Program for July 10th – Carla Klop – Trunk Show

July 10 – Program – Carla Klop Trunk show, 6:30 p.m.

Carla Klop will be sharing her quilts and how she gets them done quickly and accurately.  She has developed methods of making common blocks just using a regular ruler.  She will be vending during the meeting too.  Friday, July 12th she will be teaching her shortcut techniques at Haphazard Quilting.  Class is $40 and you will see how all of her shortcuts are done and then have a chance to do one or two different techniques either by purchasing kit or bringing fabric from your own stash and buying patterns for $2.

Carla’s website (www.kitsbycarla.com) states:

The Path from Quilter to Designer

​​It is with great surprise that I find myself a quilt designer.  I am not an artist, can’t draw a straight line, can’t create something from a meaningful idea and therefore never considered I was a designer.  But after publishing my own ideas (Shortcut Sheets), creating a unique block (Talking Points), producing 12+ patterns for Northcott and having my first pattern published in a magazine – I can now humbly admit that I am.  Let me show you the path that took me from quilter to designer – and maybe find your inner designer.
