Rings of Change!

Rings of Change my most popular design (black background) hung at Pacific International in October 2018 in the New Quilts of Northern California exhibit.  It was then juried in and hung at Road to California in January 2019.  While it was "on the road" I wanted to make another one with a slightly modern feel.  So I gathered up some American Made Brand solids and created Rings of Change II.  It traveled to Nashville and was displayed in Clothworks' booth (manufacturer of American Made Brand fabrics) at Quilt Con.

The pattern with acrylic templates is available in my store.  Laser cut kits are also available on-line in either batik (black background approximately 64"x64") or American Made Brand with the light gray/dark gray background (approximately 40"x54").  Check out the pattern/acrylic template in the store under the Pattern/Book tab.  Kits are available in the store under the Kit/AMB tab.

New and exciting YouTube Channel is up and running.  Check out Tazlina Sunset an adventure with partial seams. 

I have FOUR UFO Retreats planned for 2021; in February (don't think this is going to go, but if you are interested please give me a call). June, August and November.  People get things done, start new projects, and make new friends and acquaintances.  It is so inspiring to be at a retreat and see what others are doing.  Besides we have fun!  Eat lots!!  You just can't have a bad time among the redwoods in Duncans Mills.

For those who don't know me, my name is Colleen Granger and I am a quilt-aholic. I am also one of those people who love what they do...I am a quilter! I am an author, designer, teacher, quilt maker, and long arm machine quilter. You can usually find me playing with fabric somewhere between Alaska and California and beyond. I travel to teach and I get to meet the nicest people. In 2020 I began Zooming!  So for now I travel virtually.  It's been interesting to say the least.

As an instructor and designer it is my goal to break projects down to their easiest form of construction so that everyone can be successful.  While I am sure that I am not 100%, I do strive to make my books and projects easy to construct, but to make them look difficult.
