Lectures & Workshops

If you are a shop owner or program coordinator, please do not hesitate to contact me
for more information. I am also happy to customize a lecture or workshop.



Trunk Show and Q&A
In this upbeat interactive lecture, where audience participation is highly encouraged, Kristy will share how she has embraced the Modern Quilting aesthetic with its ever-changing; yet characteristic style. Her trunk show is filled with a plethora of quilts from her first (made in 1994) to her most recent, as well as items she has received in various swaps through the years.  Want a glimpse into her studio? She will also bring along several modern quilting books and stacks of fabric that have inspired or captured her attention.  Interested in her patterns? She always brings along copies of her self-published patterns for those who wish to purchase them.



Bag It Up Improv
This workshop is a great way to create unique blocks and/or a quilt top, using improvisational techniques that many quilters shy away from.  Students will learn that sometimes adding a little structured chaos into your life is a good thing. No Quilt Police allowed!

Modernized D9P & Using Negative Space in your Quilts
The Nine Patch is one of the first blocks that a quilter learns to make; yet don't take this block for granted.  This workshop is a great introduction to using negative space, whether through building a block or composing a quilt.  With your new-found appreciation and knowledge, you can create something entirely new from something beloved.

Tipsy Triangles
This "tipsy" take on a seemingly simple block will create lots of excitement as you build interchangeable pieces.  This is a great way to turn a ho-hum block into something more magical. You will learn how to make the “tipsy triangle” block, and walk away with enough blocks to make a baby sized quilt, and the knowledge to build a larger quilt using modern layouts.
