Marilyn Foreman, Kaleidoscope of Quilts — Rotate and Create!
January 22, 2018, 6:30 p.m., Textile Center
Marilyn Foreman of Quilt Moments will share her love for designing pieced quilts that look complicated yet include basic piecing techniques. See how she lets the fabric elements do the work to create stunning results. Whether it’s including easy four-patch kaleidoscopes made from a large print in the block centers, rotating simple block units made with batiks, using unique ways to show off panels, or using the popular Twister tools (she’s co-owner at TwisterSistersDesigns.com, the new home of the twister tools), you will find all her techniques addictive and fun!
Marilyn lives in a suburb of St. Paul, MN with her husband and three kids and started her pattern company in 2006. As a busy mom she finds it challenging to make time to quilt so she uses every moment she can find…thus Quilt Moments.
Over the past 10 years she has published over 50 patterns, a book titled “Kaleidoscope Symphony,” filmed a Craftsy video class called “Quilted Kaleidoscopes” and has been published in several quilt magazines. With a background in analysis, she really enjoys the challenge of making her pieced patterns as versatile as possible so they all include a variety of sizes and fabric options.

In addition, Rose Allen will share the exciting lineup of workshops and lectures coming for the Minnesota Quilt Show, June 14th-16th — registration for non-members starts on February 1.
