The response to my local SPECIAL EVENT class of FULL CIRCLE has been fantastic. There are only a few spots left for the adventurous quilters who want to stretch their wings and fly. Now you don't have to travel to Monterey CA to take the class March 2024 where I will be teaching it at Empty Spools Seminar. You can sleep in your own bed. 

My top is done and currently with the longarm quilter. I love the colors I chose and how it came out flat and square:

This quilt will teach you a lot:

 Paper piecing with Freezer Paper
 Precision piecing of small units
How to piece curves accurately
How to make circles
How to applique, by hand or machine or both
Basic Embroidery stitches should you want to do them
And So Much More...

DETAILS and REGISTRATION can be found on Southern Charm Quilting's website: FULL CIRCLE SPECIAL EVENT

September 11-15, 2023  Class is 10-3 each of these 5 days
Southern Charm Quilting, 1847 University Dr NW  Huntsville AL 35801
Fee: $200, includes lunch the first day
Pattern Fee: $55, to be paid the first day  
The pattern is by Wendy Williams, who designed Color My World for The Quilt Show as the 2021 Block of the Month quilt. This quilt is easier than that one though it has a similar feel because of being a circular design. 

You DO NOT need the pattern prior to the first day of class. It is so important you wait for class instructions before starting this quilt. I have written an 8 page Handout with "Changes, Tips and Clarifications". You will receive it the first day of class with the pattern.

My Supply List provides excellent information for Fabric Selection. The amount of fabric listed for each block is for the entire quilt.

I am also happy to help you with Fabric Selection PRIOR TO THE FIRST DAY OF CLASS. Send me photos of your fabrics if you want help. 

Students are flying in from Houston, TX, driving from Atlanta and Mobile, and lots of locals have wisely decided to take this "once in a lifetime" 5 day class locally.

I did a "practice class" in March with 6 great women at My Joyful Journey Retreat. See how great they did  HERE

These women have become friends and continue to meet and encourage each other as they work on FULL CIRCLE. I got to see them recently. Take a look:

Cyndi has Quadrants A and B complete and sewn together:

Victoria is working on hers: 

Julie is making hers in Pittsburgh Steelers colors for a fan. She is also an engineer who has created several NEW DESIGNS for her quilt:

Sue is making progress on hers as well:

If you want to LEARN A LOT, IMPROVE YOUR SKILLS, and HAVE FUN, register online today for this SPECIAL EVENT. 

I hope to see you there.

Let's quilt.



  1. You mention “sleep in your own bed”, is this a virtual class?
    I hope so!!

    1. NO. 5 solid days in the classroom. Anyone who wants to travel to Empty Spools Seminar in CA will not sleep in their own bed. Locals will have that luxury.
