After the last few Rag Quilt classes we were asked to have a “regular” quilting class. Of course, traditional quilting is more detailed than the simplicity of Rag Quilts but they are great fun to make and there are so many variations. This pieced quilted table runner is a good example of a beginning quilting project…and just in time for Memorial Day and the 4th of July!

Yesterday I got to finish the “Pup Walk” applique and quilt piece that was started a few years ago. I love the way raw edge applique looks and wanted to give it a try along with free motion quilting. Plus I have a different machine with decorative stitches that I wanted to test. I let other things get in the way of sewing and needlework so I was glad to finally get back to it. There are several more projects that I’d like to try using this technique. Lots of possibilities.
We are working on improving our applique and free motion quilting skills. Loving it! Hoping to show you the finished piece tomorrow.
We had a group of quilters at The Studio yesterday making Rag Quilts. They were great…and FAST. Each of these ladies had sewed before so they brought their own machines and whipped right through the rag quilt. Can you believe it just took three hours to make their quilts?! Great work everyone.
We had so much fun making Rag Quilts on Sunday at The Studio. Where else can you learn to make a Rag Quilt and walk away with a finished product in just 3 hours???!!!! Great job everyone. And you asked for it so here it is….another one scheduled on January 8th. And the best part….all the fabrics are flannel with Cats or Dogs motif. You know I LOVE these. Register early because we are very limited in space for these workshops. Click here for more info and to register for the January 8th workshop.
Have you been wanting to learn to sew or quilt? We are continuing our offerings at The Studio so you can develop some “indoor hobbies” before the cooler weather sets in.
Rag quilts are the latest trend in quilting. They are a quick, fun and different type of quilt offering a refreshing break from traditional quilting!
These are perfect for anyone who wants to learn to sew because all you need to do is sew a straight line. (If you have a machine that you have been wanting to learn to use you can bring it and learn on your very own.)
And even if you have been sewing for years, this project will be a fun break and an opportunity to shake up your regular sewing. We are going to have a workshop on Sunday, October 9th at 1 pm. And here is the best part….Kelly is downsizing her fabric stash so all the fabric is included in the workshop fee PLUS the fabric kit will be cut and all ready to sew. There is a nice variety of fabric kits from which to choose or you can bring your own pre-cut fabric. (If you decide to bring your own you will be given instruction when you register on how to prepare the fabric. But the fee is the same so why not choose a pre-cut kit?)
You will learn everything to make a rag quilt without having to take an hour or so to cut everything. That means all you will have to do is sew and clip so you will have a lap throw quilt completed in about 3 hours! Great, huh??!!
Don’t you want to join us? Space is extremely limited. Only 6 students for this workshop.
FEE: $79 Click here to register
A few weeks ago at a private Paint Party I saw my friend, Kathleen, that I haven’t seen in several years and as we talked about “what have you been up to” she shared with me that she had been doing more quilting with a group of friends. Then she showed me this lovely quilt that they made. The quilt is AMAZING. But even more amazing than that is the fact that each quilter was given one section (a block) to create and all they were told was to do it in Fall colors. Can you believe how spectacular it turned out. I can’t even imagine that they didn’t shop together for fabric or coordinate to make it this wonderful. Great work ladies. This is certainly a piece of art!!! And thanks Kathleen for sharing this information with me so I could share it with everyone.
