QUILT ‘TIL YOU WILT- FRIDAY - OPTION 1 FRIDAY, JULY 19, 2019 9:30 am – 4:30 pm HERITAGE SENIOR CENTER 300 RACE TRACK ROAD HENDERSON, NV 89015
HARMONIC CONVERGENCE and GRAND CONVERGENCE
Kathy Larson, Instructor
These two technique-rich workshops are fun & appropriate for beginners & experienced quilters alike. Included will be detailed instructions of the techniques & processes used in class, along with pictures of examples for ideas & inspiration on completing your quilt tops. They can be used as quilts, backgrounds for art quilts, purses, bags or just about any project you can think of! Kathy Larson will be teaching these Ricky Tims’ techniques. With a convergence quilt the design unfolds on it’s own, based on the fabrics used. She encourages you to “trust the process”. Once the main design is complete, endless possibilities & opportunities for originality will follow. You will be able to complete two small quilt tops during class, which you then can take home to add borders and applique.
Kathy Larson joined DQN & Silver Threads in 2017 after returning to the Las Vegas area from a four-year motor-home trip across the United States. She has been quilting for nearly 30 years, giving away over 300 quilts as gifts, donations or charity quilts.
