Two-Day Classes - Monday & Tuesday

Some of you saw this at the last Quilt Camp and asked me to teach it this year. For those who didn’t see the sample, the pictures may make you think this will be way too complicated.  But I assure you this project will have you wondering why you have never before made a miniature quilt.  No paper piecing, no tiny seam allowances, no stress, just fun!  So much fun that I will probably have to throw you out of the classroom for lunch.  Yes.  It IS that much fun.   Make it traditional, make it modern, or make it anything in between and see how proud you will be to hold up your miniature at Show and Tell.

Additional cost: $19.65 for book

There are many ways to make Dresden Plates and there are many ways to create miniatures but in Mary's opinion this technique uses the easiest and most accurate way of doing both.  These tiny Dresden Plates are machine pieced and will have precise points and petals every time.  The pattern shows a large piece made with reproduction fabric and the sample is a small wall-hanging using pastels.  The choice is yours.  Directions include both machine applique and hand applique.  Again it is your choice, but fair warning: these little guys are so cute and so much fun to make that you will find them addicting!

Additional Costs: (pattern and template) $22

The perfect mix of modern and traditional elements that create a quilt that is timeless.

Hidden Wells #1.JPG

We’re uncovering the Secrets of the Hidden Wells. Sounds like a Nancy Drew Mystery, doesn’t it? Unlike the twists and turns in her books, this class uses simple, straight strip piecing with a few strategic cuts to unveil lots of intersecting diamonds. What’s your favorite style? Hidden Wells varieties can look like stained glass, or a string quilt, or a piece of modern art. Bring your favorite fabrics – Jelly Rolls will work too. The final result can be a quilt of any size you choose, from wall hanging to king. Like any good mystery, there will be surprises and choices to make along the way. No pre-cutting required. Bring a large square ruler and lots of pretty fabrics.

 

Class Fee is $7 for pattern.
