Marietta Irvin – Painting on Fabric 
Corine Cudney—Two Stepping Quilt Block 
Karen Stenback—Prayer Flags 
Peggy Vachon—Easy Tumbling Blocks

Quilter’s College is back by popular demand! We have another opportunity to learn new skills or to refresh the skills we haven’t used in a while. AVQA has a lot of talent, and we are glad to have four guild members who are willing to share their talents.

Marietta will show us how to paint on fabric using oil-based paint sticks, stamping with ink and stenciling with acrylics. 

Corine will show us the Two Stepping quilt block. It’s a fun block for all quilters, but an especially good block for those just starting out on their quilting journey. 

Karen will show us how fiber artists and quilters from around the world have taken their passion to a new direction and found an outlet for expressing their hopes, dreams, concerns and joys by committing it to fabric. These small, but meaningful flags have touched many hearts and continue to spread hope and peace as they are shared with others. 

Peggy will show us a technique that will demonstrate an Easy Tumbling Block. Tumbling blocks don’t have an “easy” look to them so, an “easy” technique that caters to early learners as well as those who have quilted for years is something to look forward to seeing.

Join us at 5:00, before the General Meeting at Cali Café for a time of food, fun and fellowship. Cali Café is located at 44140 20th Street West, Lancaster.
