Susan Cleveland
Susan’s enthusiasm for quilting is said to be contagious! Students enjoy her upbeat attitude, well-written instructions, and one-on-one attention included in every workshop. Her quilts have received many awards in international-level competitions since 1997 where judges comment on her fine workmanship and appreciate her original style. She includes many charming, unexpected elements such as specialty threads, prairie points, piping, and great binding techniques. Susan is inventor of the Groovin’ Piping Trimming Tool which is used to trim piping seam allowances and inventor of the Prairie Pointer pressing tool. She is proud to have been named 2010 Minnesota Quilter of the Year!
Susan lives on 70 acres in southeastern Minnesota with her husband, 2 dogs, and a cat. Her two incredibly smart, talented children are in college.

Lecture/Trunk Show
My Eclectic Quilt Pageant

Using simple designs, attention to detail, fine workmanship, and special binding techniques, Susan has created her own unique style. Many of her quilts have received awards at international shows and she enjoys sharing tips and tricks to add panache to simple quilts and take heirloom pieces to new heights. Real quilts will be shared, then details will be displayed via video camera and projector.

Class: Piping Hot Curves-Macaroni
Teacher: Susan Cleveland
Date: Tuesday September 9, 2014
Time: 9:00am – 4:00pm

Add piping to curves and avoid curved piecing! This technique is wonderful for traditional curved patterns and great for contemporary designs. In class, students will learn to make perfect piping and add that piping to the lively, curvy macaroni block. Piping adds pizzazz! Quilting and finishing will be discussed, 29”x29” or 49”x69".
