That’s Glendale, California ---- not Glendale, Arizona ----
This coming weekend is the Glendale Quilt Show! ((I'm saving my specially planned GREEN SHIRT for St Paddy's Day on Saturday!))
I got notice today that there are some last-minute openings in a couple of classes ---
If you’ve always wanted to take a class at a show ---but were afraid that classes required a certain skill level, or found the fact that a lot of classes ALSO require an expensive kit to participate --- never fear! These two classes do NOT require kits, can be made from scraps you have on hand, teach basic fun skills, and you get a LOT done during the class time with much to show for it.
I’d love to spend the day with you!
Thurs, March 15: Shirttails!
Three traditional blocks combine in this top to challenge any quilter! We will be making 1/2 square triangles in 3 different sizes, and combining blocks of different sizes to make a scrap quilt with a primitive feel. *Note* Though the pattern in the book is written with regular rotary cutting instructions, I love to use my easy angle ruler for half square triangles, and the companion angle combined with the easy angle ruler for flying geese units. I will be demonstrating these rulers during class, so if you have always wanted to know how these work, bring them with you!
Don't worry about pre-cutting for this class-- I know Thursday doesn't give much prep time -- just bring a good selection of fabrics you want to work with and we can cut during class.
Sunday, March 18: Scrappy Mountain Majesties!
A great quilt for using larger pieces of leftover fabrics! All of those “WHAT WAS I THINKING!” fabrics can find a place to shine in this super easy, super visual quilt. Students will bring pre-cut 8.5" squares in pairs of light/dark. Many layouts provide lots of options for this fun quilt!
I’d love to see this classes fill to full. What are you waiting for? If I can drag my carcass cross-country to come play --- you can come play too! You’ll be glad you did!
I’ve got to get a good night’s sleep tonight --- tomorrow is the crazy day I get to fly backwards from Little Rock Arkansas, to Charlotte, North Carolina – so I can catch a plane that flies me “Non-Stop” from Charlotte to Los Angeles ---Stupid way to route me, but hey, it’s hexie time again!
