Join the One Block Wonder craze and make your own quilt with the fabric panels of your choosing. In the first session you will begin making the kaleidoscope blocks from your fabric panels. In the second session you will bring back your blocks and we will look at different options for laying out your quilt. Please ask for a supply list and pre-class instructions to help you prepare for class or find these documents on The Quilt Crossing web page.
The pattern is from Buttermilk Basin's, Pick of the Crop. It's a fun pattern to get ready for the fall, with its fun pumpkins, gourds, leaves, and acorns embroidered on a scalloped wool backing. Your mat will look fantastic on your table. COme in and spend time with Roxanne, (who loves Buttermilk Basin patterns), and learn how to read the pattern, use Heat n' Bond to get your shapes perfect, and how to use basic embroidery stitches. This class will be 2 sessions long, which should allow you to get your project finished in time for fall.
If you loved the original "Framed pattern but want to use a panel or directional (one way) fabric, then this class is for yo. The pattern has been re-designed to accommodate directional fabric with all the guesswork taken out. The new design can be made from fat quarters, a panel or focus fabric and a "frame" fabric. The first session will be cutting your fabric and identifying all the pieces in each block. There will be lots of tips and tricks for organizing your project. The second session will be creating the blocks and the final sessions will be putting it together. There will be some "homework" between each session which will allow you to finish the top. As always in Carolyn's classes, there will be prizes at each session, so come join the fun!
