Dallas Modern Quilt Guild Workshop

Dallas Modern Quilt Guild Workshop

I cannot thank the Dallas Modern Quilt Guild enough for having me out. That meeting was an absolute blast. The guild members were so friendly and ambitious. The Get Published lecture was first up, then the Hexagons Made Easy Wall Hanging Workshop. The guild meeting was actually moved to a Saturday and to a larger venue to accommodate the workshop. If you follow me on Instagram, reannalilydesigns_jen, you may have already seen a few of these pics. Each of the workshop students received a fabric kit. There’s plenty of fabric in the kit to learn the technique, make the project OR learn the technique and branch off to create something totally unique. The workshoppers embraced that and made some of the most innovative little 30″ square quilts. With their permission- check out some of these cool works-in-progress: We have purple. We have blue. We have floral. We have stripes. …. AND most importantly we have HEXAGONS! Look at ’em go! I cannot wait to see some of the finished mini quilts. Thanks again for having me out! If your guild or shop is interested in the lecture or workshop, please see this link for more information. Have quilts. Will travel. *Fabric used in the kits showcased is by Art Gallery...

Phew. Houston was a whirlwind. And it was over a week ago. Quilt Market Hangover for sure. I know loads of blogs and websites are showing you booth pictures, but I thought I’d share photos from the Hexagons Made Easy class (Sunday Oct 27th).   The classroom was HUGE. It was wonderful. There were 28 provided sewing machines sponsored by Pfaff. Those were incredible machines. They were so smooth and high-tech.   To my delight, the early morning 8am class was sold out. Thank you all for coming out before Quilt Market even opened that Sunday. There were many coffee cups around the room. The students got to choose from two kit fabrics. Grant Park, a more traditional design and color pallet and DayDream, a more bright modern collection. I started the class by saying “There’s a kit at your machine. It is either traditional or modern. If you want to trade, trade now.” It was cool to see people moving and hopping around peacefully. Quilters are pretty committed to their colors. I cannot blame them. The class was very flexible and at the end of it all these wonderful students made all sorts of designs with the provided fabrics. We had table runners, small designs, experiments and innovations. I loved teaching. The class was smooth and I think the students had a good time. I was so happy with the diverse talented group I had. Thank you all for coming out! If you are a quilt shop and would like me to bring the class to your store, send me an email. reannalilydesigns@gmail.com...

And the strip quilts are finito. Hooray. Before I show you all the pictures of the quilts, let me first super big huge mega thank the people that rallied to help me make the quilts. Karen Morello, Erica Mitchell and Christine Robbins. The ladies helped piece, quilt and bind these quilts. It was really a great team effort. Thank you thank you thank you! So what’d we make? Military Uniform Quilts Inspired by the book, Deploy That Fabric, we used military uniform fabric and Moda Jelly Rolls to create larger twin size quilts. We made the quilts in the style of the 1600 Quilt Race or Jelly Roll Quilt. Of course, our quilts – in order to be larger than a couch quilt- we used 2 Jelly Rolls + uniform fabric. The last step will be to add a name tape to each quilt for the client. Army Navy Air Force Marines Coast...
