process, stretching, thought growth, design, colors and how they work with other colors around them, composition and imagination. This class is for the quilter who wants to do something a little more involved (not hard), to develop and stretch and go on the road “less traveled.”

5 Day Class size is limited to 12 students.
