Ice Sawblades with Ann Petersen

This is a smaller version of  the “Carmelized Sawblades” quilt which appeared in the Sawtooth- New Quilts from an Old Favorite book and contest.  This is a combination of a traditional Sawtooth block with a New York Beauty block. Some knowledge of paper piecing is required, but the class teaches Ann’s preferred method of freezer paper, no tear paper piecing and how to sew curves.

Prickly Pear Pineapple with Ann Petersen

This original quilt is based on an off-center pineapple block which is paper-pieced.  This quilt uses only 2 fabrics–one multi-colored and one solid black. Paper piecing with strips or freezer paper are the 2 methods that will be used.

Crazy Piecing with Janet Nesbitt

This is a fun class and students learn my popular “crazy” piecing technique (stacking fabric, cutting on the lines, shuffling, and stitching it all together). This fun technique keeps you coming back for more, one quilt after another, and will keep you “piecing like crazy” long after the class is over!

The Play's the Thing: Improv Sketches with Pat Pauly

Join Pat Pauly in learning the quick steps to composing improvisationally, by building off the pieces that started the design for an art quilt. With her handful of piecing techniques, and tips on construction, we will make mini-works that can be the finished art quilt or become the base for larger work that begins a series. Let go of templates and see possibilities develop.
