109 Playing with Triangles
Monday & Tuesday
“Creative” is not a 4-letter word! Quench your inner desire to “get creative” without feeling overwhelmed. Here’s your opportunity to get comfortable wielding a 60º triangle ruler. Be scrappy or plan your fabrics. Bring jelly roll packs, ¼-yard cuts, or any full width (40-42”) scraps. We will use a variety of light to dark, different scale prints, tone-on-tones, and filler fabrics to help those special prints stand out. Construction starts with simple strip piecing. Once our triangles are cut, it’s time to “get creative” and sew those triangles into the most extraordinary designs. Final piecing is simple – no Y-seams. Directions will outline options for at least 3 different patterns and several sizes. 60º Ruler required.
Pattern fee: $8.
Kris made her first quilt about 30 years ago and fell in love with rotary cutting tools and techniques when they were in their infancy. She has been teaching classes in her home studio for the past 25 years. In 1993 Kris traveled to California to earn her “Quilt in a Day Teachers Certification” from Eleanor Burns. In 1994, Kris began attending quilt seminars at Cedar Lakes as a student and 5 years later began teaching at Quilt Camp.
Kris enjoys teaching and exploring ever changing methodologies for a large variety of quilting techniques from machine piecing, machine and hand applique, hand quilting and crazy quilt embellishing. She has recently published some of the quilt patterns she has developed over the years. Modern art quilting is rapidly becoming her new passion.
Kris enjoys hosting charity quilt seminars to create quilts for her local children’s hospital. Her other great joy is creating 6 foot by 10 foot banners to flank the rugged wooden cross at the front of her church.
Kris and her husband Bob retired to Cape Cod in 2014 and would like to extend an invitation to anyone who’s visiting or vacationing at “the Cape” to stop by and enjoy some time at her lakefront quilt workshop. In the near future, she plans to offer small-group quilt retreats at her new “Sandy Pond Studio”
