Sign up now for our 2021 Block of the Month Quilt!
Skill Level: Beginner
January - November 2021

Find your center and passion: take care of yourself!.  

We invite you to join us as we travel the globe through fabric. We will explore global textiles: fibers, weaves, traditional designs, color application & more. You will see samples of and sew with fabrics from around the world. Imagine yourself on the trip of a lifetime as we explore ten geographical locations, many included along the original and modern Silk Road! And all the while, you will gain a higher degree of comfort using and combining fabrics from around the world!

Each month your packet will include fabrics that represent one of ten countries or global regions. (See the picture for an idea of what to expect. Actual fabrics will vary from those pictured.) During each monthly class, Terry will give a brief textiles presentation, including information about fibers, weave, color application, dying process, or the designer and/or region. You will expand your quilting repertoire with detailed instruction on using Robin Ruth's Mariner Compass ruler to create "umbrellas" from each collection. Finally, you will discover (or rediscover) applique techniques and choose the one or ones that work for you.
