Amanda Murphy Coming to the Quilters Loft!

Join us on June 27th at 6pm to meet  Amanda Murphy who is an author, fabric and pattern designer, and quilt artist known for her exuberant use of color and juxtaposition of modern and traditional motifs, patterns, and techniques. 

A graphic designer by training, Amanda's interests and experiences led her to quilting, an art that marries her passion for design with her enthusiasm for handwork.

She markets her own pattern line and designs quilting collections for Blend Fabrics, a subsidiary of Anna Griffin Inc.  

Amanda's first book, Modern Holiday, debuts at Market with C and T Publishing.

Saturday July 13, 10:30 to 4pm
Class Fee:  $45
Instructor:  Amanda Murphy

Use  an assortment of favorite fabrics to improvisationally piece a photo album or notebook cover that is unique to you!  This project is perfect for a gift for a friend (or yourself!) and makes great use of scraps.  If you have leftover pieces of embroidery or favorite feature prints feel free to bring them along and we’ll find fun ways to incorporate them into the design!  We’ll embellish the album with cutwork flowers and beads and maybe even experiment with new quilting motifs.  Whatever your style, bring your favorite fabrics and try something new!
