You'll learn a lot about the history of fabric and quilting in America while viewing over 3 dozen quilts dated from 1846-1950 some purchased from junk shops for as little as $5, others at auction for a whole lot more!

 Saturday December 9, 2017:  HOLIDAY PARTY

2017  N VQ   Programs & Workshops

See Michelle Moore for more details and sign ups.

​​I have never been known to follow the rules, so blending modern aesthetics with traditional quilting makes perfect sense to me. Color, texture, and bold graphics are key elements in my quilts. I also like to ignore the obvious and make unusual choices in my designs - it makes the journey much more interesting.

Whether you read my blog, take one of my workshops, or buy one of my patterns, I hope I can inspire you to follow your own creative path - even if you have to break a rule or two along the way

Sunday August 13, 2017:  The Workshop will be "Continuous Braid" with Pati Fried.

 Saturday November 11, 2017:  The Program Title "Antique Quilts ~  Lecture and A Trunk Show of History" by Diane Steele


I'm a passionate quilter born and raised in Northern California. I'm active in 2 quilt guilds, the president on one! I've worked in a quilt shop, collect antique quilts, lecture and teach quilting and am a member of the Calendar Girls, a block exchanging and very fun group! I'm inspired by my fellow quilters, quilt shows and quilting magazines so I always have several quilt projects going at a time. Yes, I'm a Rabid Quilter!

Leslie Vaughn and Sharon Templeton did a GREAT JOB with our Programs & Workshops this year. 

 Saturday August 12, 2017:  The Program will be a Lecture  Title "Modern Traditionalist"
