Classes in Minneapolis & Tinley Park

  Final classes for the Sewing Expo in Minneapolis and Tinley Park (Chicago)
FREE MOTION QUILTING, BASICS AND BEYOND:

 This fun wreath is a stencil . . .

Draw with a stencil; complete with free motion outside
 What a FAT CAT! Of course! That's his name. My own pattern that we trace the simple outline shape onto freezer paper, iron onto fabric, stitch around freezer paper, peel off freezer paper and then fill inside this very fat cat!


Fat Cat is a pattern I've had for a very long time



BUZZ SAW

Buzz Saw using a multi-sized 12-1/2" Dresden Plate ruler (included in kit)
This is Dresden Plate blades on steroids! Easy and quick and dynamic.

And then CUPID'S ARROWS:
Hosannah Quilt from my book, Paper Piecing Perfect Points
 Cupid's Arrows is a paper piecing project using just 3 of the Hosannah/Palm Blocks:

Cupid's Arrows
 Check out the Twisted Hexagons!

Twisted Hexagons
This only looks hard. There are no y-seams and the blocks are large. The table runner uses 12" blocks.

TWISTED HEXAGONS

Twisted Hexagons Table Runner
The Table Topper uses 10" blocks (6 of them) and a large, interfaced center hexagon appliqued on last.

 And, last but not least, my Mariner's Compass paper pieced on a 20" coffee filter!
Mariner's Compass drafted on a 20" coffee filter!! Yes, you read that right! Add a paper pieced halo of Flying Geese and then the super-sized background for an awesome 32" block.

MARINER'S COMPASS CLASS
32" block - 20" compass
 And a Mariner's Compass in modern colors . . .
