log cabin quilting class next week! July 6, 2010

If anyone in Portland is interested, I wanted to mention that I’m teaching a Log Cabin Quilting workshop at PNCA next week – July 12-15, from 10 to 4 every day, as part of the Summer of Making. There are a few spots left and I’d love to see some crafty friends in the class! If you sign up for the workshop, I’d love to bring you a set of some of my favorite vintage fabrics as a thank-you — just let me know what colors and styles you like most and I’ll pick out some fun things.

From the course description:
In this four-day workshop, learn to use log cabin piecing and quilting in many different kinds of projects. Building on the basics of this technique, students will learn to create stunning quilt blocks to use for quilts or smaller projects. This class will focus on color, balance, arrangements and intuitive design when choosing fabrics and arranging completed blocks. Students should bring some of their favorite fabrics and a sewing machine.

If you’re interested in the class, please let me know if you have any questions and I’d love to pass on more information or details. Four days is such a nice amount of time to work on projects like these — I loved the weekend class I took at PNCA last year and would have loved to have more time there!

I adore vintage and antique log cabin quilts and will bring in the ones I have for us to look over. The color choices and block arrangements make the outcome stunningly personal, and I love to see what other people choose to do in quilt design.

I’d appreciate it so much if you’d spread the word to anyone else who might be interested — thanks so much! Hope to see you next week, and thanks so much to the folks who have already signed up. Don’t forget to drop me a line with your favorite colors for those vintage fabrics…

PS: Just a quick note, the lovely Portland Modern Quilt Guild has moved to a new blog site! Check over there for announcements and meeting updates. The next meeting is July 15th from 7 to 9 at PNCA, and the theme is All about Hexagons.
