Learn hand appliqué while making Buttermilk Basin Wool Vintage Truck in your choice of size. Terri has some new tips for experienced stitchers.
This class is from the Fold & Finish Cotton Theory Collection, designed by Betty Cotton. It is a reversible quilt that will be pieced and quilted with a new dimension when you are done. The pattern you will be learning to make is called Attic Windows. The pattern gives yardage for 2 sizes, 70" x 82" or 90" x 106". It can also be made into a pillow, smaller wall hanging, or lap size quilt. It is a fun and interesting technique.
The pattern fee is $10 when you sign up. Linda will be ordering the pattern and needs to know how many to order by the February meeting.
This is a beginner class to learn about using rulers to
quilt on your home machine. Quilting
with rulers allows you to make straight lines without a walking foot, less
turning of your quilt, and gives you another set of options for your
quilting. We will work on a sample piece
and you can bring blocks or scraps that you would like to practice on. If you already own some quilting rulers,
please bring them to play with. This is
a technique class not a project class so be prepared to explore a new
A straight quilting ruler is required for class. The cost of the ruler, Creative Grids 'Slim', for class is $19. If you wish, you can bring a straight ruler with you. I recommend smaller rulers because they are easier to handle. You will also need a ruler foot for your machine – this will not be available for purchase in class. There are resources listed in your supply list. I will bring my own rulers so that you can sample different types of rulers. So come and have fun learning about quilting rulers.
Diana will be teaching the popular jelly roll rug in your choice of rectangular, oval, or circle. This is an intermediate workshop; it is important to read the supply list and homework before signing up.
