Kit of the Month
"Caribbean Cruising"from Sarah Vedeler Designs
Take a cruise, enjoy the sun, the blue sky and the beautiful sunset. Or if you can't get away, make the quilt instead. This is a bright and cheery quilt that contains 3 yards of fabric and the two
"Transformation" Charm Packs necessary to create this gorgeous lap quilt (48″ x 61″). The pattern, from Sarah Vedeler Designs also features optional embroidered applique which we did not use on our sample. The kit cost is $54.48. Click on the picture to see more details.
The Next Classes on the Horizon
We have two class sessions for Fancy Forest. The first session begins May 25th and the second session begins June 16th. Each class session will be held once each month for 6 months. Each month you will learn to make one flora or fauna.
This is designed to be a relaxing fun class with plenty of time to complete each phase of the quilt before moving on to the next.
We have the Elizabeth Hartman Warm and Cool Fat Quarter Bundles from Robert Kaufman. These 23 fat quarter bundles contain all the fabric used for the flora and fauna of the Fancy Forest quilt. You will need one cool color bundle and one warm color bundle to complete the quilt.
These fat quarter bundles will be made available first to class participants.
"Farm Girl Vintage"
Lori Holt's book Farm Girl Vintage provides the inspiration for the next class at The Quilt Loft. Instructor Linda Leake has used several of Lori's "Mix & Match" 12 inch blocks for her sample quilt.
Students are encouraged to use their own color combinations and block choices from the book making this a very creative class. Stretch your imagination and let your creativity fly...
"Free Motion Quilting Made Easy"
This is an easy to use "Free Motion" quilting technique class. Students will learn a quilting method from the "Easy Free Motion Quilting" book by Eva Larkin. Carol's Sampler Quilt, shown above, was finished using this quilting method. Students will learn this easy method and will be able to quilt most any quilt. You will first quilt on muslin to learn this method, then on a sample block to perfect your technique.
