Beginning Paper Piecing Saturday May 14 1-5 $35 Barb Boyer

Pot Luck Retreat Friday-Monday May 20-22 $50 Barb Boyer
Pot Luck is just the name of the quilt, but it is also a good description of the quilt. Freddy Moran and Gwen Marsden are the creators of Liberated Quilts, that are made from left overs (often called the parts department). Black fabrics can feature prominently in their quilts and red is often used as a neutral. Blocks tend to be "liberated" or free form, kinda made up as you go. It is a liberating way to make a quilt. The retreat will focus on choosing various blocks to put into your quilt, finding your “neutral” color, sharing ideas and fabrics, and incorporating orphan blocks into the mix. These quilts are fun, and it’s on the schedule because I want to finish my quilt that I started 2 years ago. Which means a second quilt, with all the left over parts, will be soon coming.
One Block Wonder Panel 1st class Saturday May 28 10:30-4 $50 Jean Korber
Back by popular demand! This quilt uses 7 identical panels, 6 of which are cut up into equilateral triangles and pieced around the panel, which is worked into the center, the top, the bottom, the side—you choose! First class is getting your panels cut. Subsequent classes (2 more) in June will follow for designing and sewing. If you haven’t made one of these quilts, now is the time to learn. And an in person class, especially for this quilt, is the way to do it.
Zig Zag Quilt Saturday May 7 1-5 $35 Barb Boyer
A change up from the traditional Jelly Roll Quilt. Zig Zag uses one bundle of 2 1/2" Strips plus additional fabric. The cascading colors make a stunning, simple to piece quilt. Perfect for that last minute gift: graduation, wedding, Mother’s Day, Father's Day, etc.
