Classes


This is one of the most intricate quilts recently created. If you have signed up for this class you probably have seen our sample, the book, and/or the profusion of images on the Internet. It is made from rosettes constructed from five different shapes tessellated and repeated throughout in an extremely complicated manner. The process of construction, however, is pretty simple. It is English paper pieced (EPP) an old method which requires paper templates for each piece around which fabric is wrapped and basted and then whip stitched together.

Cost: $ 135.00

In response to inquiries from several students, we are presenting a class developed by Judy Doenias years ago to provide a place where you can explore your creativity. Once a month for four months we will meet (if you love it, we can continue beyond that time). Judy will present a challenge for you to explore during the upcoming month and ask you to present your results to the class on the following month. It can be based on a quilting design (e.g. log cabin, etc.), it can be to explore a shape (e.g. squares, etc.), it can be to create your own design based on simple parameters, or anything that her mind can conjure. If you are ready and willing to participate which includes doing your homework, this inspiring class will elevate your quilting experience.

Join Judy Doenias in a trip along Jacks Chain. This is a traditional pattern dating from the 1930s that is making resurgence due to the popularity of the hexagon. Though it can be done by hand piecing, with care it can be accomplished by machine. You can choose to do either. or both. Three shapes are used-hexagons, equilateral triangles and nine patches. When sewn together, this Quilt of Illusion appears to have circular shapes intersecting with one another without any circular piecing. Recommended for intermediate and beyond quilters.
