Cynthia Brunz – “How to Turn Scraps into Head Turning Quilts”

Dayton First Baptist Church 300 Flower Lane, Dayton, Oregon

How to Turn Scraps into Head Turning Quilts Hi there! I'm Cyndy. I've been serious about quilting since around 2003. Even though I sewed with my grandmother when I was young, I really didn't start learning good techniques and habits until I started taking some classes and getting some difficult quilts under my belt. I love fabrics with lots of color so I tend to quilt toward the more contemporary spectrum. I am drawn to simple lines and allowing the colors and fabrics to do all the work. I think that is reflected in my work. After working for years…

Robin O’Neil – “Tick Tock … No Time for Stress”

Dayton First Baptist Church 300 Flower Lane, Dayton, Oregon

My name is Robin O‘Neil. I started making traditional machine pieces quilts in 1973. After several decades of matching points, limited color palates, 1/4 inch seams, I decided to abandon my pursuit of perfection. Now I make quilts without patterns or templates or rulers or seam guides. Sometimes I have an overall plan, but generally I just cut fabric with scissors and sew it back together. Surprise is a big part of the fun! I frequently make baby quilts but I am most partial to making things king size. AND I almost always hand quilt with red thread. Workshop with…
