This three-part workshop provides basic skills for beginners, and great drop-in sessions for experienced quilters. Sign up for any one session, or for all three!  Led by master quilter and teacher Connie Logan and Mary Rentz, artist and quilt designer, each student will start their own Shaker gift drawing block, which may be finished into a wall hanging or be the first block of a larger quilt. Our expert instructors will cover fabric and color choice, cutting, placement, and applique techniques and simple embroidery, as well as squaring, marking, assembly, quilting and finishing.

Session 1, March 9: Basic applique quilting skills, using a pattern.

Session 2, April 6: Embroidery techniques, adding borders

Session 3, May 11: Making the quilt sandwich, hand quilting, adding binding
