You can’t believe everything you hear! For years, quilters have been telling us that making a miniature quilt is harder that making a large quilt! This is simply not true and Kellie Willey enjoys busting this myth. She believes that learning how to create a small-scale quilt can be FAST, FUN and REWARDING! Enjoy hearing how to quickly and accurately make a miniature quilt from a person who is not afraid to go tiny and loves to share that passion!
Kellie Willey has been quilting for 12 years and is passionate about making miniature and small-scale quilts. She enjoys taking large traditional patterns and miniaturizing them using various methods. Kellie has won many awards for her little quilts and enjoys teaching others the love of small-scale quilt making. During her lecture, you will hear tips and techniques that will take the fear out of miniature quilting. You will also have a front row seat (from your computer) to view several of her little quilts up close. Kellie encourages quilters to enjoy the process and get comfortable with scaling down their work. Her philosophy is "You already know how to cut, piece and sew, and it's easy to make it smaller once you know the tricks”. Kellie’s teaching style is fun and relaxed and during her workshops, most students leave with a finished quilt top!
Kellie recently started producing her own line of miniature quilt patterns which are available on her website at www.littlequiltcreations.com.
