The Strip Club:
No we haven’t gone completely crazy! But you know
the saying “girls just gotta have fun”! What we are going to do is
provide you with yet another way to create exciting quilts using
either precut strips or strips you can cut from your stash. We will
have some great ideas on how you can work with these strips in a
variety of projects. This club takes place once a month. Pattern
included in class fee. There will be lots of fun along with goodies,
coffee and tea! Aren’t you just a bit curious? Sign up for three
months at a time but can join anytime.

Each Elegant Elements Block is unique – giving you something new to learn in each class. Blocks are quick to stitch out on your embroidery machine with a an average stitch out time of 30 mins and only 4 thread colours per block. Digital cut files have also been included if you would like to cut your pieces out with your cutter. Block sizes available are 5″, 6″, 7″, 8″, 9″. Each block is unique, only 6 blocks repeat so you will be making something new every month.
Great Scrap Buster Quilt:
Are you looking for a way to start using up some of your scraps that are at least 4 1/2″ square? The “Which Way Block” is just one of the blocks that is very easy to cut out using the Goddess Ruler by Needle In a Hay Stack. Students will work on cutting and stitching a few blocks in class. Supply list available.
Another Nother Stack n Whack:
The fifth in our series of stack n whacks, you can make this fun, easy quilt with just one feature fabric and 2 accent colours. You only have to stack four layers and there are no triangles, so this is a quicker quilt than the pinwheel.
Date: Surrey: Sat Apr 23 10:00am – 4:00pm
Scrappy Mystery Quilt:
The clues will be given over the period of three months. I will be at the shop to hand out the clues and help with sewing each month. You will need scraps of two different colours and scraps of light background colours. The two different colours should be very distinct from each other. Example: red and black or green and yellow. Not light pink and light purple. The scraps will be 2 ½ inch squares or strips and you will also need scraps that measure 5 ½ inches square or 4 ½ inch wide strips if using an easy angle ruler to make half square triangles. The quilt finishes at 80 by 80 inches without borders. Come join in and use up more of those scraps.
This is a simple variation on a traditional log cabin quilt. Organizing and arranging the foreground and background is what gives this quilt the “Wow Factor”. Use precut strips or cut your own. Pattern required.
In this class you will be taken to the next step. I will show you new blocks teaching you new techniques. Once you have finished your blocks I will then show you how to sash your quilt properly. For this class you should have taken the beginner class as you will already have the foundations for making a quilt.
