Modern Hand Quilting with Aneesa Shami

Modern Hand Quilting is the final workshop in Aneesa’s Residency series. We’ll cover a brief history and evolution of quilting, with a focus on Wartime quilts, Modern quilting, and Art Quilts, with a brief insight into Appalachian/Rocky Mountain quilts and the Gee’s Bend phenomenon. Participants will then create a “micro-quilt” (approximately the size of one’s hand). Previous sewing experience is a plus, but not needed. More details via the button below.
