When Stacy was making her quilt HONOLULU HURRICANES, she found a secret technique hidden in a Hawaiian appliqué block, like a pearl in an oyster. Just like the classic pearl, this technique is versatile enough to fit with many styles of quilts, not just Hawaiian. This technique will allow you to join prequilted sections together on a standard home machine with ease. You will find some balance between a whacked and slashed quilt, finished in a day with a signature stitch from the local longarm quilter, and a never-finished quilt of your dreams sitting dusty in a hand-quilting frame. Breaking it down into manageable parts is the key! You’ll be amazed by what you can accomplish on your home machine with this brilliant technique.

(Plus Handout Fee)


Precut bundles are one of the hottest trends, and quilters just can’t resist these delectable textile treats! Their versatility is perfect for this fun-filled workshop guaranteed to turn all those enticing 2½” strips, 10″ squares, and charm packs you love (and have been saving!) into a fabulous quilt. Let Kimberly introduce you to her signature technique called “modular piecing,” which is a system of simple pieced units used to create new blocks, settings, or complex-looking designs. Using a myriad of basic building block units, Kimberly will show you how to piece a wide range of blocks in modular sizes. You’ll use her Precision Flying Geese & HST, Precision Jelly Roll, and new Precision Precuts rulers, along with traditional methods, to their best advantage, with no math, no wasted fabric, and best of all, no stress! Kimberly will share every trick in the book for precision piecing and will help you unlock your inner design diva. You’ll love her encouraging, upbeat, energetic, and humorous teaching style (plus a few surprises along the way)! Lunch is provided each day.
