Old Quilts Workshop ..... with BETSY KOSS from BOYNE CITY
Betsy says quilt history is a passion of hers. She loves to investigate old fabrics and vintage blocks matching them to currently available reproduction fabrics to make a quilt. She has been gifted vintage blocks by friends and buying them at antique fairs and now has a backlog of quilt tops and blocks to show.
She considers herself a traditional quilter but often takes antique blocks and puts them in unusual settings designing her own quilts. She has been teaching how to mark quilts, how to fix old quilt tops to retain their value, and various quilting techniques BIG STITCH hand quilting will also be taught as part of the workshop.
You will learn how to use your old blocks, unfinished tops and vintage quilts in a quilt. If your stymied and do not know what to do Linda and the other students will help you realize the possibilities of your blocks. Linda's workshop is a wonderful opportunity to learn about designing a quilt without the use of a pattern.
