VCQ Online Classes
Registration is now open for our Zoom class, Twist and Shout, with Mary Kerr on September 10.
This fast paced workshop encourages participants to showcase vintage quilt top fragments into a contemporary quilt. Vintage blocks are set with a twisted template into an exciting new setting. Students are encouraged to bring their own vintage blocks and fragments or they may purchase a kit of their choice in class. Finished sizes will vary. Enjoy quilts from Mary's book, Recycled Hexies, and become inspired to create your own treasured pieces.
