CANCELED: Mini-Morning Workshop – Tote bag. Click HERE for supply list. 9:30-11:30 a.m., Bethesda Covenant Church. We’ll do the tote bag in February.

Programs – Bill Kerr (website)
Weeks Ringle and Bill Kerr are professional quiltmakers and co-founders of Modern Quilt Studio, a design studio in Oak Park, Illinois. Having written the first book on Modern Quilting, Bill and Weeks are pioneers of the Modern Quilt Movement. Weeks made her first modern quilt in 1987 to rethink the possibilities of the American quilt as being expressive of the time in which we live. Having sewn since he was 8, Bill began designing and making modern quilts in 1995.

1:00: Details Matter
Bindings, thread selection, batting loft, block size-such details can make or break a piece. Learn how designers in a wide variety of disciplines, from product design to landscape architecture to quilting, refine details to make compelling work.

7:00: Color in a Supporting Role
Using examples of our own work as well as images of art, sculpture, architecture, garden design, and product and package design, we will explain the role of color in design. We will show how great quilts, ranging from traditional to contemporary, use color to support a “Big Idea” or design intention.


Saturday, January 13th:
