The benefit is that the paper keeps the fabric from stretching creating precise piecing, consistently sized blocks, and sharp points. Foundation paper piecing also allows for the creation of shapes that would be difficult to make using traditional piecing methods. In this class, you’ll make beautiful hexagon blocks while I take you step by step through the technique and show you how to use the tools that make it easier. Choose your favorite from the three pattern options: Striped Hexi’s, Equilateral Gone Awry, and Nuts About You. This class is best suited for open minded quilters of all skill levels who are ready to add a new technique to their tool belt. No previous experience with foundation paper piecing is needed. Bonus: We will explore block design and I'll show you a trick to make Y seams easy. Machines Provided by: Brother & Moore's Sewing Centers. Kit Contents: One of the three patterns, participant's choice. All Kits Are Payable to the Teacher. They are not included when you register. Registration Opens July 1, 2024

Then this is the class for you! You’ll learn and experiment with 3 different techniques for curved piecing using the Many Moons quilt pattern. This pattern uses large curves because they’re easier to learn on. Bonus: We will also discuss how the use of contrast, color, and fabric change the look of the quilt. It looks modern made in Kona Solids but see it with big prints in the circles and it’s a whole new quilt. Machines Provided by: Baby Lock & Moore's Sewing Center Kit Contents: Many Moons Quilt Pattern All Kits Are Payable to the Teacher.

Add for the Desert Quilters of Nevada Quilt Show 2023

March 17 & 18, 2023  

Desert Quilters of Nevada Quilt Show
Whitney Ranch Recreation Center, Henderson, NV

A quilt show at home means so much to me, Las Vegas is a popular place for conventions so I have always felt that it's a great place for a quilt show! A big thank you to Sandy Baker, our quilt show chair and everyone at DQN for putting this show together! Come check out my booth and the two quilts I entered in the show! Having quilts in a show is a first for me! I've had quilts that I longarmed entered by their makers and once I made my grandma a quilt that she put in her local county fair (I found out when she sent me the ribbon it won, love her) but actually entering one of my quilts is a first!
