Quilting class to be held in Cedarburg Nov. 16

    A one-day quilt-making class will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 16, at the Wisconsin Museum of Quilts and Fiber Arts in Cedarburg.
    Those attending will learn the quilt-making process and leave with a completed work of art for their wall.  
    Students will learn to hand piece a six-inch square quilt top, baste, hand quilt, sew a border and secure that quilt to a frame.
    The entire process will be done with a needle and thread. No sewing machines are required.
    Quilt tops made may include visible hand piecing, applique, embroidery, layering and an emphasis on playfulness and concept.
    Instructor Heidi Parkes will share detailed adaptations to scale the project up for future framed quilts.
    Parkes is a 2005 graduate of The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She taught at the Modern Quilt Guild’s QuiltCon 2016, 2017 and 2018 and has won awards for her handwork and improvisation.
    The fee is $160.
    The museum is at N50 W5050 Portland Rd.
