A perfect Saturday project-all straight line sewing. This variation of Many Trips Around the World is primarily made of 2 1/2" strips you can pull from your stash. No tubes or "un-sewing" in this project. You can use 45" strips, fat quarters, short strips left from other projects-bring everything you have to get lots of variety. Sashing strips are added to the design so pressing seam allowances isn't a problem. You can choose to buy your sashing and borders before class or wait until you finish the blocks and audition fabrics after class. This project is really easy and appropriate for any skill level. Cindy will provide a handout and plenty of demos to get you started.
Jelly roll or scrap friendly class! Cut and sew strips until you have a 12" block. Make as many blocks as you want and sew them together randomly for a fun quilt that is any size you want from a table runner to a king. Any fabrics work-batiks, 30s, brights, etc. One day class.
Saturdays are a good day to sew on something comfortable. This is a nice traditional block. I made it two colors, but it would be nice out of a variety of colors from your stash. Half squares and "flippy" corners make this block a snap. No special tools. just your regular cutting ruler. The pattern we are using is Tulip Crosses ($10) designed by Brenda Riddle of Acorn Quilt and Gift Company. Great class for any skill level.
These little artful Postcards are extremely fun to make! If you love handwork & embellishing, this is one class you will love! These can be made as gifts or you could mail them to your friends. You could pick any theme you like, but we will focus on a mountain, underwater scene or snow theme for class. These little quilts will have hand painted backgrounds with lots of hand embroidery stitching, beading & more. Even some stumpwork will be included! You will learn lots of embellishing techniques to use in future projects as well. Then the little art will be stitched to a burlap backing for a unique finish! **Kit fee will be $25. Pattern only $10. Kits will include pattern, linen, batting, #22 Chenille needle, yarns, and some beads, like the glass fish and shells. The Inktense pencils and paint brushes will be available for your use in class from Susan. There will also be hand painted embroidery threads available for purchase during class.
