Counting Down to Garden of Quilts!

Our 2022 Garden of Quilts event is only one month away and we are getting so excited! There is going to be so much to see and do at this event. Today, we are going to highlight just a few of the fun events that will happening in the gardens!

The Doan Girls Triple Play Trunk Show

We have some fabulous evening events this year. Today we want to highlight The Doan Girls Triple Play Trunk Show!!

Join Jenny, Natalie, and Misty for this year’s Triple Play Trunk Show. Each month, on the third Friday, the Doan Girls join creative forces to design three unique quilts using spins on a classic quilt block. Three times the ideas and three times the fun. This year the ladies will showcase all their Triple Play creations from August 2021 – June 2022. They will show each of their quilts, the classic block it was inspired by and the step outs to show how each was constructed. You won’t want to miss this engaging event when the girls share their inspiration and technique for planning and making each design.

Happy Dash

Teacher – Janet Nesbitt, One Sister LLC
Technique – Piecing
Skill Level – Beginner

In this class, students will learn the basics of Janet Nesbitt’s “crazy” piecing technique with a cute project that can be completed during class. This trademark piecing method is easy and forgiving, ensuring quilting success for piecers of all levels. This is not a traditional piecing method in the sense that everything lines up, instead this as an alternative to traditional paper piecing which can be difficult for some that have difficulty working in reverse/from the wrong side. Note: this is not a machine quilting class.

This year, due to popular demand, we have expanded our class offerings and have invited some brand new teachers! Today we want to highlight two new teachers and the classes they are teaching.
