#1 ANTELOPE CANYON
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
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
#4 THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME
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
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.
#6 OUT ON A LIMB
Just Hanging Out on a limb....This is one of Susan’s newest quilts! Her love of birds and especially Peacocks are evident it this tree full of fancy birds with all their beautiful feathers and brilliant color. With simple fused appliqué and lush hand embroidery these birdies come to life in a big way! The appliqué can be machine stitched or whipped
stitched and then lots of hand embroidery to embellish each appliqué! Day one will be cutting and fusing, day 2 will be hand embroidery around each bird and all appliqués. Day 3, the pieced Square in a Square border is very simple with careful machine sewing.

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. I am looking forward to see what fabric everyone picks for their quilt. Looking forward to seeing everyone.
