About the Class
This is a beautiful quilt that looks more difficult than it is. We will make it even easier by using quick cutting and piecing techniques. Squaring up the pieces before sewing them together makes it more precise. Strip piecing will also save money on excess fabric.
Learn how to convert pattern instructions to make quilt blocks using less fabric and cutting fewer pieces. We will use strip piecing and other techniques to speed piece and make this quilt in less time. Students will receive handouts and make half square triangles 8 at a time instead of 1 at a time; and flying geese 4 at a time instead of 1 at a time.
We will complete the Center Star and work on the surrounding sections of the center medallion.
Marianne learned to love sewing at a young age. She learned to hand quilt from her mother
and grandmother and enjoyed those times spent with them.
She has spent over 30 years taking classes and learning new techniques. She loves finding fun
and efficient ways to make beautiful quilts and especially enjoys piecing quilt tops. She has
taught classes in Utah, Idaho and Wyoming. Her quilting classes include small piecing, and
techniques for adding efficiency and precision. She also teaches wool applique and bag
making. She has created several of her own patterns and projects. Marianne is always looking
for new designs and techniques and loves every step of the quilting process.
Quilting isn’t just a fun hobby; it gathers friends and families and creates lasting memories!
Marianne loves seeing her grandbabies snuggled in their quilts or her kids and their families
having a picnic on a quilt she’s made! Marianne hopes that “Quilting with Marianne” will help
others create memories and find their passion for quilting.
