Cutting Corners - Session #1

Cutting Corners Quilt Class
Class starts: 9/17/15 at 1:00pm
Class ends: 9/17/15 at 4:00pm

Join Aileen for this 3-part series to create a simple 2-color quilt with lots of motion. Using the connector method, this charming quilt resembles a modified bow tie pattern. Cutting Corners is nothing more than squares…and more squares. When completed according to the pattern the Cutting Corners quilt is approximately 60″ x 75″. A second quilt was created using multi-colored scraps. Decided for yourself whether you would want a 2-color quilt or a multi-color quilt.

Students might want to make some initial cuts to their fabrics before the first session in order to begin piecing their quilt the first day, so the earlier you register, the better able you will be to begin cutting your fabrics.

Cactus Wreath Quilt by Cozy Quilt Designs
Class starts: 10/29/15 at 1:00pm
Class ends: 10/29/15 at 4:00pm

Join Aileen for a 3-part series to create the Cactus Wreath quilt. The Cactus Wreath pattern, from Cozy Quilt Designs, includes fabric requirements for a large wall hanging, a throw, and a queen size quilt. Cactus Wreath is a stunning quilt and an instant favorite. Perfect for Christmas, or any time of the year, this beautiful design starts with a medallion and grows from there. The Wall Hanging quilt is just the center wreath. The Throw includes the red border (pictured.) The Queen size quilt includes an additional border (not pictured.) Although the pattern reflects a quilt in traditional Christmas colors, consider a different color pallet to reflect your personality and/or the color scheme of your home.
