June 13, 2017 - Maxine Rosenthal, author and teacher will discuss "One Block Wonders", a "serendipitous approach to design. One piece of fabric does all the work because the fabric contains all the colors and design elements. You cut and sew one shape with triangles forming hexagons or octagons and then design with these kaleidoscopic blocks. Because the quilts feature one repeated block, design merely involves playing with colors and shapes within the kaleidoscopes" - as described by Maxine on her website.
