Classes for Fall 2011

The push has been on the last couple of weeks to get my samples ready for the fall classes at Katja's.  My first quilt is "A Quilter's Village."  I had so much fun making this quilt that I may just have to make another.

The blocks for this quilt are made with free form piecing.  Nothing really matters until the end when the block is squared up.  Your blocks can be as individual as you are.  Pick out a few of your favourite bright fabrics and give it a whirl!

This block featuring a lab puppy in it's dog house, is in memory of my "Angel."  I still miss her every day.

This is my second new class.  It is called "black and white and red all over."  A friend wanted to make this quilt from a pattern in a book.  It called for a very large connector at a thirty degree angle.  She phoned me and asked me to try to figure out a way to make it with one of my rulers.  I pulled out my tri-recs ruler and this is the result.  A simple strip pieced quilt that can be made in fabric of your choice.  With Christmas just around the corner, you can dig into your Christmas fabrics and make a special present for someone you love.

As well this session I will be offering my Beginner Quilting class and my Free Motion Quilting class.  The date for Free Motion Quilting is November 26, so if you want to be sure and get a spot, phone the Shoppe soon.  Katja will have her fall newsletter out mid August so check here and click on the newsletter link.
