Lectures and Quilt Trunkshow Presentations

  • A Journey of a Quilter: Threads that Bind: With over 40 quilts to share (including a few of my own antique collection), viewers are taken through a personal journey from quilter, teacher to designer. It is truly a ride of discovery from childhood’s fascination with quilts, the love of fabric, friends and definitely the craft. (45 minutes – 1 hour).

  • Settings & Borders: Are you ready to set those blocks into a design of your own? The importance of balance in a quilt’s visual space, how to keep it simple when decoding the math and some basic rules of thumb of quilt designing. Getting it all together in a unique and personal way is key to Sherri’s distinctive teaching style – there is always a way to process your creative thoughts and ideas into a finished project just let your imagination soar! Includes a multi-page handout for all.With over 35 quilts to demonstrate with. (This lecture is not easy to keep under 45 minutes and requires more concentrated thinking from the audience).

Border Creek Workshops

I am a hands-on teacher with many years of teaching experience. My classes focus on mastering solid techniques, understanding the quilt design and most importantly taking the mystery out of the quilt making process so quilters will have confidence to complete the projects. I strive to provide the very best in detailed, illustrated instructions with Border Creek Station patterns and most importantly to make the classroom fun & relaxed.

All Border Creek Station Workshops include the importance of perfect seam allowance, trimming to tidy techniques and understanding basic ‘quilter’s math’ to adding pieced borders & up-sizing so that it will work. Additional tools, where recommended are optional but will make the job simple and perfect and will be taught. Traditional or additional techniques are reviewed & taught as well, were applicable.

The BCS pattern that is being taught during the workshop is required for the workshop. An original copy of the pattern is included in the workshop cost for each participating student. Fabric requirements and recommended supply lists will be provided.

Any Border Creek Station pattern makes a great workshop with lots ot learn and explore. The following are great followups to my presentations. Please feel free to discuss your groups’ needs for a workshop designed specifically for you.

Miss Lacie’s Promise
A very interesting quilt for any fabrics - wonderful as a scrap quilt, civil war fabrics or made with beautiful batiks. As the cuts are 2-1/2” and 1-1/2” strips, it would be easy to use Jelly Rolls and Honey Buns for scrappy stars from a fabric line – so simple!
