First, here are the initial projects for each of our Weekly Quilting Classes.
Carolyn is teaching a class on six Sunday afternoons based on the marvelous, bestselling book by Tula Pink: 100 Modern Blocks. She has been working on not one but two sets of blocks: one using Cotton + Steel and another set using only tones of black, gray and white. (She also has a third set with Civil War fabrics; but we’re not supposed to mention that one.) Sue has finished a set of blocks using fabrics that are definitely “outside of the box” but she wants to keep it a secret until her quilt is assembled. Sarah is also using Cotton + Steel. Linda is using her stash of Christmas-themed fabrics. Heather has just started her own blocks using Stepping Out, a black/red/white fabric line from Henry Glass. (You can see this fabric line in Carolyn’s Southern Comfort quilt below.) Even Jim is doing a set using the Bittersweet fabric line from Benartex.
The Battlefield pattern will also be taught as one of the Weekend Classes.
How much fun is that? Here are photos of Middlebury, Women of Courage, Primrose Hill, Vintage Rouge, The Mill Girls, Hampton Ridge, House Warming Party, and Civil War Tribute.
In the first of our Weekend Workshops, she will show you how to make perfect Lemoyne Stars with no Y seams. The following week Sarah will show you how to use Deb Tucker’s Diamond Rects ruler to create Deb Tucker’s Sea Glass pattern.
Sue will show you how to race up the Shaker Ladder. The following week she will share her very own interpretation of a Tweed Bag from Ireland.
Sue will teach you how to use Deb Tucker’s newest ruler, the Corner Pop, to make perfectly shaped blocks. You won’t believe how versatile this ruler is! This is one ruler that will not spend its days lost in a dark corner. Your seam ripper may end up in that dark corner instead!
Join Sue for a fun day!
Farmer’s Wife or Dear Jane? Here are photos of Sue’s first Farmer’s Wife quilt (yes, she is working on another one) and some of her Dear Jane blocks. Here also is a Farmer’s Wife quilt made in batiks by Rosalie, one of our online students!
Yours in Quilting,
Sue and Staff
