7PM Eileen Daniels lecture and trunk show “Orphan Blocks with Sentimental Endings”.

This treasure is an example of one of the ways to use orphan blocks. I love using “found items” in creative ways, and these art quilts are showcased in a fun trunk show! Vintage blocks can be turned into modern marvels. There will be a few antique quilts with their stories, along with their inspired orphan block in a modern twist. Recently made  orphans are also included in the almost 30 items shown.

1-5PM  Doug Leko Workshop at Ebenezer

7PM  Lecture Doug Leko is not your average quilter. He has been quilting since he was 6 years old, a skill which he picked up in his mother’s quilt shop. He went on to found Antler Quilt Design at the age of 14, doing all of the designs and marketing while still a high school student. His work has been published in  McCall’s Quilting, Quiltmaker, American Patchwork & Quilting, and more. Though he’s still young, he has a lot of quilting experience and expertise to share with us.
