BPQ Program Thursday March 7
"Stash Lab: Simple Solutions for Scrap Quilts"
Tonya Alexander is a quilter, designer, and all-out fabric lover. Her quilt designs have been featured in many quilt magazines including: American Patchwork & Quilting, Quilts and More, Quiltmania’s Simply Moderne, Modern Patchwork, McCall’s Quilting, and more. She is the author of Stash Lab: Simple Solu-tions for Scrap Quilts, her first book with Martingale/That Patchwork Place. Tonya lives with her family in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, where there are more good quilting days and shades of green than she ever imagined.
Tonya’s lecture focuses on the projects in Stash Lab and on the three scrap equations she uses in many of her quilts. It will be a mix of Powerpoint presentation and sharing the real quilts.
