    The log cabin block is so very versatile, we will use that as the basis for creating linear abstract art quilts. Start with a painting or photograph, crop that to a strong personal composition, overlay a grid, this can be an even grid, an uneven grid, curved or random grid, this linear drawing is laid over the inspiration photo or painting to become the map. Then log cabins made up of the colors found in each unit of the grid will be constructed and then put together to make the quilt. Emphasis on composition, variety, color, value and visual pathways.


    Registration opens October 6th, 2017


    The fee for this two-day class is $80 for guild members.

    If you are the type of machine quilter who strives for perfection yet cannot take the time to create fine designs, look to the wonderful pattern flexibility of the Terry Twist to give you the flawless results you want.

     Even if we practiced, practiced, practiced we are not computers, so take advantage of this smart asymmetrical continuous-line technique. It delivers just the right block, border, and sashing designs from half inch to large overall designs effortlessly.

     Because it is free-motion friendly your bobbles and wobbles disappear. The eye will never catch them, as you use this one simple shape to create endless designs. You can stitch charming patterns by adding your favorite “go to” shapes including feathers, leaves, flowers and more or simple textures for quick work of large areas.

    Registrations begins on November 5th, 2017

    There is no doubt that feathers define the quilt top and feathering defines the quilter.  We will learn to make the feather on straight spines, undulating spines, and using a feather stencil.

    After this class you will be able to look at an area and know that the feathers will fit the area, coordinate with the quilt top and other patterns used. Plus have the confidence in your new practiced skill with Sally's effortless and clever technique. (This is Sally's No. 1 Class)

    Two powerful words that can push the boundaries of your work and increase creative courage are "What if?" I took the artist's journey from traditional quilts to improvisation and self-expression. You can do it, too! Ask yourself "what if?" and experiment and you're off on a creative adventure!
