**The blocks you choose will be in order to spell your name.
**The blocks can be any size
**The finished quilt can be any size or shape.
**Blocks can be spelled out vertically, horizontally or staggered (see below)
**Write the names of your blocks on a piece of paper and attach it to the back of your quilt.

We are planning an outdoor meeting Saturday June 12 in Riverhead. Members will be emailed details on location and time. Social distancing and Covid protocols will be observed.
In this lecture, I tell my quilting journey, from the first quilt I remember seeing to becoming a quilting instructor/fiber artist. I also discuss my inspirations for quilt designs and how quilting has changed my life.
This class will show you how to do a very unique technique of curved piecing. Developed by your instructor, Marge Tucker, this is a more advanced class but continues the methods and ideas taught in her previous workshops. This workshop could also be a stand-alone.
These curved blocks give added movement and motion and work well with the blocks/creations made in the previous class(es) or with other abstract blocks.
Students will learn free-form curved cutting and curved piecing techniques
