Countdown Oregon Summer Quilt Expo

Veronica and Jaggie are a week away from the start of the Oregon Summer Quilt Expo! 

Come hear Veronica's lecture, "Take a Walk on the Wild Side" at the Oregon Summer Quilt Expo in Redmond, OR  July 11 - 14!  She will have multiple lecture times so be sure to plan your schedule so you can attend one.

Join her for this great trunk show where we'll pass around approximately 50 quilts all made using fusible web and The Appliqué Pressing Sheet. You won't believe that these wildlife quilts, wild flower quilts and wild and wacky chickens and crows are all made using this easy technique. There will be a short demo on the process and lots of tips and tricks to get these amazing results for your quilts. She will talk about the tools she uses and how you too can create beautiful quilts.
