Trunk Show and Advanced Piecing Workshop with Lee Heinrich

The Minneapolis Modern Quilt Guild is hosting two upcoming events with Lee Heinrich, co-author of the best-selling book Vintage Quilt Revival and blogger at Freshly Pieced. We are excited to meet Lee and see first-hand how she beautifully melds traditional and modern quilting!

Trunk show
Friday, January 30, 7-9 PM, Textile Center of Minnesota
Lee will talk about her creative journey and what she sees as her place in the spectrum of modern quilting. We'll see many of her quilts, and she'll let us in on some easy strategies for freshening up traditional blocks and taking your quilt designs to the next level.

Advanced Piecing Workshop-- 2 Spaces Left!

Saturday, January 31, 10 AM-4 PM, Textile Center of Minnesota
Why should modern quilters learn to make traditional blocks? Because they're like piecing bootcamp, perfect for honing your technique and increasing your accuracy, no matter what type of quilting you love! In this workshop, take your piecing skills to the next level and sew more complex designs, with advanced techniques such as foundation paper-piecing, piecing with traditional templates, and partial seams.  We'll spend the day making several of the blocks from Lee's book, "Vintage Quilt Revival: 22 Modern Designs from Classic Blocks." Students will leave with a good start on a sampler quilt from the book, plus the skills to complete the rest!  
 $40 for Minneapolis Modern Quilt Guild members, $50 for non-members. A copy of "Vintage Quilt Revival" is required for the class. Please email gmitteco [at] gmail [dot] com to register.
