Quilting Class Samples

This past week, I set aside my self-imposed resolution of not beginning any new projects until I first complete five of my numerous Works in Progress. But my digression was for a very good cause, honest. I made samples for the classes I hope to teach this fall at Sew There! Quilts and More in Angier, NC.

I am jazzed about this tote bag made from 2 1/2″ batik strips. It’s a breeze to make using a Quilt As You Go construction method. Each bag requires 10 strips, so a pack of 40 strips will yield a tote for yourself plus gifts for 3 of your friends. Bonnie, at Sew There!, has strip packs both of batik and a new line of fabrics for baby. This design would be darling as a diaper bag.

I’m always intrigued with Jenny Doan’s “Disappearing . . .” quilt block designs. When I saw “Disappearing Pinwheel” in a recent Missouri Star Quilt Company idea book, I had to try it! Using the “Abigail” line of fabric (Dover Hill for Benartex), I enjoyed making this 36″ square quilt. It will serve as a table topper, wall hanging, or quilt for a baby girl.

It’s never too early to think about decorations and gifts for Christmas. I designed and made this “Hearthside Stars” runner from black Grunge fabric plus a package of 5″ Charm Squares of “Hearthside Holiday” (Deb Strain for Moda). Come learn how to construct “Faux Flying Geese” and “Faux Square in a Square” units. This quick and easy project with beautiful results has me fingering additional Charm Square packs, imagining how they would look in a star-y runner.

If you live locally, I hope you’ll join me in class this fall!
