Worldwide Quilting Day

 Worldwide Quilting Day is almost here! 

As a shop we decided to celebrate the day with a few tutorials and informative presentations using the video platform Zoom. These presentations will all take place on Saturday March 20. 

Saturday Morning at 10:00 am I will be doing a video tutorial on the Noodlehead Pencil Pouch. This pouch is quick to make and is great introduction to zippers. It doesn't use much fabric at all and fat quarters work really well. I love giving them as gifts to Teachers and friends. 

Their isn't much of a pattern just a written tutorial to follow, but it is free and can be found by clicking HERE.

At Noon Esther is going to be giving a presentation on Backings. She plans to go over what we like to use as backings for our projects and why and also how to determine how much backing you would need for your project. 

At 2:00pm Carrie has a little tutorial for the Moda Love quilt. This is a free pattern download available in 3 different sizes. The pattern utilizes precuts which makes shopping for the fabric fairly easy in terms of what to buy, the hard part is choosing just one to use! She has a few tips on how to trim the half square triangle units, and a few ideas on how to enlarge the size if you wanted to. You can download the Moda Love pattern HERE

All three of these classes will be done on Zoom as i mentioned above. We will have all three presentations on the same link with intermissions between.
