INTERLEAVE WORKSHOP with Joan Loomis

2-Day Workshop, October 19-20, 2019 THIS WORKSHOP IS FULL

The Interleave quilting technique was devised by Lori Cranor, a Computing Scientist from Mellon University. Interleave quilts are pieced with thin strips of fabric using a quilt-as-you-go technique. These thin strips are cut from two panels of fabric and pieced alternating strips from each panel. Strips can be shifted to form a wave pattern (as shown above). The result is a complex-looking quilt that can be pieced quite quickly and made into cushion covers, place mats, bags or runners.

This workshop fee is $75 for active members only. Unfortunately this workshop is currently FULL with a waiting list.

The workshop will be held from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm in Meeting Room 1, Fenlands Recreation Centre, Banff .
