Road to California Workshop Give Away & MORE!

Last week, I shared with you the complete list of the virtual workshops that I will be teaching in the next few months. You can read about that schedule here.

New School Workshop!

Today, I am holding a Holiday Quilt Workshop Give Away—along with BONUS items!

I am giving away one spot in each of the following workshops at Road to California aka Road@HOME. Here are the workshop descriptions including times and dates. Winners will receive a FREE spot in the workshop they have won, but they must still pay the $7 registration fee to Road to California.

BLOW IT UP—Big Block Quilt Composition
Description: Using the traditional quilt block as your starting point, we will enlarge and magnify the lines of the structure and use them as our skeleton for building a pieced composition. From there we will explore a variety of ways to create texture, pattern, and repetition in that space.
