May 13 - 15, 2002
Linda Dixon from Boise, Idaho is returning again to teach for our guild. It has been about five years since her last visit and those of you who took her classes will remember her enthusiasm and special skill at thinking through the most efficient way to piece any block. She also does fabric trades in her workshops that have been very successful. It has been a while since we have had a teacher sho does basically traditional blocks. Linda is just the person who can show us how satisfying it is to work with a specific block pattern and watch a spectacular quilt emerge at the end of the day. She will teach a one-day class and a one and one-half day class. There will be fabric trades in both workshops.
The longer workshop (May 13 and 14) is called Holly Berry. This beautiful and dramatic Christmas project is an adaptation of a traditional block called Rose Garden in the diagonal set, with lattice and cornerstones and a pieced holly border. Because of the border, we are planning to have a little extra time for this class. It will start in the afternoon after our Northwest Quilters meeting. The quilt would also be just as beautiful in other colors.

Really Improved Nine Patch
The second workshop is entitled Really improved Nine Patch. This quilt is based on the Improved Nine Patch block, but Linda is reluctant to deal with templates in the conventional sense. The finished product looks like a 30's quilt, but it is assembled with a modern twist.
