The ECHOS program is offered to Mountain Top Quilters members during the afternoon following the general meeting. Instruction in different techniques or information on how to do various projects is presented. The classes are usually taught by an MTQG member free of charge or for a nominal fee to cover the cost of supplies incurred by the instructor.

Upcoming E.C.H.O.S. Workshops:

There will be no ECHOS in December due to our luncheon.

In January Sharon Watt will demonstrate how to use rulers in free motion quilting. I know I bought some rulers at one of the quilt shows and don’t remember what to do with them. Stop by after the quild meeting, watch and ask questions.

February ECHOS will be Ronnie (Veronica) Sandoval demonstrating paper piecing in particular as it pertains to Drunkards Path. So if you’ve been thinking of trying paper piecing or if you’ve been afraid of curved piecing this may be the method for you.

In March Sherri Hubbs will demonstrate the use of crayons to color in your own stamping figures to create fabric pictures to make into a quilt.
You do not need to sign up for demonstrations, just come by, watch, and ask questions.


ATTENTION all you very clever MTQG quilters. I know many of have cute – novel – quirky or innovative items that you could share with us at an ECHOS class. Contact Marie Willison to schedule a class.

Remember, there are no fees for these classes –they are presented to us by the skillful members of our own Guild. So just come and get lots of new ideas and learn some interesting tips and quilting skills.

ECHOS is a Mountain Top Quilters Guild activity for and by our members.
