Creative Grid Ruler Demo Sat August 13, 1-2 FREE
The third ruler in August is the Curvy Log Cabin ruler. By cutting logs at different widths, you can create the illusion of curves and this ruler shows you how. We’ll have some cute table runner patterns (mainly holiday) to go with. . Come to the free demo, learn how to use the ruler, and if you buy the ruler that day, 20% off the cost of the ruler. I will have limited supplies of the rulers in stock, but if I run out, if you pay for the ruler, I will order it in for you.
POSTPONED. THE FABRIC WON'T BE IN. CLASS WILL BE RESCHEDULED IN THE FALL. Kaleidoscope Ruler Quilt August 20 10:30-4 $35 Barb Boyer
This quilt is from In the Beginning fabrics, although most any 10” wide border stripe would work. You cut 8 identical pieces (similar to One Block Wonder and Stack & Whack) using the kaleidoscope ruler. Full sized blocks are used in the center and half blocks for the setting triangles. It looks harder than it is. Only two fabrics are used for this quilt. If you want a kit, please sign up early (as soon as the fabric arrives) as we will have limited supplies.
INSTEAD: HOLIDAY CHEER QUILT AUG 20-10:30-4 CLASS IS FREE IF YOU BUY THE KIT OR CURRENT FABRIC FROM THE STORE FOR THIS QUILT. OTHERWISE CLASS IS $35
Because this quilt has both grown and changed over the course of its existence, I decided a class in how to put this one together might be helpful. The directional fabric pattern (gnomes) has a little different construction you don't normally see. And because on both quilts the setting triangles are pieced, I will demonstrate how make these trickly little blocks.
Make & Take Sat Aug 27, 10:30-3 $30 Jean Korber includes pattern NEW INFO
Fabric Bowl: We will make a fabric bowl -- not designed for microwave, although you probably could use it there. It's a bowl for you to put things in, like yarn, apples, mail....you know, all those collectible things on the counter. You will need your sewing machine. You will need 2 1/2" strips, clothesline, wonder clips and some glue. We are NOT kitting this one because most of you have extra 2 1/2" strip sets lying around. We have all of the other parts at the store.
