Cheryl Brickey – Program – Meadow Mist Trunk Show

Cheryl is an engineer by day, writing patent applications for a textile company and a quilter by night. She currently lives in South Carolina with her husband, two elementary aged children, a cat, and a crazy Labrador. She enjoys all aspects of quilting, especially designing quilt patterns and quilt math.

If you want to take a look at her blog, you will find her latest finishestutorialspatterns, and popular yearly mystery quilt in the tabs at the top of the blog and on the sidebar.

Besides her blog, you can find her often on Instagram @MeadowMistDesigns and on Facebook.

October 15th – Workshop #1 – Cathedral Window Pin Cushion (3 hours)  Supply List

Cathedral windows are a classic quilt design and are a fun combination of origami-like fabric folding and sewing. In the workshop, participants will learn to make a cathedral window block and then turn it into a pincushion.

 

October 16th – Workshop #2 – Beginning Paper Piecing (6 hours)    Supply List

Foundation paper piecing is a great sewing technique to create interesting angles and perfect points. This beginner level paper piecing class will take you through the basics, from preparing the templates and fabric, to how to sewing finished blocks together.
