6:00 PM Zoom Meeting w/ Brita Nelson ”Now You See It, Now You Don’t. The Magic of Disappearing Blocks.”
Learn about the magic and beauty of disappearing blocks with this
interactive online lecture, demo and trunk show. Using 3 cameras, one on her and the quilts, one pointing straight down at the cutting mat, and one close-up on the quilts, she will be able to show you how easy it is to turn simple blocks into beautiful complex patterns. Using the Zoom format you will be able to ask questions for her to answer during the presentation. She will also show you how different block designs can be enhanced by color choices or slight modifications to make even more interesting full quilts.

6:00 PM Zoom Meeting w/ Barbra Eikmeier lecture, “It’s All in the Sashing.”
Join us as she will share a series of quilts and tops that feature blocks set with sashings and cornerstones. Some are simple and others are more involved with secondary designs created within the sashings and cornerstones. See side by side examples of the same setting and study how different they look based on the blocks and fabric choices. This Zoom lecture features approximately 25 quilts and tops in a mix of styles including appliqué and pieced quilts. Barbara is Zooming to us from Kansas. Read more about Barbara on her website at
