DeLoa Jones www.deloasquiltshop.com 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM (6 Hour Class) Skill level: intermediAte This Is A Hands-On Longarm Class These advanced designs are for the experienced quilter. In fact it usually takes a while for someone to figure out how you did them. I take a background filler stencil such as crosshatching. clamshell, or clouds and use it as a guide for freemotion. It is such a cool concept. Background designs such as interlocking circles, twist, flaming clamshells all become easy and unique. The really cool thing about this class is every time I teach it the students come up with even more ideas. Let me introduce you to this technique and see what wonderous things you can imagine.

4012 - Interlocking Hexagons
Marti Michell www.frommarti.com 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM (6 Hour Class) Skill level: Confident Beginner Fall in love with hexagons! One tool does it all! Cut the hexagons and the strips that create the woven framework with the same hexagon tool. Learn a great way to showcase fabric, sew partial seams and join rows of hexagons. To cover more territory with fewer pieces, the hexagon we will use is almost as big as an 8 1/2 by 11 standard size piece of paper. Coincidentally, that size is perfect for showcasing big beautiful fabric designs. (Everything we talk about can be applied to any size hexagon so if big hexagons arent your thing, come along and work on smaller sizes.) Think: Asian, Big Bold Contemporary prints, Large Novelties, Toile or other vignette designs. This could be a variety of collected fabrics on the SAME theme or possibly one fabric with many different scenes or motifs. If you have collected Asian prints, for example, and still do not know what to do with them- this is the perfect class. Sewing Machines Provided By Babylock Supply List: Downloadable PDF

Dawn Cavanaugh www.dawncavanaugh.com 1/24 - Thursday 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM Longarm Lecture Demonstration When working with a quilt set in a frame, quilting the side borders presents some new obstacles when you cannot see the entire border at one time.

Even though you may still choose to quilt your borders as you roll ahead, this method allows you to see the entire border at once along your frames length, so that you can plan how your design will meet in the corners without trying to guess where (or how) youll come out in the end!

In the 1950s, both Phillip and Walter Hoffman were championship surfers and their surfboards decorate the warehouse walls. They combined their passion for surfing and travel with unusual printing processes to produce tropical florals, surfing scenes, beach life and underwater settings in their fabrics. Hoffman Fabrics were often used for shirts for Tom Selleck on the 1980s TV series Magnum, P.I. We will have the opportunity to learn more about designing and printing this beautiful fabric while we tour the facility. Our next stop for the day is Flying Geese Quilt Shop (www. flyinggeesefabric.com) in historic Old Town Tustin. The shop has a great selection of both reproduction and modern fabrics, as well as their special hand dyed felted wool. You are sure to find inspiration and a cup of coffee. Lunch at the Souplantation is always fun. Something for everyone! Soup, salad, and some yummy desserts! Lunch is not included in the tour price. After lunch well visit the Kellogg House, designed by Hiram Clay Kellogg, Built in 1898 it is set amid extensive floral gardens and citrus trees. With its asymmetrical shape, faux tower, and prominently decorated dormer, the house is a late example of Queen Anne-style Victorian architecture. The interior of the house has several unusual features that reflect Kelloggs keen interest in ships. Most prominent is the mast, salvaged from a ship in San Francisco that stretches from floor to ceiling in the center of the house. The spiral staircase surrounding it features a landing overlooking the oval dining room that is reminiscent of the bridge of a ship. And the wooden-railed circular opening in the attic floor, through which the mast extends to the roof, suggests a ships crows nest. Quilters Garden (www.quiltersgarden.org) is our last stop for the day. Located in Anaheim, this shop has a large selection of fabrics. Whatever youre looking for, youre bound to find it here. Batiks, brights, flannels, reproductions, solids and lots of blender fabrics. They have a nice selection of current book titles and numerous patterns with many samples made and hanging in the store.

He and his family moved to Los Angeles in 1944 where he restarted his company, focusing on fabric for clothing. In the 1980s the company began to market fabric for the growing quilting community. Today they operate two separate design studios, each one generating fabrics specific to the quilting and manufacturing customer. Robert Kaufman also employs a large family of talented signature artists that supply innovative exclusive collections to the line. Robert Kaufmans sons are still involved in the business their father began along with their sons and cousins. Robert Kaufman Fabrics offers an extensive supply of cotton prints, novelty fabrics, yarn-dyes and solids, covering a full assortment of woven fabric offerings such as poplin, twill, denim, corduroy, linen, canvas, crepe, voile, lawn, satin, georgette, flannel, organza, chenille, stretch wovens, plaids, stripes, etc. After our morning tour of the Robert Kaufman studios youll be ready for lunch at the world famous Los Angeles Original Farmers Market.

The cost of a written appraisal is $50 per quilt and a verbal evaluation is $25. Please contact Julia Zgliniec (rzglini1@san.rr.com) for those wishing to schedule an apprasial. Details for appraisals of quilts hanging in the show will be mailed with acceptance letters. Please note: fees are subject to change.
