Autumn Retreat: “Petit Patchwork”
co-hosted by Stash Bandit and Wagner’s Quilts & Conversation
September 13 to 15, 2018 in Arapahoe, Nebraska
I’d love for you to join me for a skill-building extravaganza during three days of quilting, laughter, great food, fun and relaxation! Here’s the little quilt we’ll be using to beef up our toolbox of quilting tricks.
It’s about 36″ x 40″. The blocks are from 2″ to 8″. The techniques we’ll be learning include Dresden Plate, fusible applique, stitch-and-flip with accuracy, options for making HSTs, mitering, paper foundation piecing (optional), how to create scalloped borders for any size quilt, serpentine stitch quilting and binding curves and scallops. Doesn’t that sound like fun?!
It will be a busy three days. Wagner’s is planning delicious food in abundance, and you can treat yourself to a massage on site if you wish.
New quilting friends and uninterrupted sewing time at one of the most beautiful times of the year! We’ll take short walk-breaks, weather permitting. Arapahoe is a lovely little town, a perfect example of life in rural America.
Get ideas for improving your machine quilting. Learn my easy mock-hand binding by machine. Gather gusto for labeling your quilts with a finishing flourish! All included in the retreat price of $200, which includes meals, three days of instruction and a kit for the quilt in your choice of three color stories: primary (shown), 1930s and Civil War. Lodging is available separately, and you’ll be given details when you call Wagner’s to register at 308-962-8458.
