Diane Knott 

Butterflythreadsquilting

 

I made my first quilt in 1997 while expecting my first child. In 2012, and many quilts later, I created the online pattern company and website called Butterfly Threads Quilting to distinguish myself from the other Diane Knott (who is a talented fabric designer in the quilting industry.) I have published over a dozen patterns, created three templates, been featured in Quilt Magazine, Primitive Quilts and Patchwork, Fons and Porter Easy Quilts, and the American Patchwork and Quilting Calendar.

In addition to traveling and teaching from her two books published by C&T, Scrap Quilt Secrets and Strip Quilt Secrets, Diane enjoys making custom quilts for hire and longarm quilting for others. Now that her nest is empty of children, it is filled with fabric!

Lecture: Nov. 19 – Strip Quilt Secrets

Workshop: Nov. 20 – Under the Mistletoe pattern (paper piecing and curves) Supply List

Learn the techniques for paper piecing and sewing curves for excellent results every time! Find out for yourself that curves are NOT scary! Suitable for confident beginners through advanced quilters. Table Runner version is included in this workshop. Covers basic flip and sew paper piecing as well as template sewing.
