We'll be sharing new class information here on the blog over the course of the next weeks. If you don't want to wait for me to show them off here on the blog, all you have to do is hop over to our website here! Yes...I make it that easy.
Pictured above is the project for our Foundation Paper Piecing Class with local designer, Jennifer Ball. The class will be offered Saturday, July 29 from 10am-4pm. You can use this versatile 12" x 12" block to make a full quilt, a mini quilt, a pillow, or a table runner. We chose to go with the table topper using Sunday Supper from Sweetwater which is available here in the Shoppe.
The pattern is one of Jennifer's own designs so it is only available with class registration. She's excited to share her skills with all of you and you will leave Jennifer's class with basic foundation paper piecing techniques.
Once you've mastered the basic techniques, you might start feeling the creative urge to tackle something like this giraffe quilt by Violet Craft that Jennifer recently finished and showed us at one of our "What's For Breakfast?" Events.
For our Beginning Table Runner Class (pictured below), the "Mothership" felt it was time to go simple to get right to the basics! She will be teaching this super cute table runner on Saturday, August 12 from 10:30am-3:30pm. Register here.
In our Beginning class you will definitely learn the importance of good basic quilting habits that you will take with you on your creative journey. How to use a rotary cutter, how to piece accurately when it comes to blocks and borders, how to press, etc. It sounds like a lot and for some like myself it could be intimidating, but she's going to make you feel like you've known how to do it all along!
We just love that spoon, fork and knives print from Sweetwater's Sunday Supper collection! How many of you have a patio table? I said from the day this collection arrived that it was the perfect collection for Summer table tops, table runners, pillows and even patio chair cushions to spruce up your outdoor dining!
I should add that the class is for the "true" beginner...meaning has never quilted in their life...kind of like me!
