I am so excited to invite you all to a one of a kind workshop! Do you love foundation paper piecing or are you terrified of it? Either way, this is the class for you! First, let me introduce you to our guest:
David Gilleland is the designer behind Vector Quilts. He lives in Cumming, GA. David’s primary design focus is on foundation/paper pieced patterns. David grew up watching his mom making tied baby quilts for her friends. He loved watching the sewing machine run and would sneak to use her machine while she was at work. When he was 17, he began his own quilting journey. Over the past 24 years, he has set it aside and picked it back up, again, culminating in 2015 when he finally purchased his first longarm. Over the past few years he found another passion: teaching and sharing his love of quilting. He has found that helping others learn new techniques, designing new patterns, and bringing quilting into others’ lives is very rewarding.This is the founding idea behind Vector Quilts; the best legacy we can leave others is our knowledge. His mission is to spread the love he has for quilting. David travels the US teaching foundation piecing, vending at quilt shows and giving presentations to shops and guilds.
David will be joining us for two days, June 14-15, 2019. On Friday night he will be presenting a trunk show displaying his mind blowing quilts, you don't want to miss seeing these in person! The real magic happens on Saturday with an all day workshop where we will be making the Star Voyage quilt. This quilt is a great way to start your foundation quilting process. If you are already comfortable with foundation piecing, David is going to teach you the tips and tricks to get the best possible results. He will also have patterns and tools available for purchase at both events. If you sign up for the workshop, your seat at the trunk show is free of charge.
