May speaker will be Lynn Wilder “The Geography of a Quilt”.
She will also be teaching a class called Patchwork Math. Patchwork Math is an all-day class intended for everyone, from a beginner to a seasoned quilter. The class and companion reference manual includes quilting formulas and instructions to make 12 popular quilting components……any size….from quarter square triangles, square in a triangle, square in a square, Y-squares, to three different kinds of flying geese and more.
She will show and discuss easy-peasey ways to construct quilting components, and how to assemble them into an assortment of different blocks. Learn how to dissect complicated blocks into manageable units with the straightforward formulas, and uncomplicated construction techniques. The techniques and formulas can be applied to blocks, block framing ideas, sashings, and border treatments. Never be afraid of quilting math again. You can check out her blog and web site for more info.
