Quilting a Modern Quilt Class on May 3rd

Donna Lee has designed a very simple pieced wall quilt top with a lot of negative space specifically for our guild so the top can be pieced quickly in order to get to the QUILTING by mid-day. This simple pattern enables her to be able to teach some specific modern quilt techniques in a short period of time. She will give instruction in choosing fabrics, spacing blocks, use of negative vs. positive space and choosing modern quilting designs. A variety of designs will be discussed. Come learn some new techniques and designs.
