Tree Skirt by Krista Moser Nov 19 10:30-4 $35 Jean Korber
For the Krista Moser fans, and especially if you already have the ruler, why not make this great tree skirt. The tree skirt can double as a table topper, and the pattern also includes placemats and a table runner. The pattern shows using black, white & grays for the main part of the tree skirt (the trees are done in greens), but you could make it in other “buffalo check” colors, from green & black, red & black, or assorted Christmas prints.
Triangle Frenzy Sat Nov 12 1-5 $30 Barb Boyer
We’ve been putting the Triangle Frenzy quilt table runner on the schedule for several years now because it is so popular. It is the perfect table runner and it uses the great 10” wide border stipe fabrics. You need a 12” 60 degree triangle ruler and 1-1 ½ yards of a border stripe. These table runners are quick to make and are great gifst for the holidays. .
Letters to Santa Sat Dec 10 1-5 $30 Barb Boyer
Kids put out cookies and carrots for Santa and his reindeer on Christmas Eve. This little pieced “mug rug” has a pocket for Sant’s letter and a space on the side for the cookies, milk and carrots. It’s quick to piece and is a perfect gift for the child in your family. The pattern calls for embroidery as well, but a flair tipped pen works just as well.
Waterfall Sat Dec 17 10:30-4 $35 Jean Korber
The Waterfall pattern is a cascading colored quilt block, using 7 different fabrics from light to dark made in a half log cabin styled block. You can make the quilt using one color family (pattern is shown in blue) or you can make it in various colors, cascading from light to dark in each color family. I hope to be able to bring in at least one fabric group that uses 7 different colors in one color family. Stay tuned.
