Jody Beck-Jazzy Jewels
Jazzy Jewels features a skewed nine patch that takes stack ’n slash to the next level. Amazingly, it works. You will learn the non-traditional method to stack and slash the blocks and should get most of the 36 blocks done in class. We will talk about squaring up the blocks and how to set them together into pods so you can go home and finish the quilt.
Where: Calvary Church
When: 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM
Cost: $30.00 ( plus pattern fee of $10.60 to be paid to the instructor)
Workshop: Saturday, May 14: Calvary Church
Amy Smith-Fractured Circles/Pimp My Borders
This class will encompass two different quilts combined into one project.
The focus of the main (center) quilt will be Fractured Circles. This project uses the “Build As You Go” quilting method developed by Amy Smith. Beyond traditional “quilt as you go”, this method will create the entire block, quilted, and joined without bulky seams or “hinges”. Amy’s quilting style focuses on embellishment and decorative stitches, so bring your machine with all the wonderful stitches it has to offer!
The second half of the class will focus on the borders…but not just any border. These borders are embellished with stitches, decorative threads, actually everything but the kitchen sink! The borders will be attached to the quilt using the same Build As You Go method, making for a fast and creative class.
Most of all, come prepared to have a great time, relax and throw (most of) the rules out the window!
Where: Calvary Church
When: 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM
Cost: $ 35.00
