Mixed Technique...It's just like gumbo!
Mix in a little bit of this and a little bit of that and you have made gumbo. What a great way to experiment with different techniques than by using them all in one quilt.
The lecture will feature quilts using applique and piecing in different settings. Showcasing applique in medallion quilts, row quilts, alternate blocks, and in borders gives a quilt many different looks.
Of course, piecing is included in the same way. What a fun way to make a quilt and not be committed to just one method. How boring! A trunk show will include at least two to three dozen quilts that will hopefully inspire your members.

The kaleidoscope block is very doable with the right tools and pressing techniques.
Whether your choice is batiks, jewel tone solids, or even reproductions, with the right combination of light and dark fabric, you will create a colorful "spinning"appearance.
So join us for a day of fun making 7" kaleidoscope blocks.
