Class Length: Full Day
Enrollment Fee: $75.00 / seat
Quilt designer, teacher, and author Sharon Wilhite, specializes in using innovative techniques, timesaving methods, and technology to create spectacular quilts. She has designed quilts for Elizabeth's Studio, Exclusively Quilters, Hoffman Fabrics, Robert Kaufman Fabrics, and Timeless Treasures. She is the developer of the Reflection technique, a quick and easy cutting and piecing technique which creates a stunning variation of a kaleidoscope quilt.
Sharon has been quilting since 1989 and designing quilts since 2005. She specializes in distinctive quilt patterns as well as innovative and time-saving techniques. Her patterns are suitable for beginners as well as more advanced quilters. Sharon’s book, Bending the Rules, is a technique where you can apply a simple process to almost any pattern to give it more movement and added appeal. Her quilt design, Chained Melody, was published in Australian Patchwork and Quilting magazine in 2010 (Volume 19 No. 4).
It is Sharon’s hope that her students take away from the class the very essence of what she puts into it – the whole hearted enjoyment and love of something that is creative as well as satisfying. If a student learns one thing from a class that will last throughout their quilting career, Sharon feels that she has accomplished what she feels is most important in quilting. It is not the perfect quarter inch seam, not the points that just barely touch instead of being chopped off, and not the blocks that are so perfect that they never need squared up, but the pure love of doing something thoroughly enjoyed and hugely satisfying. By helping others to enjoy quilting, Sharon feels that she has accomplished something worthwhile.
