Article in PebbleCreek Post March 2018 by Marlene Kuskie
Members of the PebbleCreek Quilters are always seeking new opportunities to learn new skills and express their creative talent. The continuing education programs are scheduled weekly this winter and spring. As members, the attendance is free and quilters provide their own materials. Each year, the variety of new techniques/skills and use of new tools/equipment has increased the number of programs that are taught by the members of PebbleCreek Quilters.
Saturday, January 27, members met to learn to create wallets and the many patterns that lend themselves to creative changes by the quilter. With encouragement from teachers, Pam Bramfuhr and Sue Whaples, students expressed their own creative talents with fabric.
The members are also busy right now completing projects for the spring quilt show, The Art of Quilting, which will be Sunday, March 18 in the Creative Arts Building. Free Admission will provide a wonderful way to see the talents of the membership on a Sunday in PebbleCeek.
A YEAR IN REVIEW - MARCH 2018
2017-2018 Log Cabin Challenge issued by Kathleen O'Connell
Log Cabins and Beyond
This year the familiar log cabin pattern is presented to the quilters of PebbleCreek as a challenge project for the year 2017 .
There are many examples of traditional variations as well as more contemporary layouts. Variation in settings, courthouse steps, whitehouse steps,sunshine and shadows are some of the more traditional settings.
Changes in color palettes and new fabric designs gives a new twist to log cabin quilts. Wool, silk, cotton fabric have all been used previously. Foundation piecing, strip piecing and more recently paper piecing are techniques used to build the log cabin.
Think of the basics. How do you build a house or block.. start with a center, then start building with logs all around or do your own design using same idea of logs.
