An Immersive Retreat Inserting curved elements into your quilt compositions gives you a technique-expanding mastery that changes everything!
In this workshop, youstart with the X Exercise Block — inserting a curved X into a patterned fabric. You move to the Centrum Quilt — inserting multiple curves into a gridded background to create a woven effect. Then you finish with the Mirror Quilt— a mind-bending composition that plays with curved shapes and symmetry.
Each exercise challenges you to think creatively as you learn new skills and develop your own designs.
The Venue La Conner Country Inn blends charm with contemporary comforts in the heart of historic La Conner. A few blocks away is the Northwest’s quilt museum in a grand mansion.
A wooden boardwalk winds along the Swinomish Channel, behind the downtown storefronts—perfect for refreshing morning and evening walks.
