2011 Special Guest Celebrity




                        David Taylor - David Taylor Quilts
David Taylor was born in Peterborough, New Hampshire, in 1963. As a Navy brat, he had the opportunity to live in many
parts of the United States, attending high school and college in the Tampa Bay area of Florida. He currently makes his
home in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, where he began his journey into the quilting world in 1999. Since then he has
been the recipient of the Fairfield Master Award for Contemporary Quilt Artistry from the International Quilt Association
(2006), the Brother Machine Workmanship Award from the American Quilters Society (2008) and has twice received Best
of Show honors at the Spring International Quilt Festival in Chicago (2007, 2008). In the summer of 2008, David held a
solo exhibit of his work at Les Jardins de Magali in Provence.

David’s quilts, crafted by hand and meticulously quilted on his Bernina 160 home machine, achieve a realistic effect
though his fabric choices. Thread ‘painting’ is the only embellishment added to his work. His threads of choice are
variegated cottons by Sulky Blendables, and his preferred batting is Warm and Natural.

when the technique comes into play.

uses the famous Option 1, Option 3 flying geese and Option 4 half-square triangles. The block has 121 pieces! But, don't
be afraid, you will not have to compromise any accuracy or speed.

Due to the ease of the Square in a Square® system, only 11 basic squares are required for each block. During class, you
will learn the Square in a Square® technique that eliminates the triangle hassle normally associated with cutting and
sewing of multiple pieced blocks. You will also enjoy learning professional pressing and rotary cutting techniques and will
be amazed at the speed and accuracy of this method.

Bring to class: thread, rotary cutter & mat, basic sewing supplies, stiletto, Square in a Square® Original Ruler (or new
Mini Ruler R-5), Abby’s Schoolhouse pattern book.

Fabric Amounts- (this is the amounts needed if you want to make the complete quilt)
6 ½ yd. Muslin or light background
16 fat quarters of red – brown – blue

(Notice: Label and bag all fabric for class. Strips are cut selvedge to selvedge)

Cutting (for one block)- this is the amount that will be required for class
Each block can be size and color complicated. I think it is best to cut and sew each block individually. The quilt shown has three
blocks across and four down for a total of 12 - 151/2" cut blocks. Just repeat in the color combination you like. These cutting
steps coordinate with the sewing steps. There are no cutting instructions for Step 4 or Step 8. In class, we will work on one
block.

Barbara’s Reverse sculpting technique makes it simple that anyone can sculpt, you don’t have to have any particular

Santa’s and created techniques to enable you to sculpt one in no time at all.
This 2 hour class will guide you through the reverse sculpting techniques that Barbara developed and has taught all over
the country. It makes it a much quicker way to learn to sculpt and enables you to sculpt a Santa head in one day using
super Sculpey clay (we will bake a sample head so that you will know what to look for and what to do with it afterwards).
The class will also focus on the how to’s, such as; how to attach the head to an armature, how to sew the clothing using
patterns or how to use toddler clothing and shoes to make your collectable Santa. Seeing is believing! Barbara will
actually build the Santa in the classroom to show you how easy it is. The latter part of the class will be a discussion of
what makes a Santa a collectable and what makes him an heirloom. This class encourages discussion on what materials
can be used, and bouncing ideas off of the teacher and each other. Students will receive a hand out of descriptions and
ideas. This is an empowering class... Don’t miss out!

               Debora Konchinsky – Critter Pattern Works
Debora Konchinsky has been an artist since she was a child. She was always interested in animals. Writing was a
secondary specialty. In college, she used animals as her themes for many projects as she worked toward her BFA
degree in Fabric Design. After working in the retail sales as a dress buyer, getting married and having a son, she started
working again with animal subjects for her new found love: quilting and appliqué, in particular. In the 1980’s there were no
animal appliqués that had any detail or personality. As she explored appliqué, everything clicked. She developed her own
style and then pushed it into uncharted waters. In 1988, she met a quilt shop owner who helped her get started writing
and publishing her unique patterns. In 1989, Debora’s company, Critter Pattern Works, was born. In 1991, Debora’s
husband, Paul, joined her in the business as marketing maven. His expertise in marketing, his major in college, was and
is, a great help. They started exhibiting at craft, sewing and quilt shows. Their business has taken them to all across the
US, and to England, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand where Debora has taught workshops and given lectures.

In 2008, Debora developed videos which teach newbies how to machine appliqué which can be found on her website,
www.critterpat.com under the button How to Appliqué on the homepage. In 2009, she started her blog:
www.critterpat.blogspot.com in which she explores appliqué and design through her eyes.




                   WORKSHOP
Get over you Fear of Appliqué! LIMIT 18
Fri. Jan 14th 12:30 pm – 3:30 pm
$45 WOK-26
CLASSROOM: The Murray (At the Courtyard by Marriott-located across the street from the Cox Convention Center)

Learn raw edge and satin stitching appliqué with a pattern designer who loves these techniques. Choose a pattern from
Critter Pattern Works line at www.critterpat.com and bring it to class with at least two animals cut out, marked and fused
to a background ready to sew.

Bring to class:
Sewing machine in good working order with an open toed foot, and a darning foot, extension cord and/or power strip.
 A Critter Pattern Works pattern of your choice, basic sewing supplies, scissors, marking pencil or chalk, fusible like
Steam-A-Seam lite (we have it on our website and at the booth), tear away stabilizer (enough to go under your appliqués),
threads (rayon preferable) at least 5 shades darker or lighter than your appliqués, fabrics for two blocks with animals cut
out, marked with the detail lines, and fused to the backgrounds. The backgrounds need to be 2" larger on all side, than
the appliqués.

