Sophia DayI hope you all enjoyed the Quilt Show. I know I did. I heard so many positive comments about what a great show it was. We'll have a little celebration at the June 5th meeting to thank everyone for all of the hard work.

Also in June, our speaker will be Mel Beach and we'll have a 2 day workshop June 6/7 on free-motion quilting Mandalas. I'm so excited! This is the area I need to work on the most.

Our July meeting will be a picnic and then a break in August.

The year is flying by! I hope you're all stopping occasionally to enjoy it.

..Sophia Day, PTQG President

June Speaker Workshop
Magnificent Mandalas with Mel Beach
2-Day June 6 & 7

Mel BeachCome join us for a fabulous 2-day Workshop with Mel Beach.

Let’s add some zen to our free-motion quilting. We’ll warm up designing mandalas on paper, before learning how to use minimal marking to free-motion quilt a whole-cloth original mandala design. Watch your mandala bloom as you add layers of texture and color!

You will begin with warm up stitching trying out the various designs before applying them to an original mandala design. Ideally, you will come in with some previous Free Motion Quilting experience (ie. familiar with attaching your darning foot, lowering feed dogs and have dabbled in FMQing at home prior to class).

More pictures of Magnificent Mandalas are posted on Mel’s website:
