Quilting and Sewing


Tula Pink's latest book is meant to move quilters to their own choices of fabric, layout, and blocks--to make quilts their very own. Her book has no titles for the blocks--just numbers--so you can decide on your own meaning. Let Caryl figure out which blocks you like best, and which fabrics to use. This class will be a collaboration among you, Caryl, and Tula via her book!

Learn to do hand applique using Misty's favorite fast technique! Make a cute floral block in no time.

Fabrics: 1 fat quarter or 1/3 yard of a very light/white background fabric, 1/8 yard cuts or scraps of fabric in the colors of your choosing for the flower parts. Be sure to prewash all of your fabrics. If you wear reading glasses, please bring them.

Patricia designed an applique technique based on layers that is perfect for making portraits out of photographs! We are imagining Christmas gifts, birthday gifts, and the list goes on.
