2014 Panguitch Quilt Walk

I am so excited that I have been invited to teach two classes at this years Quilt Walk!  It has been a few years since I have been down to the show.  I have missed it.  It is always lots of fun, and this year they have invited Jenny Doan as the guest teacher!!! 
I am repeating a class I taught in 2010- "Heads and Tails Quilts".  We will sew two strips of fabric together, cut them into triangles, and then we will really have fun designing lots of different quilts!  If you refer to my 2010 posts, you will see the pictures from our class and get some ideas of what my students made.  We had so much fun!!!

The other class I am teaching is called "Spinning Star".  This is a technique class that teaches paper piecing using freezer paper.  IF you have ever done traditional paper piecing, you know what a pain it is to pick out all of the little pieces of paper.  This technique eliminates that step!  If you have never tried paper piecing, you will LOVE the precision you get in your blocks.  We will start simple and then move on to the more advanced "Spinning Star" pattern.  I have been working on a quilt with my blocks and two of my friends have been learning the process.  We had a retreat last week and I want to share some of the pictures I took.
These are the blocks I have been working on!  I am excited to get this quilt finished!!!

You can see all of the fun colors that I am including. 

Jeannie's quilt will mostly be made with one line of fabric.

You can see how the contrast in fabrics really makes the block "POP"

Sherrie is making a patriotic themed quilt for her son, the firefighter.

This is another one of my blocks.

I hope to see you all in Panguitch!!!
