Waller to teach historic quilt classes in Yankton

Waller to teach historic quilt classes in Yankton Experienced quilters in the Yankton area can make a quilt in the style of center medallion quilts from the mid-1800s at Four Seasons Fabric.

Mary Waller of Vermillion will teach her original Medallion Feathered Star design for the first time in Yankton, starting Feb. 15.

Waller describes her Medallion Feathered Star quilt as, "a dynamic and graphic design that's quite striking. It's one of the best pieces I've ever designed."

This 96" x 96" quilt features a large center star surrounded by borders of three different traditional designs. Although the design is based on historic American quilts, modern fabrics, tools and techniques are taught in the class. This design requires accurate rotary cutting and machine piecing skills and is recommended for experienced quilters. A companion book written by Waller is also available.

A sample of Waller's Medallion Feathered Star quilt is on display at Four Seasons Fabric.

The class begins Thursday, Feb. 15 at 6 p.m. and meets every third Thursday through May.

Waller has been teaching quilting since 1991 and has taught at regional and national conferences. She is profiled in the National Quilting Association's Fall 2000 journal for her work drafting patterns from antique quilts using computer drafting programs. Waller also appraises quilts and judges quilt and needlework shows.

Students can register for the class at Four Seasons Fabric or at http://www.fourseasonsfabric.com. For more information, call (605) 665-3406 or (605) 624-6629.
