May 13
Cog and Wheel Quilt Workshop,
Woodville Community Center
10:00 am – 4:30 pm

Cog + Wheel Quilt Along Workshop (Piecing)

Cog-Wheel-Poster.pdfInspired by a quilt pattern from 1902, Cog + Wheel hurtles us back to the industrial age with a playfully bold graphic that rolls right on any bed. Spend the day with Denyse making your own version of her Cog + Wheel quilt pattern! We’ll discuss ways to organize our color/fabric selections, and how to vary the layout of blocks to individualize your quilt. She’ll guide you through cutting and piecing, and we’ll have time to discuss how quilts reflect our culture and historic context.

May 14
Woven Quilt Workshop
Woodville Community Center
10:00 am – 4:30 pm

Woven Quilt (Piecing)

My Woven Quilt pattern is a tribute to historic coverlets made in New England mills near where Denyse grew up and woven by hand around the U.S. The graphic effect of this pattern can be softened or accentuated by fabric choices – choose two solid fabrics close in hue or value for a quieter effect, or strong complimentary colors for maximum impact. You can also make this pattern in a range of print fabrics. Your choice! In this workshop she’ll guide you through color or fabric choice/placement and show you the most efficient methods of making the sections that compose Woven. You won’t complete your quilt top in the workshop, but you’ll be well on your way to doing so once you get home.

Facebook

Non-Facebook members are able to view posts on the Quilter’s Unlimited Facebook page because it is an “open to public” viewable page.  For those Guild members who are on Facebook, we encourage you to take a look at our page, and maybe even “Like” it and “Follow” it. If you follow, you’ll receive the occasional email about upcoming events. When you do, please Share it so your friends will see what’s happening!

Edification: A wide variety of books, magazines, and videos in the QU library are available for loan to members. The Guild sponsors workshops by nationally known quilters as well as classes by Guild members. Attendance is open first to Guild members, but if room is still available as a class or workshop date approaches, non-members are invited to sign up.

Participation: Members can participate in the many Guild-sponsored activities — and a wide variety of opportunities exist! You can help with the Guild’s annual opportunity quilt, make quilts to hang in the annual show at the Museum of Florida History or the triennial show at City Hall, make items for the museum show’s silent auction or a challenge quilt, make quilts for various philanthropic causes, or join a Sit-N-Stitch to meet and have fun with a smaller group between regular Guild meetings. We sponsor a yearly bus trip to QuiltFest Jax. And members’ projects are always welcomed for the monthly “Show and Tell.”
