Tamar Drucker – The Magic of Transparency
Have you ever considered working with transparent fabrics? Whatever your style is, adding transparent areas to your work can add magic, softness, and interest.
In this workshop we will learn different ways of creating transparent areas in your quilt. They can be within the quilt, or at the edges. We will create a sample piece that has an inner transparent area as well as transparent extensions.

Patricia Loquet - Arabic Lattice - **CANCELLED**
Patricia Loquet – Arabic Lattice
Arabic Lattice is a traditional pattern and is perfect for confident beginners as well as more advanced quilters. The pattern makes large 11” blocks. The finished size of the quilt is 53″X64″ including borders. The block consists of a 4-patch around which the lattice triangles are sewn. A template is used for the lattice pieces and a partial seam is used to sew the four lattice triangles to the 4-patch. The template is large and very easy to use. The template will be supplied by me. You may not think you want to use a template but believe me these blocks go together very quickly. And partial seams are very easy, especially with such large pieces.
