MAKING A PINK HOUSE QUILT  

 Session begins promptly at 10:30 am- 12:00pm & Lunch will be provided

Please register above, there is a limit of 10 spaces available for this Session.

Session Description: 

Nine Patch Quilt Block for beginners or experienced quilters 

The Pink House would love to have a quilt displayed that is made from blocks pieced together by breast cancer survivors. The goal is to have 30 to 40 quilt blocks completed. They will then be pieced together, quilted and mounted on the wall at the Pink House.  

This class is designed to teach simple techniques for creating a quilt block. All supplies are provided, and no sewing machine is needed.  The pieces will be hand sewed together using a simple running stitch. For those with neuropathy, it requires the ability to thread, hold and maneuver a sewing needle.  

Margaret McLoy will be teaching the class. Margaret is an experienced quilter who has been quilting since 1990 and has won ribbons in the Pasco County Fair, Florida. She has taught classes and donated quilts for charity auctions. Margaret was an occupational therapist for 30 years, using functional activities and art to improve overall function. She is a 16 year breast cancer survivor, currently battling stage 4 breast cancer.  

Instructor Bio:

Margaret McLoy and her husband moved to Charlotte NC almost three years ago to be close to their son.  She has been quilting since 1990 and has earned a number of ribbons at the Pasco County Fair in Florida as well as donating quilts for charitable causes. Margaret has made many quilts, both pieced and art quilts. She currently is working on her own designs featuring pictorial quilts. She worked as an Occupational Therapist for almost 30 years.

Margaret initially was diagnosed with Triple Negative Breast Cancer in 2006. Cancer has recurred periodically and she is currently in treatment for metastatic breast cancer.
