Anyone with a passion for quilting is invited to join Sharon McConnell, a pattern designer and teacher, for a two-day quilt workshop in Lakeside.
The "Classic Curved Quilts" Workshop will begin at 9 a.m. Friday, Sept. 8 and end by 5 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 9. It will focus on elements of curved pieces, hand applique and reserve piecing. Featured pattern choices include “whimsy garden” and “eclipse,” and participants can choose which pattern to make.
McConnell has spent her entire life watching her mother and grandmother quilt but didn’t take it up until college graduation 17 years ago.
“Quilting became something my mom and I did together as she taught me,” said McConnell. “I realized early on that I liked creating my own designs rather than following patterns.”
She also enjoys the entire process of making quilts, from choosing colors and fabrics to trying new piecing techniques.
“The creativity in quilting makes it such a rewarding hobby, and I love teaching others from my experiences,” McConnell said.
McConnell teaches classes at Quilt Beginnings in Columbus, Ohio. Visit http://www.colorgirlquilts.com for more information.
Registration includes lunch both days, plus one quilt pattern. To participate, complete the Lakeside Quilt Workshop Registration Form.
