One hour powerpoint presentation followed by a short trunk show covering my progression from a traditional quilter to the present. Topics touched on will be inspiration and to believe in one’s own self and sense of “style”. During trunk show I will happily answer audience questions regarding technique, product use, etc. Program is informative and entertaining with a grande dose of humor.

Full Day Class: 
Abacus Block Quilt
Pre-order Easy Angle ruler $8 at sign up

A fun one block quilt made entirely out of 2.5” strips!  OR you can go scrappy if you wish! 

80 strips (2 jelly roll strip sets, or straight from your stash) will be enough for 100 blocks for a 60”x 60” quilt.   

-Set ONE of 40 strips is prints, colors, a fabric line, a mix of your own, medium to dark tones.

 -Set TWO of 40 strips is neutrals, backgrounds, lights, whites, creams,taupes, pastels, a good      mix makes for an interesting quilt.     

You can expand the quilt by adding additional 2.5” strips to your project palette.  For each strip added you need to add equal number of background strip(s).   One strip set (print and background) will make 2.5 blocks. Strips of fabric 2.5” wide are sewn, cut, and sewn again to make this fun block.  And let me show you how the Easy Angle Ruler will become a tool you can’t live without to in making accurate half square triangles.

Now gather up your strips because we have some Abacus blocks to make!

Please note: We can order the pattern, $7.00 from her website She gave us a 20% off discount code of ABACUS-TN. This pattern is an instant download. Students will pre-order the Easy Angle Ruler, $8.00 plus tax, when they sign up for class. Mickey will bring them to the class.

PM Class: Summer Carnival

Join the fun of colorful and adventurous day filled with making the Meems quilt block featured in the quilt Summer Carnival.

Strips of fabric 1.5” and 2.5” wide are sewn, cut, and sewn again to make this fun block that is a twist on a traditional Sisters Choice block which fills the center of this quilt with a confetti -like appearance.

While the book quilt is truly scrappy in all the blocks, for those who wish to bring a focus fabric in it can be done, I suggest a minimum of a half yard or 1.5 yards if you are considering using it in the star triangles. In fact, why not two focus fabrics and break the blocks into two groups for a checkerboard look.

There are so many variables, ie. two color palette, florals, print themes, or just dig into your scrap bin and have fun playing with different fabric combos. I want you to take and make this block your own with and show off your style .

Confident Beginners to Advanced Quilters will enjoy this workshop.

Now gather up your scraps because we have some Meems blocks to make!

Please note: Mickey will bring free patterns. The Half scrap book is NOT required. The book is no long published but she is bringing some when she comes. They cost $20.
