Instruction in traditional quilting, innovative piecing techniques, and creative design principles for every level of quilter
My studio is on the lower floor of our house and is where I relax, create, and work. I have been quilting for over 20 years and have found that teaching is what I enjoy most about quilting. So, for the past 10 years, I have been teaching both in my home studio and on location for guilds and groups.
I hope you will follow me on my quilting journey, as I muddle through quilts and life as a wife, mother, and quilter in Northern Ontario.
Teaching & Workshops
My classes occur at the intersection of traditional and modern quilting. This creative space is made possible through Deb Tucker’s new ruler series which establishes a firm foundation in traditional piecing techniques and uses innovative design tools to release traditional quilting from the conventions of complicated, strict, and often tedious patterns.
In this “Tuckerized” version of a traditional Carolina Lily wall hanging, there are no “y”-seams to sew and no need for paper piecing. Quilters will learn to work with the Carolina Lily block using Deb Tucker’s Wing Clipper 1 ruler and Studio 180 principles of making units larger and trimming to the exact size. With multiple techniques covered during this class, new design possibilities and exciting opportunities for creativity are opened once quilters master the primary construction methods.
