My quilts and I’ll be hitting the road Thursday for three lovely days on Lopez Island. After last spring’s Friday Harbor Retreat Anne of the island’s Quilter’s Studio asked me if I would come teach on Lopez and I’d have to be crazy to pass up an opportunity to go to the islands and teach.
Here’s Anne’s write up:
techniques for improvisational quilts June 5-6-7, 2015
Katie Pedersen, co-author of Quilting Modern, teaches workshops that focus on design and finding your own process. She places a heavy emphasis on the importance of color value when choosing fabrics and designing quilts. Improvisational techniques and a modern aesthetic inform Katie’s quilts.
Lecture and 2-day workshop $185.00
Saturday & Sunday June 6 + 7, 9-4 Port Stanley School
Learn two improvisational techniques; flip and stitch triangles (two variations) and gentle curves. Katie will inspire and guide you in creating a one of a kind quilt.
Friday evening June 5,
7-9 Lopez Island Golf Club Quilting Modern -Katie shares her perspective and quilting journey, and of course QUILTS! Stay for coffee and dessert following Katie’s presentation.
Treat yourself to a great weekend in good company on beautiful Lopez Island, WA

Two of my favorite workshops and time well spent with some lovely people. My friends work a wonderful farm and raise goats on the island so I also have an opportunity to catch up and hopefully eat some delish goat’s milk fudge. I’m looking forward to going back to Friday Harbor to teach at the fall retreat too.
Hope you all have a great week. I’m pretty thrilled that school’s almost out.
