Foreign Currency

September we will be discussing strip quilting. Modern quilting seems so geometric at times, and we'll focus on this avenue during this meeting. Here's a sneak peek at one of the quilts we'll be sharing.

A New Beginning In August

Welcome to Lehi's new Modern Quilt Group, sponsored by Broadbents. JoyLyn Rigby & Kristin Barrus will be leading our group's meetings every third Saturday at 930am, beginning in August. And this is the challenge quilt we will start with. You can make this exact quilt, or use its basic principles to see what your strips will turn into!
$30 Membership fee includes:
  • First 6 months of meetings
  • Bag of fabric strips to make your own Stacked Coins quilt + 15% off your broadcloth for this quilt
  • Free binding when your Stacked Coins quilt top is finished and shown
  • 15% off all Quilt Shop items on the day of meetings
  • Free in-class block patterns
  • Free make-and-takes for gift ideas
  • Demos of quilt patterns, ideas, and books
And here's our first 6 months schedule:

August - Intro to Modern Quilting; meet the group, bring your own quilts to share, see a demo of Stacked Coins + examples of traditional quilt blocks made modern

September - Holiday Strip Examples; 2 different ways to strip quilt in style, plus receive free binding for Stacked Coins if your finished top is shown

October - Raw Edge Methods; use circles and wonky shapes to create pictures in your quilts
