Becky Goldsmith, an award-winning quilter who travels to teach quilting both nationally and internationally, will be the guest speaker for the Jasper Out on a Limb Quilt Guild meeting, Wednesday, September the 20th, 1:00 pm.  Her classes are always interesting and informative, with an emphasis on teaching techniques that help you improve your sewing skills without making you crazy.


Becky started Piece O' Cake Designs with Linda Jenkins in 1994. They published more than 30 books and hundreds of patterns, including 7 Blocks of the Month. Linda retired in 2014 and Becky has continued writing books and patterns.

Making quilts is interesting, fulfilling, and challenging—and being a member of the quilting community is an added bonus. Becky never imagined that being a quilter would become her life’s work, but she’s so happy that it did!

There will be a social time beginning at 12:30 pm.  There is a $5.00 fee for non-members. Location Pickens County Community Center.

We are planning to coordinate a carpool to this event and if you would like to join us please contact Dianne Mallini or Barb Fraser to be added to the carpool list, please let us know if you are willing to drive. Details to be finalized closer to meeting date.

Class begins at 9:00 am.  Cost per person is $70 which includes lunch.  To register please contact Terri Swanson at 404-861-1441 or atswanson@comcast.net

October 19, Laura Heine Collage Quilt Workshop, Chapel McCormick Hall, 10-4:00 PM

You may be asking yourself “What is a collage quilt?”  Well, collage quilting is done by layering small pieces of fabric to make a design in an artistic fashion and is surprisingly forgiving… as in it’s hard to make a real mistake.  Collage quilts can be made from different colors and types of fabric as well as different shapes and sizes of fabrics.  A great way to use up some of those scrapes you have been wondering what to do with.  Also, easy for all skill levels!


This workshop, presented by Karen Williams, Guild member and experienced quilter and longarmer, will demonstrate her method for making this beautiful thread spool collage piece.  Finished dimensions are 22”x27”.  Karen will be providing more details regarding this fun, creative event at our September business meeting.  Supply list as well as class sign-up sheet available at that time.
