A Wonky Star: Improv with a Vintage Twist
Embrace the magic as you are given permission to combine the love of vintage with a fun modern aesthetic. Work with vintage textiles to create a wonky star with lots of negative space for modern quilting designs. The workshop is packed full of tips for working with vintage fragments and ways to showcase these treasured pieces. Students are encouraged to bring their own vintage blocks and fragments or they may purchase a kit of their choice in class. Finished sizes will vary.
Enjoy quilts from Mary's book, Twisted: Modern Quilts with a Vintage Twist and become inspired to create your own Twisted magic!
