2018 Workshops

Labyrinth Walk Quilt

With  Peg Johnson-Purdue

Thursday, September 20th

The Labyrinth walk quilt is fun to create.    It is a quilt that is an illusion and looks harder then it is.  Following the instructions as written is the key to a Successful completion.   Students must purchase the pattern prior to class and have all of the pieces cut out.  (see the button on the left for more specific instructions) IMPORTANT:  Label all of the cut pieces as it will ruin your day if you mix them up.

  There is extensive cutting before the fun begins and it is time consuming!

Whirling Dervish Lap Quilt

With Anita Chaisty


September 27th 

The Whirling Dervish pattern is one of Deb Tucker's newer patterns that is so much fun to make you will want to make over and over. We will be working on the lap size (46"x 57") but the pattern also has instructions for a twin, queen, and king size. Learn how to use your Tucker Trimmer (requires the larger Tucker Trimmer III) in an all new way - including as a squaring up tool. This pattern can be made with bright fabrics or your favorite combinations of fabrics. It is made up of just 1 block with 2 color layouts using strip piecing. Great for quilters of any levels - including beginners. So come and enjoy seeing what your fabrics become when they are sent spinning!

One Block Wonder

 Thursday, October 25th

with Janet Armstrong


Back by popular demand!  

Janet Armstrong’s class, guild program and trunk show were a huge success. 

 She is teaching another class for those who missed out the first time around.  

This quilt is made using one fabric that is cut to create hexagons that have a kaleidoscope effect. Each block is unique so no two Quilts will be the same. The exciting thing about this quilt is you never know what you’ll end up with!  If you love the colors in the fabric, you should be thrilled with the results.
