May 20 - Barbara Baker

Barbara Baker is our guest speaker for May, who will be doing a trunk show for the evening program.  Many of you know Barbara as a teacher for Patchwork Place, and as the coordinator of the ongoing Patches Clubs here in Norman.  Barbara will also teach a day class from 9:00 - 4:00, on Debbie Maddy's  Labyrinth pattern. 
To sign up for this class, contact Sharon Dries.  Cost for the class is $20 plus purchase of the pattern if you don't already have it.

We'll be making the lap size (58" x 58") in classs, or you may work on any of the sizes listed in the pattern (lap through king).  The supply list  for all the sizes,  and cutting instructions are linked below.  The cutting insstructions are those Barbara teaches, so be sure to pre-cut your fabrics using her guidelines, not the ones listed on the supply list.  This is a beautiful quilt designed by Debbie Maddy and uses no Y-seams!  Barbara will have patterns for sale in the class, but please let Sharon know if you want to take the class ASAP so we can have enough patterns for everyone.

April 15: Charlotte Hickman

Charlotte Hickman has always been a fiber enthusiast using both yarns and fabrics.  Since her retirement from school teaching and administration, she has become completely addicted to the world of quilting.  Charlotte lectures and teaches workshops on fabric painting, dying, piecing and appliquéing techniques. She is also an experienced, award-winning quilter and educator, specializing in art quilts. Her quilts are meticulously sewn and quilted on her home domestic sewing machine.  Charlotte will present a truck show at our evening meeting, and will host a workshop on her pattern, “Irisis”, using machine applique techniques.  To enroll in the workshop, contact Sharon Dries, Program Chair

The blog promotion catch phrase for April is, of course, "April Showers", and boy do we need more of them!   Be sure to mention this to our Vice President, Judith Clark, when you receive your door prize ticket to get an additional ticket.
