A number of quilters have already dropped by the shop to sign up for classes and to view the class projects. We would like to give you a preview of the Autumn 2013 projects. First, here are the first projects for each of our Weekly Quilting Classes.
The Intermediate and Advanced classes will start out with a simpler project to tune up your skills: a set of placements called Take Four. You will probably finish the set during class so Sue will be prepared to help show you how to quilt one of your placemats.
We have a picture of Sue’s now-completed quilt made with Reproduction fabrics. Sue is already making another one with more modern fabrics and a picture of some of those blocks follows.
You get to pick one of eight patterns. We have samples of most of the patterns on display in the shop: Compass Rose, Cactus Flower, Arizona Cactus, Feathered Star and Snowflakes. The other three patterns which may be selected for the class are: Cappuccino, Sunflower Illusions, and Summer Solstice.
The Bargello quilt pattern is inspired by the well-known style of needlework found on the chairs in the Bargello Palace in Florence, Italy.
Sue will show you how this simplifies all those curves.
Just add an accent color and it’s magic!
She will show you how to make perfect points with Deb Tucker’s Corner Beam template and show them off in a gorgeous quilt called North Star.
Yours in Quilting,
Sue and Staff
