Modern Sampler Quilting Class

Modern Sampler Quilting ClassI am excited to announce that I will be teaching a Modern Sampler Quilting Class series at the Electric Needle in Madison, WI beginning in May!

The Mod Sampler is a series consisting of 4 classes, and we will make a quilt that features 7 quilt blocks (6 on the front and 1 on the back) from Tula Pink’s City Sampler Book, 100 Modern Quilt Blocks. You must buy the book for the class, and it is available with a discount at the Electric Needle if you enroll in the class. I designed the quilt layout, and I will teach you how to break out of your traditional quilting shell. Come learn my favorite way to improv, and explore some of the qualities attributed to the modern quilting movement: negative space, solids, pieced backs, and pieced bindings.

If you are new to quilting, this is a great class to get you started. This quilt is a quick finish, and I will help you through the process. The fourth and final class will be optional, as it will be for those students who would like help with making the quilt sandwich, basting, machine quilting (including free-motion quilting), and binding.

Pieced Quilt Back


  1. Yay!! Congrats! It sounds like a great class!

  2. I'm so proud of you. You will be a wonderful teacher.

  3. OMG! That is awesome! You are hitting the big time:-) If I was there I would enroll for sure...although you would certainly have your hands full with this quilting dummy! I temporarily dropped out of bloggyland, but I am back and will be checking out all that you have been working on and blogging about. Sew South looked like a blast from what I saw on Instagram:-)
