About Peggy: Peggy has been quilting and helping others learn the joy of quilt making for over 40 years. As a quilt teacher, sharing the art of quilt making is her passion. She has taught quilt making across the United States and in Canada teaching at large guild classes, quilting retreats and small private groups in her home. Her teaching style won her a nomination for Quilt Teacher of the Year sponsored by the Professional Quilter.
Peggy loves making traditional quilt patterns look new again with modern fabrics and techniques. She enjoys trying and learning different techniques in the quilt making process, always looking for an easier way to conquer those seemingly intricate patterns.
Originally from Oregon, Peggy spent 22 years in Ketchikan, Alaska with her husband, Ron, raising their three children. With the children grown she and her husband have come back home to Oregon.
Pine Burr: Originating in early 1900 the Pine Burr block is easier to make today using paper piecing to make the burrs. We’ll use a freezer paper method leaving no paper to tear away. There is a gentle curve to add the feathered burrs to the center and a set in diamond shape to finish the block. Get a start on a beautiful quilt or give it a try making three blocks for a table runner.
