Happy Friday everyone, it has been a busy couple days at the shop with our Sale running this weekend but it has also been a lot of fun. We have one day left in our sale, it runs tomorrow yet from 10am-4pm, all yardage and precuts in the classroom are 50% off and there is scrap bags to stuff for $5. We have been adding new stuff whenever there is room for yet, so the tables are just as full now as they were Thursday when the sale began. Come on out and see it for yourself.
The business continues with a couple classes next week.
Esther is teaching a One Block Wonder quilt class and there is a full day option as well as an evening option. We have had quite a few questions as to what this quilt is so I thought I would share some information on it.
The One block Wonder quilt is made using panels or large prints, and the way you lay out your blocks can make a huge difference on the end result. There are no Y seams involved it is all simple piecing with 60 degree triangles.
Esther made her first quilt using a Hoffman Panel called Wanderlust-Italy. It turned out so neat, and is made with 7 repeats of the same panel. That may sound like a lot, but most panels are about 24" so less than a meter.
After some browsing she found several more quilts made with panels that we have in our shop that I thought I would share with you.
I absolutely love this Giraffe one and I may just have to make it for myself, if the panels are not sold out in the next few days.
This one was done with the Dream Big panel from Hoffman, and we have quite a wide variety of different colors of these flowers in stock and all of them would look amazing done up.
Another one that totally surprised me with how neat it looks is this one done with a Call of The Wild Print. I think any of the panels from this collection would turn out absolutely amazing.
If you would like to learn how to do this and make your own super unique quilt come join the class. I might join so I can make one and get it finished.
The evening class starts on Wednesday at 7pm. The class is about two hours long. You will than meet again the next two Wednesdays again from 7-9pm. The dates are October 9, 16, and 23.
The full day class is on Wednesday, October 16 from 10am till about 4pm.
You can click here to sign up for the class, just scroll down and select the full day or evening option.
If you buy the supplies at our shop there is no class fee, if you use fabrics from your own stash you will need to pay $25. For the class you will need 6 or 7 repeats of your chosen panel, a 60 degree ruler and clips or pins. We have three cutting stations with rotary cutters, mats and 6x24 rulers and 3 pressing stations with wool mats and oliso irons, but you are welcome to bring your own if you.
We have fallen in love with the Acorn Precision Pressing System and it would be extremely helpful for this quilt, as it gives you incredibly flat seams!
There are two other classes happening next week as well that I will mention quickly, the Jelly Roll Rug is an evening class starting on Tuesday October 8 at 7pm, with the second session on October 15, you will need to come to both and there will be a little homework. Again the class is free if the supplies are bought at our shop.
We also have the Adventure Time Backpack class. You need Bag Making Experience to sew this bag. It is a two day class on October 10 and 11 from 10am-4pm both days and all the prep work needs to be done ahead of time. The cost to attend this one is $40 plus supplies.
Have a great weekend, I will be hanging out in the shop tomorrow for the sale,
