Beauteous Blocks and Borders with Gina Perkes-Tidwell

Gina Perkes-Tidwell is an international award-winning quilter and quilting educator. She spends much of her time in the classroom, sharing tips and techniques with the most wonderful people in the world: quilters! Gina, a lover of all things creative, has an innate need to beautify things and feels completely blessed to have been born as an “artoholic.” Her life is filled with color, fun, ideas, texture, challenges, bling, threads, glitter, sugar, flour, and of course, CHAOS. Though she enjoys all sorts of creative outlets and mediums (gardening, mosaic, oil painting, etc.), her three favorites are quilting, culinary arts, and photography. Gina travels all over this beautiful country, sharing her techniques with others, and hosts private quilting and pastry retreats at her home in Arizona. 

Have you ever been overwhelmed by the arduous task of creating quilting designs to t your borders? Have you ever lacked the confidence needed to design one-of-a-kind block motifs? In this hands-on class Gina will show you how to find inspiration and simplify the drafting process. You will learn how to design block and border designs using Gina’s award-winning techniques. You will learn how to mark your quilt top both prior to quilting and after quilting has begun, gain control, achieve balance, select and use threads, and much more! Whether you consider yourself an artist or are intimidated by the thought of drawing, you will come away with new confidence and techniques that you can begin using on your own quilts!
