Once again, I'm on the road visiting and teaching at guilds and seminars across the country! And, of course, I'll be teaching quilters how to use reproduction fabrics to make reproduction quilts and we'll be using 21st century techniques to make 19th century quilts.
Here's the class descriptions and supply lists for a couple of these very popular classes -- Making Reproduction Quilts and Lizzie's Quilt. Other popular classes are Wool Applique and Embroidery Stitches for Quilters. Please call or email -- I'd love to come to your area to teach these or other classes! View descriptions for other possibilities under Classes & Lectures.
Have you noticed? The hottest new trend in the quilting industry is wool applique!
Wool -- hand dyed and wonderful textures -- combined with the great hand dyed threads that are available for embellishment is a winning combination!
To enjoy the adventure of wool applique and thread embellishment, we have a wonderful new Block of the Month project. Each block features luscious wools combined with delightful embroidery. Nothing is quite as nice as knowing that EVERY MONTH there will a package in the mail -- filled with wonderful fabrics and a beautiful pattern! Even though life often gets hectic, it's great having a quilting project to look forward to-- it makes each day a little brighter! And as we enjoy the sunny days of spring and summer, a wool applique Block of the Month quilt is the perfect take-along project for day trips and vacations!
This new quilt is a wonderful potpourri of flowers and traditional images set on a gorgeous textured black wool with a textured red wool providing the perfect separation between the blocks.
Join us for 12 months and make a 12 block quilt with four rows of three blocks. With borders, that will finish at 41" X 52". Extend the fun and join us for 25 months and make the larger design that is five rows of five blocks and with borders finishes at 68" X 68.
I've been having so much fun adding extra embroidery to the blocks -- click on each image to see for yourself!
The program will include patterns, plastic overlays for applique placement, all wools for background, borders, sashing, binding, applique, and instructions for completing the project. We require a $50.00 deposit for the one year program and $100.00 deposit for the 25 block quilt. Each month we will charge your credit card $27.95, which includes all these supplies and shipping to anywhere in continental US. You can join anytime during the year. We ship the middle of each month and there are no hidden finishing costs! We'd love to have you join us in making this heirloom quilt!
In addition, we're extending our other wool BOM projects for another year. Look under Wool Applique (Link of the left side of the Home Page) for details on the Folk Art Album Quilt and Life's Journey quilt.Karen