When you are choosing fabrics, pick ones that read more as a texture rather than specific images like hearts or frogs. If
we have enough time, we could also explore machine quilting, and signing you name free hand on the sewing machine.
Bring a couple of scraps of fabric and batting to work on this, too.

PLEASE don't wait till the last minute to order. A PDF pattern is a good choice if you are under the wire. You won't have
to wait for the mailman. I would rather ship your order than spend class time to pass out orders.

Appliqué is my Passion
Thu. Jan 13th 11:00 am – 12:00 pm $8 SOK-42
Fri. Jan 13th 11:00 am – 12:00 pm $8 SOK-52

Debora will be presenting a short history of her experiences with animals in appliqué. Come see how she evolved from
simple techniques to more complex ones. With twenty years’ experience in designing appliqué patterns for quilters, she
has gone from using the sewing machine to get things done quickly, to the present day when she is doing more and more
elaborate handwork. She can draw with a needle and thread. Now she can draw with wool fibers.

$45 WOK-5
CLASSROOM: The Hefner/BERNINA OKC (At the Courtyard by Marriott-located across the street from the Cox
Convention Center)

Is this jacket really made from a sweatshirt? This is the most commonly asked question at Moonlight Designs. The
answer is: Yes! This beautiful jacket uses the sweatshirt for the jacket base and the pattern pieces. You will be using
batik fabrics for this jacket because they fray less than others. This jacket has freeform cutting and NO PIECING! We will
be using your decorative stitches and some couching to bring this great jacket to life! Bring note-taking material because
Jerri has a wealth of information on wearable art and proclaims to know just about every short cut around!

Please check out my new website! www.moonlightdesignquilts.com

Bring to class:
Crazy Curves Jacket Pattern (available in class for ½ price of $5.00)
One Sweatshirt with Set-In Sleeves
-should be your regular size or one size larger (does not need to be high quality and can be an old used one too) - but not
too thick. If you decided not to line the jacket – it will need to be a fairly new sweatshirt.
    Please have your sweatshirt cut apart per the instructions on 2nd page of this supply sheet!

Kits will be available in class for $45.00. There will be several color ways to choose from in Batiks. The kits will
also include some yarns for couching. I will also bring some lining fabrics – if you choose to line your jacket – 2
½ Yard pieces will be $22.00. You can also check out the website to see some options. As it gets closer to
January the number of color kits will increase with what comes in December.

Neutral Thread for sewing Jacket together (I would bring black, white, beige, gray)
Decorative Rayon Threads (bring several colors, I will bring some to in case you need something different)
Clear Monofilament Thread
Optional 22”–24” Separating Zipper (I will have some in class for sale if you want to wait)

Rotary Cutter & Mat
6 X 24 Ruler

Straight Pins

** Sewing machines with ¼” foot, open toe foot, and walking foot. New Machine Needles (regular sewing like 90/14) are

Prewash sweatshirt.
Preparing Your Sweatshirt:
Using scissors or rotary cutter—cut off ribbing at the bottom edge of the sweatshirt.

Hold sweatshirt up by the shoulder seams allowing it to hang perfectly straight. Lay it carefully down onto a flat ironing
surface. Iron across the body and put good creases in what would normally be side seams. Carefully fold shirt in half
matching the shoulders, neckline, and sleeves right sides together. Iron well making another crease right down the center
of the body. Open back up and using scissors cut up the Front Only on that creased line -from the bottom edge to the
neckline. Leave the back as one piece!

Remove the ribbing from the neckline and sleeves using the same method as above.

Remove the sleeves. Cut the underarm seams so that the sleeve now lays flat. Press.
Cut the shoulder seams on the remaining body. Lay shirt on a flat surface and cut away the front panels from the back at
the creases on the sides of the body that you ironed previously.

You should now have 2 fronts, 1 back, and 2 sleeves.

Author’s Note:
At this point—I basted the sweatshirt back together using a 1/2” seam and tried it on. I wanted to check the fit and to
check the sleeve length. I know many people who make beautiful wearables and never wear them because they don’t fit.
I think that this is an important step—but you can skip it if you want. If the jacket is only slightly too large—use a 3/4”
seam allowance. If it is much too big—you will need to cut it down—but be careful—once you cut you can’t put it back! I
found that you can cut the outside edges of the front and the back by following the same shape as the original
sweatshirt—I took about 1/2” off the front sides and both sides of the back while still maintaining the same shape of the
armhole. Baste the jacket together again and try it on. You’ll be surprised that the sleeves will fit better too. Once you
figure out your size then you can go buy more of that same sweatshirt—because I’m going to be making many more
sweatshirt patterns that I’m sure you are going to like!

                    Patricia Simons - Quilter's Rule
Patricia represents the family owned and operated business, Quilter’s Rule, and attends over 20 quilting shows a year.
Shortly after joining Quilter’s Rule, she learned to quilt. While attending a WonderCut retreat (held by Alice Walter and
Deb Hopkins, the designers of the WonderCut Ruler and the WonderCut Triangle Ruler), she completed her second quilt,
a Lone Star quilt, usually on display in their booth at quilt shows, and discovered the joy of quilting. As Quilter's Rule
developed the Design Tools line, Patricia has developed a knack for designing different quilting patterns to fit each
individual quilt. She demonstrates the techniques at shows and has begun teaching a class called “Unlocking Your
Creativity (The Key is Templates)”. She has instituted “Design Basics 101”, which are step-by-step instructions using
design templates to create your own patterns, hosted on the internet at www.quiltersrule.com. She looks forward to
sharing her techniques to help you develop your own style and expertise.
