CLASSES FOR THE NEW YEAR!
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©
MorninGlory Designs®) is here. A Charm-ing Jacket
featuring the reddish-pink lattice, is to the left and above Classy
; 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
is made in tones of brown, Chevron Table
is characterized by the classic zigzag motif, and 42
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
; 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
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
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
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.
