The double wedding ring, with its curved piecing and intricate cutting has proved too frustrating for many quilters but the Quicksmart method can provide both novices and experts with an easier, less aggravating, less exacting method to achieve a beautiful result.  The quick smart way uses printed fusible interfacing to eliminate curved piecing.  Best of all, to make one of these prized quilts is an attainable goal.
Please note this is a two week course.

This dimensional quilt is different and so much fun to make. When we offered this image008popular class last semester, everyone’s fabric choices looked great. Plaids, primitives, brights, pastels and florals all were successful choices. Try this fun ‘quilt as you go’ method, use up batting scraps, and end up with an original and excellent quilt.

Pinwheel Stack and Whack
Teacher:  Ann Shaw
When:   Tuesday July 19th
Time: 10:00  AM  – 3:00 PM
Cost:  $30.00

Beginner and advanced quilters will find this quilt addictive! Easy to make, the result is dramatic.The trick is in the choice of fabric. The focal fabric works best when it is loud and obnoxious. The cutting can be nerve-racking, so join us for this class and we will hold your hand through the tough part.   Layer the repeats, cut triangle shaped pieces from the same part of the repeat, and create a kaleidoscope effect that is irresistible! Think ‘out of the box’ and challenge yourself to buy the most obnoxious fabric available…who can resist a challenge like that?

Machine Quilting for Beginners
Teacher:  Ann Shaw
When:  Tuesday August 2nd
Time: 10:00 AM – 3:00 PM
Cost:  $30.00

This is a method class to teach you how to do the quilting on your home machine.  You need a reliable machine with a walking foot and a darning foot that are made for it (the generic ones tend not to work very well).  We do a LOT of talking about the “how’s” and then play with a practice piece.  This is definitely a ‘must’ class.  You’ll definitely get some tips that will make your job easier, making the cost of the class worthwhile.
Please note: there is a $10.00 kit required for this class!

We’re the only store in the area that still teaches the basics by hand, and trust me; this class will make you a much better machine quilter. Emphasizing accuracy and a well rounded basic knowledge of all aspects of the craft, we make a four block sampler from start to finish, including a hand quilting class.
Please note this is a 6 week course!
