209 Hidden Wells
Wednesday & Thursday
We’re uncovering the Secrets of the Hidden Wells. Sounds like a Nancy Drew Mystery, doesn’t it? Unlike the twists and turns in her books, this class uses simple, straight strip piecing with a few strategic cuts to unveil lots of intersecting diamonds. What’s your favorite style? Hidden Wells varieties can look like stained glass, or a string quilt, or a piece of modern art. Bring your favorite fabrics – Jelly Rolls will work too. The final result can be a quilt of any size you choose, from wall hanging to king. Like any good mystery, there will be surprises and choices to make along the way. No pre-cutting required. Bring a large square ruler and lots of pretty fabrics.
Class Fee is $7 for pattern.
Below are some examples of the Stained Glass Effect you can achieve in Hidden Wells ~
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”
