September Events and Classes
Many Trips Around the World
Saturday September 9th and 23rd from 9-3
with Sue Walters

This is a true Bargello, not just one trip around the world. Many Extended Trips will make several sections come together in this fabulous quilt. So much fun and a bit of a challenge but with a little organization, this can be done easily using two color families to make this show stopper.  If color is a little scary, we'll help you! You can make squares or rectangles - it's all up to you and your desire as to what you want to do with your quilt. Take the time to do prep work so that class goes easily.  With both classes and your prep done, you should be close or finished by the end of class two!

Turning Twenty Again
Are you looking for a fun and scrappy quilt that is also quick and  will continue to build on your quilting skill? This class is for you. Join us as we make this fun quilt using various size blocks, that when joined together, makes a finished 18” block. Each block has a focal block that is 8” so you can make it scrappy or you can use that fabric you've been holding on for the right quilt to come along. This is a fat quarter friendly quilt that is super fun and simple using a variety of fabrics ranging from light to dark. This is a great pattern for those batiks you have been wanting to use.
