As you know, we are all busy getting ready for our participation in Quilting in the Garden, the upcoming event at Alden Lane Nursery in Livermore, CA, Sept. 22-23. In addition to the spectacular outdoor quilt show with featured artist Judy Mathieson, queen of Mariner’s Compass quilts, there will be several classes offered in the days leading up to the show. Our own Christie Batterman will be teaching her popular Retro Chic quilt on Thursday, Sept. 20th from 9-4 p.m. This pattern is from her Artichoke Collection Line.
If you are in the area, I encourage you to join Christie for a fun-filled, one-day class in which you’ll begin your version of the delicious Retro Chic quilt. The quilt features a unique diagonal pattern made entirely from one four-piece block. Design alternatives are based on simple variations in fabric placement and block rotation. Students will learn how easy it is to sew simple curves and to achieve a look that appears much more complex than it really is!
Hope to see you at the show!
