Take the classic Log Cabin block and give it a modern twist in this cute little quilt. Not ready for a modern quilt? The design also looks good in batiks, solids, Christmas fabrics, etc., and would make a delightful baby quilt. You will start the day with a quick chat on how to sew your blocks with more accuracy, then move on to make four blocks as in the sample. However, be warned: most people get hooked and want to make more blocks for a larger quilt!

Teacher: Judi Kirk
Level: All Levels

You may love to free-motion quilt yourself, or you may find it easier and more effective to “quilt by checkbook” and send tops to be longarm quilted. But what can you do with charity quilts, baby quilts for your neighbors’ relatives, or other times when you may not want to spend a lot of time or money to get a quilt finished? Judi will show you how to use the walking foot on your domestic sewing machine, combined with straight or decorative stitches, to create a host of easy designs that will allow you to get quilts finished faster and easier than you ever imagined! You may even find that you like the look of this quilting style so much that you want to use it for all your quilts.

Location: Ballroom D
Teacher: Judi Kirk

Modern quilts are being featured more and more in books, magazines, and shows. So what makes a quilt “Modern”, and how does it differ from other quilt styles? International quilt judge Judi Kirk is a member of both the USA-based Modern Quilt Guild and the Modern section of the Quilters Guild of the British Isles. Beginning with a brief history of Modern quilting and its development, Judi will highlight the elements that make a quilt Modern. This talk will demystify terms like “alternative grids” and “asymmetry”, and you may find that you have been a modern quilter without knowing it! Supplies are not required for a lecture, although you may want to bring a pen and paper to take notes.
