Pam Buda Lecture – Secrets of Professional Quilters Revealed!

September 24 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

This Power Point presentation is packed full of very useful information that will teach you to use alternative piecing methods for making units, as well as tips and hints relating to every aspect of quilting. Pam also shares secrets she’s gathered over years of trial & error, taking classes, and learning from what fellow designers and national teachers have shared with her.

The lesson begins with learning the “Make it larger – Trim it down” techniques.  Pam demonstrates step-by-step techniques for making units (such as Half Square Triangles, Quarter Square Triangles, Square-in-a-Square units, and Flying Geese) larger than they need to be so they can be trimmed down to be squared and the correct size.  These perfectly squared units go on to be perfectly squared blocks, then squared quilts that lay flat and go together easily!! Many, many designers and award winning quilters use these techniques and you can too!

There are also plenty of tips on a variety of subjects such as general pressing tips, pressing Four Patches and Pinwheels to lay perfectly flat, and how to correctly sew Connector Corners, accurate 1/4 inch seams, alternate sewing methods for the Corner Square Triangle units, how to hide flaws and errors, and so much more!

After watching the Power Point presentation, Pam will show more than 50 quilts to view up close and personal, all made with the techniques shown in the presentation.
