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.

Pickle Dish Quilt:  The Pickle Dish quilt is a variation of the Double Wedding Ring. It is also referred to as Indian Wedding Ring. There are a variety of techniques in making this pattern. The pointed arcs will be paper pieced using freezer paper. This method leaves no paper to tear from the seams. You’ll also learn curved piecing. It’s an interesting quilt made traditional or with batiks. 

Workshop Pre-Work:  There is no pattern required.  Please check supply list for pre-cutting instructions.
