Want to have a great quilting weekend?? Perfect for Moderns!! I'm teaching in beautiful Frenchtown, NJ on May 19-20 at Courthouse Quilters.  Here's the info.  (P.S. - because it's a guild class, it is a huge bargain!)

May 19-20, 2012

There are still a few spots open for this exciting two-day workshop!
for registration and information email Carol Esch  cesch1041@gmail.com

Cinderella Quilts: Reinventing the UFO
Turn your rotary cutter into a magic wand! Wave it over your orphan quilt tops and blocks, make the first cut, and transform them into dazzling new work!
Take your old, unfinished and leftover pieces out of the drawer, bring them to class and be their "fairy godmother." We'll discuss, evaluate, brainstorm and experiment as you discover how to completely reinvent those stalled projects.
Magically turn them into original quilts you never imagined by adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing them. No math, just creativity! Amaze yourself! Give these old "dogs" new life and have fun at the same time.
