|Strippy Stars, 44" square|
|Paper Piecing--Learn to Sew Upside Down and Backwards|
Learn to hand piece or English Paper Piece these cute 6" stars. A great way to decide if you really want to make a bed-size La Passacaglia quilt--which is quite a commitment of time and money. Try this FIRST! Tuesday June 7, 5:30-8:30. I'll be teaching this at Open Studios at Quilt Festival Chicago, next month.
Nice big pieces make this fun quilt easy to sew by machine or hand or my favorite method: hybrid, some of each. Saturday June 25, 9-noon and July 9, 9-noon. A much easier version of the La Pass or New Hexagon style quilts. And with pieces cut it's the perfect take-along project for summer travels.
Use those small leftover pieces, strings, to make a 12" Lemoyne Star block. Learn to sew on paper foundations then learn the simple steps to Y-seam piecing that block. It doesn't have to be hard. Tuesday July 12. 5:30-8:30. Another Open Studios demo class in Chicago in April.
Here are two more I'm thinking of offering--if either of these are classes you would sign up for, please comment below and share this post with your friends--guessing which classes you want isn't as good as your feedback is:
|Antique Rose Star--hand or machine piece, your choice|
|Scrappy Trips--very easy and a great stash-buster.|
