"In the Dog House" Improv Piecing Workshop



Join Ann Magetteri for another all-day workshop. Do you tend to collect fabrics featuring certain animals, insects, flowers, etc? Ann is a dog person, maybe you are a cat person or love flowers... Select a focus fabric that represents the person for which you want to make this quilt (maybe that's you!) - but you don't have to limit your focus to a single topic, animal, plant, etc. Just choose the focus for your houses and join us in the classroom to see what develops! 

In the Doghouse quilts can be made completely from scraps and orphan blocks or consist of all new fabrics.  It’s an adventure.  There is no pattern, but there is a plan, of sorts. But here are no rules!  No two quilts will look the same; each will be a reflection of its maker.  Improvisation is a journey of creation, and Ann and Hip Stitch are ready to help you get started on that journey.

Bring your scraps for you and to share with your fellow adventurers... bring your lunch and/or snacks to share. Light refreshments will be provided. Come join Ann to just have fun and create!
