Barb's Quilts

It is my privilege to teach several of the late Barbara Bilyard’s patterns.

Barb was a quilter for more than twenty-five years and taught contemporary quilt design and construction nationally and overseas for many of those years. Barb loved geometric patterns and colour and the classes I have chosen to add to my teaching repertoire will allow us to put our own interpretation on her designs. I have written consent from Barb’s family to teach the following classes.

Miniature S-Bends

This is Barb’s take on back to basics - make a block, add some twists and turns, decide between soft curves and sharp angles and the old positive/negative concept has a completely new look.

1-day class for all levels

Machine Magic

A negative/positive design using 5-inch squares.

Barb’s patterns include variations on Hearts, Leaves, Geometric or Christmas. A great introduction to designing your own quilt.

1-day class for all levels

Daisy Star

Take something old, Variable Star, give it a twist and you have Daisy Star. Adding some curves creates a very different look. Set on point with9-patches makes this little beauty a true miniature replica of a full size quilt.

1-day class for all levels
