Two Classes with Liz Granberg-Jerome —

Liz Granberg-Jerome

Liz Granberg-Jerome, custom quilter, teacher, designer, and owner of Gypsy Dreamer Quilts, was born and raised in California, but considers herself a Kansan after moving to raise her three children here over 30 years ago. She started quilting in 2006 while caring for her elderly father and quickly made the transition from a lifetime of sewing to becoming passionate about quilting. Her quilts have a flavor all their own as she creates unique layouts and color play for one-of-a-kind quilts.

“Adventures with Sixty Degree Triangle Qulits” with Liz Granberg-Jerome — 2:00 to 3:30 pm

Join Liz as she takes you through her journey using 60 degree triangles to make kaleidoscopic hexies that produced a variety of quilts. Her journey touches on One Block Wonders, Stack-and-Whacks, and has evolved into her original design Hexified Panel Quilts, a hybrid that merges techniques learned along the way. Using panels to create kaleidoscopic quilts opened a whole new world of design and artistry as every quilt is completely different. These quilts will change the way you look at panels forevermore!

“Half Square Triangle Possibilities” with Jenny Doan — 4:00 to 5:30 pm

In this trunk show you will learn Jenny’s favorite ways to make half square triangles. Then she will fill your mind with ideas for how to make amazing quilts using half square triangles.
