The Classes

#1 ANTELOPE CANYON

DEBBIE BURMER

The grace and mystery of Arizona’s gorgeous slot canyons inspired this dramatic quilt. Choose precut strips or cut yardage with a contrasting background for unique log cabin-style blocks perfect for any quilter with a little experience. Rotate the blocks to create another stunning layout; more inspiring ideas are included in the pattern. The original quilt was done in the earth-tones of the actual Antelope Canyon. My sample was made with the Dit Dot Evolution strip rolls.The size of this quilt is 74-1/2” x 74-1/2”. I will also have a supply list for those who want tomake only one block, which will be approximately 37-1/2” x 37-1/2”. Antelope Canyon is easy to sew,but like all log cabin blocks, it isn’t fast. The important thing with this quilt is to be organized, and I will give you tips with the supply list.

# 2 DIAMOND DELIGHT

DAUNE WALKER

This quilt is so much fun! Great scrap quilt. Requires a 6 ½” ruler with a 60 degree angle. Pick out some unusual large prints for the center diamonds with coordinating solids or matching small prints to set off center diamonds and a bold color for small diamond. Pattern cost $5.00.

#3 JACK'S CHAIN

CINDY PAGE

JACK’S CHAIN seems to be on everybody’s bucket list so we are going to give it a try at MBQP 2022! New year, new goals. We have all wished for time at home to sew. Well, we got our wish in 2020/2021 so I sat down and made a Jack’s Chain (be careful what you wish for). While this is not a beginner’s class, it is not hard, it requires patience and accuracy to get all the points to align. If you are an intermediate level quilter, confident in your sewing skills, give it a try.

We have the pattern and a plexiglass template set so you can cut accurate pieces-that's step 1.

The pattern and template set are $27.95 + tax and postage.

This quilt can be done with a light background, dark chains or dark background, light chains. The pattern includes instructions for projects from table runner to bed size. I added borders to my quilt which made the finished quilt 88” X 94”. As they say, go big or go home. I chose one light fabric for the chains but all the dark patchwork pieces were cut from my scraps/stash. I completed the center portion before I chose the border fabric. This quilt can be done with batiks, like mine, or any other good quality cotton fabrics-feed sack reproductions, 19th C. reproductions, modern/graphic collections. Contrast, you need bold contrast between the chain and the background fabrics.

Please order the pattern and template set early so you can complete your cutting before class. There is a lot of cutting to do so don’t wait until the last minute.

Contact me at (704)376-2531, call or text at this number, to order the pattern and templates.

Looking forward to seeing everybody in January 2022.

#4 THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME

PATTI CLINE

I loved making this house quilt and you will too! This paper pieced pattern is called “My Kinda Town”. It was designed by Peggy Larson for Fiberworks. We are going to spend 3 glorious days paper piecing these whimsical houses and trees. I will show you the basics of paper piecing. If you can sew on a line, then you can paper piece. Once you get started, you will have a great time, swapping fabrics and making a big fabric scrap mess. The original pattern finishes 42” x 54”. Mine is a little bigger, more a lap size. I added more trees and the row of stars at the top. You might want to add a house of your own design.

#5 FULL MOON AND STARS

DONNA ROYSON

Based on the Quilt in a Day pattern, Roundabout Stars, this fun and versatile quilt is made up of only 2 blocks and some half blocks! When the blocks are sewn together, a secondary pattern of circles is formed. It looks great with scrappy or planned fabrics. Great stashbuster! We will also explore an option to use very simple paper pieced borders to complete the outside circles.

We will use an Accuquilt to cut some of the pieces in class which will save students a LOT of time and provide precision piecing.

If you sign up for the class, send your fabric choices or ideas to Donna for Input into EQ8 to produce several options for you to see before making a decision on fabric.

In this class, you will learn how to make 8 half square triangle units from two squares of fabric, how to make triangle in a square blocks, how yo use precision cut pieces, simple paper piecing, and more tips you will be able to use with any quilt in the future.

So, bring your fun fabrics and let’s make a quilt under the moon and stars! Pattern $9.00 and Triangle In A Square Ruler $16.00 available from instructor. Note: if you took Moondance in 2019, you already have this ruler.

#8 WINDSWEPT

JOANNE SHROPSHIRE

This wonderful flower is made using some curved piecing. I know many quilters shy away from that but it really is not that difficult. We will be making three different size blocks to form each flower. We will be making the 84 x 84 inch quilt but there is a smaller version if you want to make that one.
