Workshop with Mel Beach: “Intriguing Interleaves”
Unlock the fun and intrigue of Lorrie Cranor's Interleave quilts. All the secrets of creating the illusion of curves and transparency using only straight line stitching will be revealed. Best of all, Interleave quilts are assembled using a quilt-as-you-go technique, so your unique Interleave quilt will be pieced and quilted at the same time! Fee for this workshop is $45 for members, $55 for non-members. A supply list will be emailed to each participant.
