Participants will work with the patterns from Kathie?s book Roads to Everywhere, Ladders to Heaven and can use any of the patterns, which are based on Jacob's Ladder and the other ?Roads to? blocks, e.g., California, Oklahoma, etc. Participants may also choose to design their own quilt based on one of these blocks. We will focus on quick, easy, and accurate techniques for building these traditional quilts. (The registration form for this workshop is not yet available, but will be posted on the guild website.

Working with the basic shapes Equidistant Cross, Circle, Triangle, Square, and Spiral, each participant will design a small wall hanging unique to themselves. This wall hanging can be based on either traditional or non-traditional techniques. In the process of creating your piece, you may learn something about what motivates your creativity. No sewing machine is required since participants will work with the instructor to design their quilts in the workshop and will sew them at home.
