Classes


Lemoyne Star Sampler
- Jun 25, 2017 12:30 pm

This is a class for intermediate and advanced quilters. It requires precision cutting, sewing, and pressing and plenty of patience. The quilt consists of 12 large and 12 smaller blocks. There will be six sessions and we will cover two blocks in each session. In the first class, we will cover the basics of using the Rapid Fire Lemoyne Star tool by Deb Tucker (Studio 180). You will practice making the smaller stars and combine them to make two of the larger blocks. For each subsequent class, you will have a homework assignment to prepare for the next class. You will not have time to complete your block if you have not done your homework. I know that life happens and you may not have had time to complete your homework, but come to the next class so you can at least observe and take notes. If you want to make a different size quilt, please contact me for revised fabric requirements.

Antelope Canyon

Use precut 2 ½ inch and 1 ½ inch strips to make this dramatic quilt, the latest pattern from designer Laurie Shifrin. Once the four large log-cabin style blocks are made, you can experiment with different layouts. The sewing is not difficult, assuming an accurate quarter inch seam, but planning and organization are essential. (Hence the first, one hour planning class.) Use autumn colors,as Laurie did, to evoke the canyons of the southwest, softer colors to suggest tide pools as in Hilary’s version, Low Tide, or black, white and gray, for a dramatic, masculine look.
