“Precuts - What They Are and How To Use Them”
Most of you have heard of or purchased layer cakes, jelly rolls, and charm packs but may not know what to do with them. Jennifer will explain what they all are and share with us her trunk show of many quilts all made from various sizes of precuts.After owning a quilt shop and quilters retreat center in Pennsylvania for several years, Jennifer has had many opportunities to assist her customers on their projects, including teaching classes and many demos using precuts. Jennifer has spoken to numerous guilds in the PA, MD, and NJ area shedding light on what precuts are and how they came about. Through her extensive trunk show, she will show examples of how to use precuts. Many of the patterns come from the Missouri Star Quilt Company’s Block magazine which she notes in her lecture.
Thursday January 10 Full Day Class

Disappearing Pinwheel Quilt, $30
Everyone will construct simple blocks alike using two layer cakes, then you’ll cut them apart and create something quite different. We’ll slice and dice and swap them around to change the simple pinwheel into one of six layout variations. Two layer cakes are required, one all neutral and one print. You’ll be able to purchase a white, natural, or black layer cake for only $22 when you sign up for the class. Finished quilt size is approximately 80”x90”.
