My Quilts — Start to Finish


Beads! Thom have been working on and off with beads for some thirty years, starting with jewelry, then bead embroidery and finally, bead embellished quilts. One of his mentors has been his sister Robin Atkins, teacher, friend, and fellow beadophile. It was under her tutelage that he learned bead embroidery. He has since adapted the basic embroidery stitches for the application of beads to quilts.

In this lecture, he will show how he approaches each new quilt, starting with the fabrics and/or design idea, cutting, putting it together, and then finishing the quilt.

Thom is local to the Monterey Bay but don't miss hearing him sharing his and passion.

Little 4-Patch

Kellie Willey

Kellie Willey is a "Miniature Quilt Maker" and will share her experiences and techniques in this workshop. Create little 4-patch blocks that measure 1-inch finished! It's a great use for all those cute little novelty prints that you just couldn't pass up. Pattern requires using very small-scale prints that are less than 1" in diameter. Accurate cutting and piecing techniques will be taught as well as fabric choice and design layout.
