Lecture/Workshops


Cathy offers several classes and lectures which can be tailored for your guild's needs. 


Lecture/Trunk Show Presentation
Cathy's lecture and trunk show feature many of her quilts, their stories and a humorous look at her life as a quilter.  She uses a Power Point presentation to illustrate tips and tricks for designing landscapes, drafting patterns on graph paper, sources of inspiration and her quilting adventures from Alaska to Wisconsin.  A brief overview of her technique using a tear-away foundation to piece quilts introduces quilters to a fast method of quilt top construction. This lecture can be modified to augment any scheduled workshops, or as a stand alone night of fun. (Fee is $200 with a workshop, $225 without. These fees are for 2018, previous prices and contracts will be upheld for 2017. ) 


Strip Applique Landscapes 
One Day Workshop

Turn your scraps into landscapes, no piecing required! This is a great class for beginners and for quilters who like landscape quilts but never thought they could make one.  Students may choose to purchase a kit or purchase my book Lovely Landscape Quilts at a greatly reduced price.  (Fabrics may differ from projects shown here.) Cathy’s fee is $450.  Click HERE for further details.
Strip Applique Projects


Strip Pieced Landscapes 
Two Day Workshops

Learn beginning strip pieced landscape techniques with this two day class.  I recommend buying kits for the class but students may choose to buy my book (Lovely Landscape Quilts), choose a beginning project from it and bring their own fabrics. (Fabrics may differ from projects shown here.) Cathy’s fee is $800 for two full days. Click HERE for further details. 

Examples of kits (above) and beginning projects (below).



Aspen and Maple Tree Trunks
3 Hour Workshop
If your guild members want to have fun, this short sweet class is the ticket! I supply all the markers, pastels, paints, crayons, etc. In 3 hours students will construct one very simple landscape on a whole cloth background and learn to shade tree trunks and draw simple saplings. This is a very fun 'freeing' class and introduces an easy technique for students wishing to add something special to their landscape quilts.  Kits are required. (Kits are $17) Cathy's fee is $225. 




Forest Scenes
One Day Workshop
In this one day class students will create a landscape featuring birch trees, background and foreground foliage. They will learn how to create a natural foreground, to cut out realistically shaped tree trunks, branches and saplings, and learn how to shade them with dye markers or pastels creating three dimensional effects. Cathy will supply markers and pastels for the students. Kits are required and range from $25 -$30. Cathy's fee is $450

    1. Hi Sherrill, I don't have one at this point. Sorry! I'm not teaching a great deal at this point, I'll be having a couple of lectures and 3 hour workshops here in Wisconsin, and maybe in South Dakota, but nothing is ironed out yet. You are in Texas, right?

    1. I'm doing the 3 Hour workshop in Racine at the end of August and I'm doing a presentation at Quilt Expo this fall. The Expo folks haven't decided on their teachers yet, but I did apply to teach the 3 hour workshop there too.

      I'm also doing the day presentation with the Madison quilters at the Attic Angels on the first of September. I can get you details if you'd like. :)

    1. Thanks! Perhaps a local quilt guild will bring me out there again. I taught in the Grass Valley, CA area about 6? years ago. I have a family out in Tacoma, WA too.

  7. Do you have a max number of participants for a one day workshop?

    1. I like 15 students, routinely have 20 and occasionally have workshops with 25! More students mean that I hustle from table to table all day. Usually once I get everyone going then each student works at his/her own pace and I'm there to watch over their shoulders and offer tips and advice, etc. :)

  8. Can you tell me what workshop you will be offering at the La Plata Quilter's Guild in Durango, CO on Oct. 13-15, 2016? My son lives in that area and I would love to attend one of your workshops while we visit him! Thanks, Marji

    1. I've been tentatively schedule with the Heart of Ohio Quilters Guild, so far we haven't signed a contract so I'm not positive we are still on, and I don't know where they hold their meetings. I should know something soon though!
