Maria Shell
Three Points – A Triangle Workshop

Workshop:  October 6 & 20–5-8CST
Program:  July 27

Maria is a world-renowned teacher who will come to us virtually from Alaska.  In her program, Patchwork to Artwork, she will share her work from her first stitches to her most recent pieces along with some fun stories about trying to quilt while raising three boys in the wild lands of Alaska. Maria’s work is grounded in the tradition of American patchwork while also connecting to both the modern and art quilt moments. It is journey filled with laughter, dark Alaskan nights, and lots of stitching.

Three Points:  A Triangle Workshop is split into two – three-hour sessions to give us time to sew and play.  She describes the triangle as an elegant shape that can be used to create dynamic quilts. This workshop covers all manner of triangles and way to improvisation-ally cut and piece them into patchwork art.

Cost for the workshop is: $80.  Deadline for sign ups will be September 22nd.  Do not wait. Send your check to Candy Grisham, 3 Woodbine Ct. Washington, MO 63090Please make checks out to Bits n Pieces QG
