It's time to think about quilt classes for the fall!  I have a few classes lined up for the fall, a number of quilt lectures and already booking into 2017!   I'm going to start with the class that starts next month!

This is a class that I'll be teaching at The Hobby Horse.  The quilt is called Gravity by Jaybird Quilts and I've had my eye on this quilt for a while.  Finally it's time to give the class a whirl!  

Gravity by Jaybird Quilts

It will take place over THREE different dates - even though it's a block of the month, I know how anxious my students get about finishing things so we're going to rip through it.  Don't worry - it's way easier than it looks. 

Sunday, September 18  from 12:30 - 3:30
Saturday, October 22 from 1 - 4
Sunday, November 20 from 12:30 - 3:30

Yes - that means you get to bring your sewing machine so you can have some hands on with pressing techniques, seam allowances and cutting.   

As I mentioned, this quilt isn't difficult - NO "Y" seams and it's stunning to boot.  We'll be chatting about technique and color and value!!!!

Speaking of color and value, here are three of the block made in Northcott Toscana.  We're discussing kitting options at this point - details to be provided soon. 

First three blocks  DONE!

In addition to the booklet, you'll have to purchase two rulers, BUT in order to make these a worthwhile investment, we're going to explore some other quilts that you can make with the rulers!  Besides, the cost of the rulers far outweighs having to do Y seams - so it's all good!!!!!


Hope you can join us - it's going to be loads of fun and I can't wait to get more of the quilt together!!!!!

See you in class - and don't forget call The Hobby Horse to get signed up!!!!
