The lectures to be presented are:


LocoMotion - Sun., July 28, 9-10:30 am 

Ricky's method for designing and piecing contemporary quilting designs that feature flowing and swooping curves and often incorporate the element of transparency. The process is precise even though you'll learn a method that doesn't involve accurate quarter- inch seams. $35

The lecture offers an exciting array of methods, surprising techniques, and tips that every quilter

will want to know. It's eye-opening and jaw- dropping! 

Ricky will also include the overview and guidance for making a Papaw's Choice quilt. Learn the heartwarming story of Ricky's dad (a quilter) and this simple but inspiring quilt that is easy and addicting to make. $35
