Denyse Schmidt: The Proverbial Quilt class



The Proverbial Quilt class will use Denyse's pattern inspired by early "talking" quilts. These quilts often featured quotes from the Bible, or commemorated public events. My version is an amalgamation of proverbs and fortunes from cookies, and the original pattern includes the entire alphabet so you can "customize, personalize, editorialize or memorialize. You can even (if you must) dispense advice. And they can sleep on it.

Other classes for our Denyse Schmidt weekend include:

A Different Stripe on Friday, 2/7/20

The Proverbial Quilt on Sunday, 2/9/20

She has traveled all over the world as a quilt teacher and makes her home in Connecticut, where she caters to the every whim of her cats.
