Sampler quilts with their different blocks can sometimes be the hardest of all to quilt, leading to “stand and stare” syndrome. Bethanne will share her popular mid-custom technique of eliminating back tracking in quilting and the majority of stitch-in-the-ditch, while combining piecing elements to create dramatic secondary designs that unify samplers (or any block quilt). Don’t sacrifice the “WOW” factor of custom, but DO give up custom’s time commitment! Students will sketch and share some of their own unique designs in this interactive drawing and lecture class. Supplies are not required for a lecture, although you may want to bring a pen and paper to take notes.
