This class is designed for beginning quilters or anyone who would like to just sharpen their skills a bit. You will learn how to choose fabric, cut with a rotary cutter and mat, piece the quilt, make the quilt "sandwich", and do a little quilting and finish with the binding! You will have a finished quilt. You will need to come in and pick your fabric prior to the class. You will also need a rotary cutter, mat, ruler, thread, quilt clips. If you do not have these notions, we have them here. The quilt is also here in the shop for you to see now.

Merci le Vie is a study in applique. Applique is not just satin stitch. There are many many stitches to be "auditioned" and we will give you some ideas. We're going to meet for two times, then give you time to stitch your blocks and meet back here at some point when we're ready to set it together and put on the finishing touches. Merci la Vie is a precious quilt that leaves plenty of places for you to be creative. We'll guide you in directions that you may have never experienced before. The lady who designed this quilt, Anne Sutton, says "This quilt is a celebration of life, and I hope you love making it. It's a testament to women everywhere and a salute to those who have fought breast cancer. Merci la Vie!"

Betty's will be starting a monthly apron class soon. They will be new patterns and different than any aprons we have done before. We made our first one from skunk fabric! It is soooooo cute. Millie modified the pattern by adding embellishments that really make it ever cuter. Of course, if you're not into skunks, you may certainly pick any fabric you wish.

Cost: $ 40.00
Each month will be a demonstration of a new and exciting border. You will come to class, make a small sample of the border that month and go home with the instructions and your sample to refer to when you use it on your own quilt. We will offer several different borders that are creative and beautiful. You will have a "workbook" of different ideas for your beautiful quilts with enhanced borders. Here are the first two!

Cost: $ 25.00
The pattern suggests a couple of ways to use this 3D Christmas Tree. We'll be making a table runner in class, but you can also use it for pillows and other Christmas projects. Ours is made and is available to see here in the shop. This is one of the cutest patterns we have seen in a while. It will be one of our projects for our "Christmas In July".
