  • WSQ September Speaker
    Maggie Ball


    When I began quilting as a hobby, I never imagined that it would become a profession and provide me with so many amazing opportunities to travel and share my passion with others. I love teaching and am known for my ability to work with quilters of all skill levels. It is great fun to see what each student brings to class and how they develop what I initiate. I always encourage my students to experiment and audition a variety of options. One of my favorite facets of quilting is the way any pattern may be presented in so many ways simply by the choice of fabrics, placement of different values and the orientation of block components within the block. Add onto this the numerous ways of arranging and setting the blocks plus borders and the creative possibilities for unique designs are endless.
    My most recent innovation is devising a template-free method for making Kaleidoscope blocks. This is easy and fun and does not require any special triangular rulers. The technique may be developed further by making large Kaleidoscope blocks, cutting them into nine pieces and switching the pieces to create the new Op-Art Kaleidoscope block.
    Quilting is awesome!
    Maggie's Lecture will be "Quilters Without Borders"
