“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. They are in almost every quilt we make! The possibilities are endless! Come learn a dozen ways to make amazing designs using half square triangles!

If you’re planning to attend Preview Night, these trunk shows would be a great start to the evening!  Sign up for trunk shows, classes and events Here.
