All Day Class: 9:00 - 12:00 & 1:00 - 4:00 Mountain
MAKE IT UP AS YOU GO-Sally Terry
Minimum skill level: Advanced Beginner
This class encourages you to keep building your skills. Get exciting texture, beautiful repeating shapes, cross over the lines and love the look. Learn to choose and coordinate your patterns with others on the quilt top. Just for fun we will limit ourselves to 3 patterns, then find creative ways to use them throughout the quilt top from border to block to sashing and fills, adding more texture, more detail, more design. The class focuses on texture pattern size, detailed fills and repetition.

MEDORA MYSTERY-Kathy Johnson
74” X 82”
General Sewing Supplies
Choose your border fabric first. I would choose a medium to large print with several different colors in it. A black background for this fabric would be a plus because we are using black in the quilt.
From this border fabric choose 3 color families (like purple, orange and blue, whatever colors are in your fabric). You will need 2 fabrics from each color family. I would pick ones that are more tone on tone or not too much print to them. You will want a medium light and medium dark for each color. Plus you will need a background fabric.
Background fabric 1 ⅞ yards
Black fabric- ⅞ yard
Border fabric 1 ⅜ yards
For the remaining 6 medium fabrics you will need ⅝ yard if each.
Cutting before class:
From each of your 6 medium fabrics cut 2 8 ½” strips
From the black fabric cut 6 2 ½” strips and 8 1 ½” strips
From border fabric cut 8 4 ½” strips

NOEL STAINED GLASS WALLHANGING-Merry Moose

Kit $49.99 + tax
Pattern: $12.99 + tax
The kit for the class includes all of the items needed for the Table Runner including the backing, batting and the Clover Quick Fuse Bias in Gold or Silver to match whichever kit you choose. Since it’s a quilt as you go, we just included batting and backing to match. We don’t have the fabrics yet, but I can tell you we’re planning on Hoffman Fabrics with a bit of metallic to it. They’re gorgeous. We are including a couple of extra yards of the Clover Quick Fuse in each kit. I asked Brenda from Bear Paw about this and she said, the requirement on the pattern is for someone who is very frugal and has worked with it quite a bit. There isn’t much left over she said, so we’ll put extra in each kit, so we don’t have to worry, just in case no one has used it before. The needed items are standard equipment and supplies. A small iron (Clover) that heats all the way to the tip is extremely useful. It’s hard to share this during class. It calls for Roxanne’s Glue-Baste It and we will have that available also, although won’t include be in the kit, just in case people already have their own. It also recommends 70/10 needles, so we’ll make sure and have a good supply of those along. It goes through the Quick Fuse Bias much easier than an 80/12. You can order the pattern from Merry Moose if you want and we can bring it along.
