Free motion quilting is a form of quilting that can be done on many domestic sewing machines. The feed dogs are lowered and you can move the fabric in the designs of your choice. If you want to learn this fun method of quilting join us at The Studio for a beginning class. You can move beyond straight line quilting and learn the basics of Free Motion quilting. This will move your work up to the next level. This class will teach the basics to get you started on the road to free motion on Saturday morning, August 27th at 10 am.
Class requirements: Must have some experience sewing on machine. Must bring your machine for this class. Be sure your machine will drop the feed dogs so you can free motion. (Contact Kelly if you aren’t sure.) Fee includes: Hands on instruction and layered “sandwich” for practice. Click here to register. Space is limited to 8 students.

It’s the quiet before the storm….storm of sewing, that is! The Quilter’s Retreat started yesterday afternoon and while I didn’t get here till early evening I tried to catch up by sewing until 11 pm. And now, as usual, I am the first one up. I just can’t seen to sleep past 5 am. It’s kind of nice in the quiet minutes before all the machines fire up. I can’t wait to see what everyone is doing! More to come.

Our first Block of the Month groups continued yesterday working toward their sampler quilts. We are almost there as we did block #9 and #10 – the Virginia Reel and the Dutchman’s Puzzle. These were a little more challenging than some of the others we have done but as you can see everyone did great! We only have two blocks left and then we will start putting them together. I can not wait to see them come together and see how everyone’s fabric choices turn out. Stay tuned for more next month. If you are interested in giving quilting a try we have another Block of the Month group starting on June 18th. We have two seats left so register now if you would like to learn or improve your quilting skills. Click here to register.

Our first Block of the Month quilt is completed. At least my sample is done. The first two classes who have been making these blocks will be finishing theirs in the next couple of months. They have almost finished the blocks and will be learning how to put them together. This has been such a fun project. The “Quilt As You Go” method is a great way to learn to quilt on a domestic sewing machine. If you are interested in learning to quilt or maybe you quilt but would like to learn a new technique then this is for you. We have a new Block of the Month session starting on Saturday, June 18th. Don’t you want to join us? Check it out here and register early. We are limited to six for these classes so register early.

I recently saw an amazing postage stamp quilt that was king size and made with 1 inch squares…over 7000 of them!!! So, of course, it made me want to try it. The table runner in the photo (The one with the border and the bowl) was made with 1 inch squares. The other one was made using jelly rolls so the finished squares are 2 inches. These were fun but I don’t think I can stand 7000 squares of fun. LOL! You can make one of these beautiful patchwork table runners or toppers (square) on Sunday, April 3rd at 2 pm at The Studio. And the best part is all supplies are included so you don’t have to buy 50 different fabrics to get this look. Join us to learn an easy trick to putting a bunch of little squares together. Click here to register. Space is limited so don’t wait.
