Quilt Lectures

  • Lecture: New Techniques From Old Magazines
    Jeannie shares with you a trunk show of new quilts using various techniques she has been saving from all her quilt magazines over the years. These are not your run of the mill techniques, but rather techniques that push you to try new things with a result of interesting features you don’t see everyday. 

  • Lecture: Choosing Fabrics For Your Quilt

The most frequent question in quilting is, “How do you choose your fabrics?”

In this lecture I will show you the path I follow when planning a quilt. Fabrics come in colors, scale, value, and style. I will demonstrate using my quilts along with fabric samples to help you visualize what works and what doesn’t. Learn to choose appropriately for the quilt that says “YOU!”

  • Lecture: Intro to Machine Quilting

This lecture gives a well rounded look at Machine Quilting, including sewing machine set-up, batting suggestions, tools, techniques, and suggested books.

This lecture whets the appetite for a not so new

way of getting all those quilt tops done.

  • Lecture: Fabric Treatments

This lecture demonstrated fun things you can do with fabric. This includes fabric twisting, iron out velvet, over dying, sea sponge painting, and foam and rubberstamping. After the lecture, guild members can try their hand at some of these methods.

  • Lecture: Intro to Bargello

This lecture is a good basic info session for practices needed for any quilt preparation., not only Bargello. Instruction for proper fabric prep includes preshrinking, pressing, straightening, and rotary cutting.


The “Two Ruler Method” for straightening the edge of your fabric will be demonstrated. Then tips for choosing fabric for Bargello will be given. Fabric flow in a colorwash style is Jeannie’s favorite. This lecture is a must for taking the class.

  • Lecture: Creating a Landscape Pattern When You Don’t Know How To Draw

Learn to take a simple landscape photo and turn it into your own personal quilt art! See a pattern created from a photo using and opaque projector, gridded paper, or just a plain photo copier. Then see how pattern pieces go together to create the quilt.
