Anything Goes

Just about anything can fit into this large tote bag. It's made from 2 1/2" fabric strips and Bosal double-sided fusible batting (available in a precut 2 1/4" strip package.) The Bosal helps it to stand up on it's own and gives it extra body. Leave it plain or add pockets to the inside and a closure to the outside. Sandi is a pro at teaching this technique. Join her for the fun! Zig-zag sewing machine required.

Machine applique

Becky picked this lovely feather table runner as the perfect project to learn machine applique. The shapes are large with easy curves to turn under. There is no need to be afraid of the "A" word (applique!) anymore. Once you have your machine set up with the proper stitch, you will be zipping along in no time. A limited number of kits are available.

Milky Way

I love the way these stars spin in the background. Three of us collaborated to piece this quilt and we used small amounts of 34 different fabrics. Our sample is a crib/lap size but you can make any size you wish. Students will use the 6" Scrap Crazy rulers. Kits are available for $16.95 and include the 34 fabrics we used. Pick your own background. Will you choose a midnight blue to be more like the Milky Way or the new fun and funky newsprint backgrounds? Decisions, decisions....

Another winning design from Laundry Basket Quilts. Chris will show you how to stay organized while cutting the reverse images needed for this 48" x 48" quilt.

Quixote

If you want a stash busting quilt, this is the one to choose. We used 69 different fabrics just for the geese units and 9 different backgrounds. Why? Because we could! We also used the Studio 180 Tucker Trimmer and Wing Clipper tools to make perfect units. Those rulers are optional but do make the piecing easier. Join Becky for the day and learn how to piece this block perfectly.

Beginning Lemoyne star

This is the perfect opportunity to become friends with the ruler on a personal basis. Students will piece this 20" x 20" quilt using only 4 fabrics. You will have a lot of practice using the ruler while making this quilt.

Making fish

Grab those batiks out of your stash and let's make some fish! We will use Laura Heine's method to fuse fabric and create your unique aquatic dweller. This class is a great way to learn the technique without having to create a huge quilt. So be prepared to channel your inner artist when you join Peggy for the day. In order to get the most out of your class, there will be prep work ahead of time. Batik kits will also be
available.

Messenger bag

Customers love the look of this retro messenger bag. Our sample uses the new 57" wide bark cloth from Ella Blue of Australia. The bag measures 15" x 12" x 3" and can easily hold a lap top computer or IPad. With ample pocket space on the inside, you will have plenty of options for whatever you need to carry.
