My Fall schedule is set with local classes. Friends and students can take great classes, at home, without having to travel to away places and incur all those extra costs.
It's been a while and due to popular demand, I am teaching two of my MOST FAVORITE classes. These classes will not be taught again locally any time soon so sign up now or miss out.
|Queen Size, using 12 sets of fabrics|
|Twin Size, using 6 sets of fabrics|
Want to learn the process but not ready to make a bed-size quilt? Using 1" strips, you get .5" squares and a Teeny Tiny Two For One:
|Teeny Tiny 2-4-1, made with 1" strips, 21" x 28" |

then contact me for a detailed fabric selection guide. Class is 10 hours of instruction, over two Saturdays. Sure to be one of your most favorite quilts.
ANTIQUE ROSE STAR BY MACHINE:
When you learn the "MAGIC METHOD" for the dreaded Y-Seam, you will be amazed how EASY this quilt is. Every time I teach it to quilters around the country I want to come home and make another. So far, I have made 3 in various sizes. Students have made beautiful quilts in class and you can too.
Sign up at Patches & Stitches once they announce the Fall Schedule. This class is one session, Saturday October 8, 9-3. You will learn so much and be on your way to an amazing quilt.
I needed a quilt for a man's gift and his favorite color is blue. When I saw this pattern on Instagram, I knew it was perfect. The pattern is really called Blueberry Kisses but since I have a professional relationship with this person, I made a change to the name. Find the pattern at Thimbles and Needles.
The designer has several great patterns.
NOTE: for this class you will need to have purchased the PDF pattern download before coming to class and know where you put it on your device. Or print yourself a copy.
Two color quilts are so wonderful for scrap quilts or even carefully planned quilts. Any two colors you like will work or, three colors, like Red, White and Blue, or Team colors--whatever you like will work great. All the blocks and sashing/cornerstones are made from 2.5" strips so your best Jelly Roll is a good candidate too.
Sign up online at Southern Charm Quilting--this is the ONLY time this class will be offered because when the quilt is gifted, I won't have it any more. Don't miss out all you can learn in this class: the cutting, sewing and the pressing as well as so much more.
I still love teaching BEGINNERS TO LEARN TO QUILT and this Fall I have two offerings at local shops. If you know someone who wants to learn, PLEASE PASS THIS INFORMATION ON.
START QUILTLING--SOUP TO NUTS:
This day-time class is 18 hours of instruction over 3 weeks, on Tuesdays starting September 20. The past students in this class have loved being able to learn and sew all day, then go home to work on their project until the next week's class. By the 3rd session they were all quilting their quilts!

today to be sure you get a spot. It's so much fun and I guarantee you will learn a lot.
My heart is in this class. I have taught beginners how to quilt at Patches & Stitches for almost 35 years,. That is almost two thousand students. The class has changed from completely hand made in the early years, to completely machine made today. After this Fall offering the class will change yet again--it will no longer be offered at night and will be a different pattern.
SO, if you took this class and loved it, please spread the word to friends who want to become as passionate about quilting as you are, take this class now or miss the chance:
Sign up at Patches & Stitches when the Fall schedule is announced. This class will be 5 sessions, Tuesday September 20, 27, October 4, 11, and 18, 5:30-8 pm.
As usual, a lot of time and effort goes into offering these classes, both by the local shops and by the teachers who offer them. If the classes don't fill, the classes won't be offered. Each class/shop has a minimum number of students required to make the class possible. So, don't delay--if you see a class you like, at any local shop, sign up right away so more classes will be offered in the future.
My traveling schedule makes it less likely I will teach lots of classes locally. I hope to see you in one of these, while we all have the chance to learn, share and laugh together.
