Good design never goes out of style. When cotton flannels came on the quilting scene in the 1990’s, this was THE quilt Albuquerque quilters made. Simple and fast for its size, Jane’s FRONTIER quilt will look great in today’s fabrics.

Elves ELVES GONE WILD ** Phyllis Henry & Cindy Kurey
At DEMO DAYS we showed some small projects that would make great Stocking Stuffers and Christmas gifts. Here is you chance, with the help of our elves, to get hands-on experience in making them. Four of the projects are from the Better Homes and Gardens 2015 "Christmas Quilts and More" magazine: "Grab Bag" (a unique hand bag, pp. 110-112), "Luggage Tag" (pp 115-117), "In The Bag" (for jewelry lovers, pp. 118-119), and "Roll Out The Welcome" (a table runner, pp. 28-31). The "Pretty Pleats" pillow is on p. 118 of the December 2015 issue of Better Homes and Gardens American Patchwork Quilting. We shall also be making an"Infinity Scarf", a Travel Tissue Holder (using a Villa Rosa pattern), and a Thread Catcher (featuring our own pattern). Stop at the front desk to pick up the list of fabrics and other items you will need for all of these projects.

Thread Painting Thread Painting THREAD PAINTING ** {fox - 4¼"; rabbit - 3½"} Michele Lommasson
Learn the basics of free-motion thread painting – a relaxing art form that will add dimension to your project. You don’t need a fancy machine; any machine will do. Take a look at the picture of the bunny. Starting with a piece of fabric with a bunny printed on it (shown in the lower part of the picture), Michele "painted," using threads in her sewing machine that matched the colors in the bunny. When she had finished "painting," she cut out the bunny and appliqued it to a small purse. The cute fox on the right was made in the same fashion and appliqued to a small bag; on the lower left in this picture, you can see the fox in a different pose on the original fabric.
