Classes & Lectures

I am an independent teacher and teach a variety of techniques. I teach several designer's patterns.


Pieced Borders: This is a technique class. You will make many samples of pieced borders to enhance your quilts. You will be able to make a binder with the instruction sheet and sample for each technique.

Paper Piecing: Learn the fun, easy, and accurate way to paper piece. This method makes sharp points without much fuss. Will also learn how to measure and cut the pieces for the shapes needed. I teach begining paper piecing and intermediate/advanced classes (ask for info on individual classes and pictures of projects). Grab Bag Quilt

Grab Bag Quilt: This is a fun, easy scrap quilt to make. Value is what is important not color for this quilt. You will put fabric squares in bags according to value (light and dark) then grab and sew.



Quilt as you go: Create you blocks then quilt them before you assemble the quilt. this is a good way to use up scraps and strings to make the blocks or you can make traditional blocks and quilt them before assemblying.

Carpenter Star: This is using the pattern Ashleigh from Calico Carriage Quilt Designs This is a great fast and easy pattern, No diamonds and No Y seams.  This is made with large units. Great pattern to perfect your  ½ square triangles.

Labryinth quilt: this is using the pattern from Calico Carriage Quilt Designs Looks harder than it is.

Fanfare: By Deb Tucker  Studio180 Designs great pattern using the spit rec's tool to make these units perfect.



Bargello: These quilts look harder than they are just lots of planning.

Tips and Tricks: Come learn new and useful tips and tricks to make your sewing and quilting easier. Many of these ideas are free or inexpensive. Bring paper and pencil to take notes and also bring your tips.

Scrap Quilts: Let's talk about scrap quilts.I know you all have scraps and you paid for all the fabic so let's use it all.  I will talk about using stings,crumbs,and chunks. I will talk about organizing your scraps and deciding on what to use in your quilts, organized or totally scrappy. I will bring many quilts to show you.

Stash Ideas: We all have a stash of fabric, and most of us would like to use what we have. Here are some ideas to do that. Come and learn how to control your out of control stash and scraps (I know you can't throw them away) so let's use them.
