Find Your Quilty Identity
– Zoom Lecture

Lecture by Erin Grogan from LoveSewModern

Tuesday, September 27, 2022 at 6:00 pm CST
Guest tickets are available for $10

This lecture dives into the discovery of who you are as an artist as quilter. I’ve met many wonderful quilters who feel like they don’t know what they “like.” They say things like they only make quilts from kits or feel like they have to use what fabric is currently popular. There’s nothing wrong with this approach if it brings you joy, but if you’re looking to grow this is the lecture for you. I break down the four different stages of a quilter. I then share my process for finding the color palette that represents you.

Note:  This lecture is free for BNMQG members.
Guest tickets are available for $10.

Minimal Design, Maximum Impact – Zoom Lecture

Lecture by David Owen Hastings

Tuesday, November 29, 2022 at 6:00 pm CST
Guest tickets are available for $10

The modern quilting movement is evolving and changing, but one thing remains consistent: simple, spare design combined with thoughtful quilting make an outstanding combination.

This talk gives an overview of David’s process for coming up with simple graphic quilt designs, starting with stitched paper models (called maquettes). He will show examples of how to translate an architectural photo into a quilt design and will have many samples of mini quilts he created using this process. The techniques he will present are also great for making unique modern quilt block designs. As a bonus, he will talk about walking foot quilting and how to break free from stitch in the ditch.

Note:  This lecture is free for BNMQG members.
Guest tickets are available for $10.

Pojagi – from Ancient Korea to Modern Canada
– Zoom Lecture

Lecture by Elizabeth DeCroos
Tuesday, February 28, 2023 at 6 pm CST

Part lecture and part trunk show, this fun talk tells my journey from Canada to Korea and back again.  While in Korea, I studied the ancient art of Pojagi, Korean patchwork.  Back in Canada, however, the Korean materials are more difficult to find, so I adapted pojagi techniques to readily-available western materials with some great results

Guest tickets are available for $10.

Mini Mid-Mod Quilts
Zoom Workshop

With David Owen Hastings
Saturday, December 3, 2022 at 10:00 am CST

These charming little quilts are inspired by Mid-Century Modern design, and are a great skill-building project to learn a number of quilting techniques.

Start with a simple, modern color palette of neutral fabrics with a flash of color. Clean lines combined with simple design give each tiny composition a sophisticated feeling. This is a great project for using small scraps and bits of special fabric.

Learn the quilt-as-you-go method. A materials and supplies list will be emailed in advance. Hand stitching adds a sleek, linear element. Finishing techniques will be demonstrated.

This workshop is a 3-HOUR live-stream event, conducted on Zoom, consisting of live instruction.   Guidance for getting started will be sent in advance of the workshop. Work small, Work smart, look great.
