Satisfy your need for speed with an easy quilt-as-you-go technique!

We will be making a colorful 15” x 45” table runner using the “Street Smart Quilt” pattern from Fun & Done Quilting.  Fun&Done! Quilting is a fast and easy quilt-as-you-go technique, as the quilting is completed as each block is constructed.  Sew the blocks together, and you’re done!  Now that’s fun!  It’s all done by machine, and the binding is the fastest technique that you’ve ever seen.

The Batting Buddy (pictured above) is NOT required.  However, almost everyone who tries one loves it!  The motto of Fun&Done! is “satisfy your need for speed”. The Batting Buddy takes your project up to rocket speed! 
Some pre-work is required.  Fabric requirements and pre-work instructions will be supplied upon class registration.

Date:  Thursday, March 15th from 10:30am - 3:30pm

*NEW*  ~Seminole Strategies~  *NEW*

Instructor:  Cherie Troester

Seminole quilting originated from the Seminole patchwork used for clothing by southeastern Seminole Native Americans.  In the late 1800s it was a long trip from the Everglades to trade for cotton cloth so women began sewing strips made from the fabric left on the end of the bolts to make what was know as “strip clothing”.  The sewing machine became available to these women around the end of the 19th century making it possible to use much smaller strips.

Seminole designs grew to become even more elaborate and complex.  Seminole patchwork was usually used for traditional dress including the women’s long full skirts and big patchwork shirts worn by the men.  Even today these garments are worn for special occasions.  These beautiful Seminole patchwork patterns eventually became popular in quilt making as well.

Seminole piecing in quilting can lead to beautiful, often elaborate designs.  In this class, Cherie will teach you how to make the quilting piece more intricate by simply changing the design of one block.

Date:  Wednesday, April 4th from 12:30pm - 3:30pm

Class Fee:  $15 (no pattern required)
