Quiltcon 2019 classes

Blog friends! Tomorrow is QuiltCon 2019 registration day for MQG members, and I wanted to show you some of the classes and lectures that I’ll be leading in Nashville next February. It seems far away, but I love that there will be something to look forward to when the winter is doing its dreary thing here in the American northeast.

I’m teaching Planned and Unplanned Improv (the same class as QuiltCon 2018) on Thursday and Friday evenings. It will be a fantastic way to process the inspiration of the show, and my favorite part is helping each student start an improv project that has just the right amount of improvisation for them. Look for IMP012 and IMP013 in the class catalog.

Next on my QuiltCon 2019 itinerary is Fingerprint Improv Curves on Saturday evening. This class is a super fun and freeing process exploring color, line, and how improv curves can interact in an infinite number of ways. It’s in the catalog as PIE202.

If you’re looking for a way to take your QuiltCon show inspiration home to your guild or bee, join me on Sunday morning to talk about designing and making group quilts (the code is LEC21). Shout out to the Newbies 2012 from Rock Paper Scissors, the participants of Women’s Work and the members of the North Jersey MQG for their work on the quilts pictured above.

I’m especially looking forward to my lecture Building a Personalized Quilting Practice (LEC10) on Friday at 11:30. I’ll be talking about how I approach my own practice and helping attendees ask the questions that guide them toward a quilting practice full of enjoyment and satisfaction.

If you’re planning on going, consider joining me! I’m so honored to be a member of this super talented faculty, and I’m already preparing and looking forward to it. I’ve been spending a lot of time with my kids in this time between school and camp. I hope you’ve been well.
