Whole Circle Studio Workshop & Lecture

We are thrilled to be hosting Sheri Cifaldi-Morrill from Whole Circle Studio at the end of September.


Presentation/ Trunk Show: Content, Concepts & Quilts: Approaching Quilting as a Graphic Designer.

Time: September 27th at 7:00 pm

Our own life experiences can play a big role in our work as quilters. In this presentation and trunk show Sheri will share how she applies her graphic design training and practices to design quilts while showing a selection of her award-winning quilts. Come hear, see, and be inspired as Sheri describes her creative journey and process.

Workshop: Double Friendship Knots: Combining Foundation Paper Piecing with needle turn applique

Learn how to make the Double Friendship Knot block (22” x 22”). This block incorporates foundation paper piecing on a machine and hand needle-turn applique. In the morning, students will trust their intuition and rapidly piece their “scrappy knots” on a sewing machine with paper as a foundation. In the afternoon, we’ll slow it down and kick back with some handwork, learning how to prepare the applique and how to apply the layered motif by alternating basting and needle-turn applique techniques. By the end of the workshop, students will have some of the block basted and will start practicing needle-turn applique. When complete, students can make their block into a mini-quilt, wall hanging or pillow. Previous foundation paper piecing experience is required.

Time: September 28th 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
Location: Community Church – Cedar Grove, 65 Bowden Rd. Cedar Grove, NJ 07009
