Feeling overwhelmed by the fabric and UFOs you have in your stash? Want to see then disappear? This is the class or you! Start with a list of PhDs (Projects Half Done), come to class, and let Muriel help you with the problem areas, whether it's design help, using specialty rulers, or just getting motivated to finish a project.

We are excited to be offering the Birthstone Series Block of the Month by MJ Kinman, Textile Artist. Each month you will pick up your pattern and fabric bundle and begin making a stunning 17” birthstone block in class. These birthstone blocks are NOT traditional paper piecing, it’s a freezer paper technique developed by MJ Kinman. The January class will teach you the basic techniques needed to create the blocks and the following two months will cover differences in that particular month’s pattern. This is a confident beginner quilt class.

One-Block Wonder  
Date: Saturday, May 2 (10:00 - 4:30 pm) NOTE CORRECT DATE
Instructor: Nancy Hutchison
Cost: $60
"One Block Wonder" is the term used by Rosenthal and Pelzmann in their books to describe quilts composed of a single repeating shape usually cut from one fabric, and then put together in a kaleidoscope arrangement. These quilts are fascinating and require constant input from the quilter, which makes for an engaged experience until the last stitch. There are many variables to choose from when stitching, yet the sewing itself is straight lines only with no set in seams. Your original block will result with many applications for other block settings. Fabric choice is important to the process so many styles of fabric can be successful.

 

Note: All classes are non-refundable if cancelled within two weeks of the class date. Classes noted with an asterisk (*) are non-refundable after sign-up.
