The Studio is introducing a new ongoing workshop. Join us on the 4th Sunday each month for our “Quilt Block of the Month” (BOM) series. This will offer a chance for beginning quilters to learn new skills and techniques and for those who have experience quilting will discover new patterns while enjoying fellowship with like-minded crafters. We will create a new block each month for a total of 12 designs. During the sessions we will also use the “Quilt As You Go” method so that at the end of the year you will have a beautiful sampler quilt! This is a great way to discover new patterns and new methods that you can apply to other projects throughout the year. Be warned though: THIS IS A FUN AND ADDICTING HOBBY!!!! LOL! (Can you tell that we are excited about this project?!)
The first block we will be making is the “String” Block. String quilts originated as a technique created by budget-conscious quilters as a perfect use for leftover scraps of fabric. It is a great way to use quilting scraps but it is also suited to purchasing fabrics that coordinate and cutting them into “strings” or using jelly rolls. We will learn to use the easy sew-and-flip technique with this block.
For this first block you can come and use “scrap” fabric that we have available. That way you can decide if you like quilting before making an investment in fabric. Then if you want to continue to join in the year long Sampler Quilt project you can pick up your own fabric featuring colors and patterns you love. Or if you are sure you are going to LOVE this (and I know you will) you can go ahead and select some fabrics to use for the project that will make a beautiful end result.
First Session Fee: $ 25 includes written instructions as well as in person instruction for the Block of the Month as well as ideas for other projects for the block. (Space is limited for our sewing sessions so register early.) Click here to register.

I am obsessed with String Quilting. I was looking for something to do with the TON of scraps I have left from multitudes of rag quilts we have made in workshops. I had boxes of scraps and have been wanting to clean out but I hate to throw away anything useful….you know what I mean. So I started looking for something that we might be able to do as a workshop at The Studio….something a step beyond the beginning rag quilts that we make. I think I found it in the “Quilt As You Go” method of String Quilts. These are so much fun to make and there are many options for designs. I love the scrappy look of these diagonal squares but you could purchase matching fabric to make a more “uniform” design. I’ll share again when it’s done but I had to lay out the squares I finished to see how it was going and I LOVE IT! Twelve squares here and I am going to do 8 more before I connect them. Can’t wait to see it!!!!
