Kathleen Riggins Comes to Quilt Canada

Is there anything more exciting then getting to read about a quilter that inspires you? 
There is simply no way you won't be motivated to do long arm or mid arm quilting after your see what one of our instructors - Kathleen Riggins can do with a  machine!

In June, Kathleen is coming to Quilt Canada 2017 in Toronto ON to teach for four days. You don't want to miss this incredible opportunity. You can see her unique classes here.

We had the thrill of asking Kathleen a little about her quilting, read on to find out about this talented quilter. 

Tell us when you quilt, or what motivates you to do what you do.
I quilt as often as I can. I love every aspect of quilting, but particularly the actual quilting of my project. I love the difference that quilting can make to a quilt top, and seeing what it is all going to look like in the end, motivates me to keep quilting. 

Tell us a bit about one of your classes.

My Easy Quilting ,Stunning Quilts class is one of my favourites. We work on a “cheater panel” and talk about the ways I look at quilts to decide how they should be quilted. I share some of my favourite designs, and at the end of the day, you have a nearly finished project you can be proud of.

What is your favourite food?
Anything that I didn’t have to make or clean up after!

Below are all the classes Kathleen Riggins is teaching! Sign up today before you are disappointed!

Sometimes spending that little bit of extra time on a quilt can really make it special. Mark lines & shapes to create stunning negative spaces -- it might take some extra time, but turn out spectacular. It may be time consuming, but it’s not particularly difficult.
