Previous Offerings

Heart You Tote Bag
Simple is the name of the game for this class!  Learn the basics of piecing half square triangles, arranged into a cute heart and made into a super simple tote bag.  The construction of the bag includes a muslin interlining which makes for a strong bag, yet makes it easy to fold up and store away when not in use.  Guaranteed you’ll love this bag so much you’ll rush home to make more!

Finish It Up! Quilt Binding Workshop 
Bring your unbound, quilted project and learn the in’s and out’s of making, attaching and securing your quilt binding to your finished piece!  In this two hour session we’ll learn how to prepare our fabric for French fold binding on both the straight-grain and bias (depending on your project), how to attach it to the front of your quilt by machine, and how to tack it down to the back of the quilt by hand using a truly invisible stitch that goes quickly and holds securely.

Half Square Triangle Tote Bag 
Learn the basics of piecing half square triangles that will then be arranged into a block and then incorporated into a simple tote bag. Your bag will be lined with muslin, making it easy to store away when not in use, but lightweight, yet durable for all your carrying needs.  Because this is a beginner friendly class we’ll also talk about preparing fabric for cutting, the importance of pressing seams, and sewing with an accurate 1/4 seam allowance. This class will help you understand the importance of taking your time to get accurate results.

Modern Geometric Table Runner Workshop 
In this class we’ll be learning how to make half square triangles using Triangles On A Roll, a simple form of foundation paper piecing that allows you to piece multiple half square triangles at once – without squaring!  We’ll also learn a quick method for making flying geese blocks with perfect points every time.

Modern Maze Mini Quilt Workshop 
This class is all about making half square triangles!  We’ll be learning the very basics of foundation paper piecing using the Triangles on a Roll to make all of our half square triangles.  I’ll be talking about all sorts of rotary cutting, sewing and pressing basics, too.  We’ll also talk about how to add hanging pockets to your finished piece.
