Mel Beach – Aug 12 – 13

Webinar and online workshop

We’ve all been making a ton of quilt tops during our COVID “staycation”. Now we need some ideas for how we can finish them up by quilting them ourselves. Mel Beach to the rescue!

Mel Beach is a San Jose, CA-based quilt artist, teacher and lecturer, who breaks away from tradition by adding her own modern, beautifully textured and colorful twists. Mel will be with us, by free Webinar, on August 12. Her Webinar will be Free Motion Create-TV and Reality. OGQG members will receive an email Monday, August 10, with the Webinar link.

Mel will also be teaching us her Modern Free Motion Fillers & FUN! techniques at a virtual workshop. The workshop will be Thursday, August 13, from 9 am to 4 pm. There will be a one-hour lunch break at noon.

Here’s what Mel tells us about the class:
“Do you love the look of modern quilts but unsure how best to quilt all that negative space? In this workshop, I’ll share my favorite mark-free, modern quilting motifs involving C-curves, loop de loops, zig-zags, and door beads. We’ll explore how simple changes to each of the designs will yield all-new filler designs! This is a low-stress and super fun workshop that is perfect for quilters who are new to free motion quilting, as well as those looking to add new modern designs to their quilting repertoire. You’ll leave with new design ideas, tips and tricks for free motion quilting success, and the confidence to add beautiful, modern quilted texture to your modern quilt tops!

It’s another great opportunity. Please join us for a great day of learning and fun.

This workshop will be limited to the first 20 members who email and send me their payment. In the event we fill up, there will be a waiting list.

To enroll, you should first email me, pat.barton@verizon.net then send me your check, made out to OGQG, for $30. For your convenience, you may pay by credit card. You would need to call me with your credit card info and be instantly enrolled in the class. Note that there will be a $2 convenience charge on each transaction.
