Program - May 17th - Karen K. Stone Trunk Show

Trunk Show

Karen K. Stone

Quilts and their stories, in human context. What judges look for, terrible cat tales, live quilts. Ask me anything.

Karen's Bio:

A quilter since 1986, Karen's inspiration manifests equally of innovation and tradition. Her quilts have won numerous awards, including first prizes in international competitions, and her designs appear frequently in exhibition.

Her Clam Session quilt recived the Master of Innoavative Artistry award at IQA in 2009, and her Indian Orange Peel Quilt was People's Choice at Quilt National'95. Having enjoyed success in design, publication and teaching, she finds no greater satisfaction than in hand-finishing a newly quilted piece, with the possible exception of making someone else's color "challenge" her business.

Karen holds degrees in Piano from Baylor and Indiana Universities, has two beautiful daughters, three horrible cats, and rides her bike from historic Deep Ellum in Dallas. TX.

Workshop - May 16th - English Paper Piecing by Machine I

Cost $40 plus $5 kit fee

(you can right-click the link above if you wish to save to your computer)

Do you love but avoid the traditional one-patch? Handwork is wonderful, but let’s explore an innovative machine technique, useful for any pattern that would be English paper pieced, without compromising the integrity of the original.

We begin with hexagons, then move quickly to a Sunburst star (like in the pictured quilt, simplified for class).

You’ll enjoy having this in your bag of tricks!
