Trash Bag Quilting with Diane Herbort
Saturday, February 9, 2019
10:00 am - 4:30 pm, ½ hour lunch break
Create your own version of one of Diane’s signature techniques. Bring your fabric scraps and any odds and ends of lace, trims, yarns, buttons, and sequins. Learn how easy it is to create wonderfully textured and quilted fabric while learning the basics of free motion quilting. This is also a great chance to experiment with your machine’s built-in pattern stitches. The embellishments will become part of the finished fabric without sewing them on individually! This is an excellent class for those who did not do well in traditional machine quilting classes. Start a small Valentire quilt (or you may wish to choose Easter, Halloween or Christmas) or make a piece of Trash Bag quilted fabric that can be cut into the fronts of six Valentine cards. Diane will supply fabric versions of her vintage post cards (students will choose a postcard design ahead of time) to serve as the focal point of their quilt.

Diane is a nationally-known quilter/fiber artist and teacher known for inventing her Trash Bag Quilting technique as well as Crazy Quilting, ribbon embroidery, quilted garments, and more. Old postcards, buttons and bits of lace often become a part of her work. “I think of my quilts and collages as being sister artworks. They are all assembled from the same things: textiles, paper, embellishments and memories,” says Diane. Visit her website
