Taught by Ashley Nickels
In this class, quilting expert Sue Nickels and her daughter Ashley present two fun projects in their preferred styles—Sue is a traditional quilter and Ashley is a modern quilter. Though they each used the same fabrics, their finished quilts have totally different aesthetics. Sue’s traditional quilt has a scrappier motif, which is covered in lush, machine-quilted feathers, while Ashley’s modern quilt is made up of clean, geometric shapes and criss-crossed diagonal quilting lines. No matter what your style, you will surely learn a lot about quilting from this mother-daughter team.
