Consistency in the Chaos presented by Beth Helfter

1:30 pm, Friday, September 13
Are you overwhelmed by scraps, either physically because you are drowning in them or mentally because the idea of a fully scrappy quilt scares you a little? The key to scrap containment is consistency, and I’ll show you how to make the most of any pattern by augmenting it with JUST the right amount of scrappiness to give it WOW without going over the edge into craziness. Lots of thoughts on what makes a good scrap quilt, why scrap quilts are my favorites, and how one idea can morph into so many others throughout the design process. You’ll never look at a quilt pattern the same way again!

Backstage to Mainstage – Design Techniques with Free Motion Ruler Quilting presented by Geraldine Wilkins
1:30 pm, Saturday, September 14
We can create drama, tell stories, and add surface texture with rulers. Join me on a journey as ruler quilting designs move from backstage to main stage. Let’s view quilts, wall hangings, placemats, and other projects that show rulers as a supporting character in a thread texture story to the star of the quilt design. Learn how each project is part of a journey to successful quilting on a domestic machine.
