PQG Membership Meeting: 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Speaker: Valeria Hill
Valeria Hill began her own piecing and quilting journey in the mid 1990’s and became hooked. She has been sharing her piecing knowledge and turn-under appliqué technique at local quilt shops since 2000. Valeria bought her first longarm machine in 1999, her second in 2008, and has been quilting for herself and others since then. In 2006 she became a Gammill sales representative. Valeria began sharing her longarm knowledge by teaching at Machine Quilter’s Showcase since 2005. She taught this year at Quilt Odyssey and gets great pleasure from teaching and sharing. Valeria routinely enters her quilts into competition and has won at shows such as Machine Quilter’s Showcase, Quilt Odyssey, and Pennsylvania National Quilt Extravaganza and the NQA show. For the past several years, she has been doing fabric dyeing and using some of these fabrics in her piecing.
Upside down Applique with a Pattern
Valeria Hill will teach a class she calls “Upside down Applique with a Pattern”. This technique allows for precise applique and works well with fabrics other than cotton. She describes it as less time consuming than other applique techniques.
The only kit fee is $5.00 for the pattern.
