    Now You See It. Now You Don't. The Magic of Disappearing Blocks - Brita Nelson

    NOTE: This is a Zoom only meeting

    Learn about the magic and beauty of disappearing blocks with this interactive online lecture, demonstration, and trunk show. Brita Nelson will show you how easy it is to turn simple blocks into beautiful complex patterns. She will also show you how different block designs can be enhanced by color choices or slight modifications to make even more interesting full quilts.

    Brita Nelson is an award-winning quilt artist and teacher with over 35-years experience.  She was a chemical engineer in her previous life and brought that passion for knowledge and improvement into her quilting endeavors. Since retiring from the corporate world, she has devoted herself to sharing her love for quilting by writing, speaking, demonstrating, and teaching.  With her website,, she explores two of the most powerful words in the English language. “What If.” In this lecture, she does a deep dive into “What If” with a variety of disappearing blocks.

    In her lecture and trunk show, Colleen shares an eclectic collection of quilts. She'll show a few made by her great grandmother, grandmother, and mom and then moves on to her own quilting and designing. 

    Colleen has been sewing since 8th grade. It made sense for her to try quilting since her mom and sister were doing it. When her sons got older, she began designing and creating with and on fabric.

    Scrappy Applique with Kristie Naranjo

    Note: This is a Zoom only meeting

    Scrappy Applique is a fun and different applique technique where you collage your leftover scrap fabrics to create a one-of-a-kind project. In this presentation, Kristie will share an overview of the Scrappy Applique process from start to finish and end with a trunk show of different examples of projects to inspire quilters to create their own.

    Kristie is an international quilt teacher certified in teaching Scrappy Applique as well as Color Confidence for Quilters. Kristie has been sewing since she was 8 years old but didn’t start quilting until she was in her forties. Her sisters and mother are all teachers, so she combined her teaching DNA with her passion for quilting and found her true love as a quilt teacher. Kristie lives in Orange County, California, with her husband and a very chatty cat named Pebbles.

    You will only get the Zoom link for general meetings if you register BEFORE the day of the event! Don't delay.... register today.
