  CLASSES FOR THE NEW YEAR!

Right Window Left Window      The clock is back in the window, reminding us that it is time to check out our new schedule of classes. We have chosen a few for display in our windows; for the complete schedule, go to our CLASSES page and then choose one of the 3 groups of classes you find there.
    Let's start on the far right with Judy's blue and green Classy Jeans Jacket; it greets you on your left as you enter the shop. If you can't wait for the class (in March) or want to get a head start, the pattern (J'Walker©, by MorninGlory Designs®) is here. A Charm-ing Jacket, featuring the reddish-pink lattice, is to the left and above Classy Jeans Jacket; you start with a sweatshirt and a Charm pack for this very comfortable jacket. We continue the red-pink theme with the two Funky Flower Mats to the left of our jackets; this class is a low-threat introduction to the "stack-and-whack" technique. Three classes taught in previous trimesters are represented by the remaining models in this window; Santa Ana Winds  is made in tones of brown, Chevron Table Runner is characterized by the classic zigzag motif, and 42 Hashtags is partly visible at the top of the photo.
    The Brentwood Bag from Pink Sand Beach Designs is on the stand at the far end of the left-hand window. Here again, you can get the jump on the classes (in February and April) if you wish. We have both patterns and kits for the Brentwood Bag; and, in spite of what the label says, the pattern is included in the kit.
    Our right-hand window, pictured above on the left, is dominated by the Carpenter's Star quilt; indeed, you can see it from the far side of the parking lot. Designed by Debbie Maddy for Calico Carriage Quilt Designs, there are no "Y" seams in this quilt; there are patterns on the "floor" of the display window. To the right of Carpenter's Star, we have two denim rag projects. At the far end is our Forever in Blue Jeans quilt; the pattern may be found in the Spring 2014 issue of Fons & Porter's Easy Quilts, pp. 46-49. Forever in Blue Jeans can also be made using the Inventive Denim pattern The Denim Circle Rag Quilt. The colorful patches are Charm squares. Nestled between Carpenter's Star and For Ever in Blue Jeans, but not visible here, is Denim Circle Rag Bag; this project also uses an Inventive Denim pattern, and the techniques are the same as those for Forever in Blue Jeans.
