Two of the many!

Before I left for vacation back in April I needed to complete my class quilts for the Corn Wagon as they were to be turned in while I would be gone.  For my classes I choose a couple fun and easy quilts.  Easy enough for beginners but also fun for the more advanced.  The first is called Vinette and it is a free download on Art Gallery Fabrics website.  The fabrics I chose to use were the blues and greens from the Chickopee line from Densie Schmitt.  Anything she creates I love.

 And this is everything left over from my fat quarters.  Not enough for another quilt, so why in the heck not use them on the back. 
 As you may already know that the binding is my favorite thing on the quilt to do.  Some people dread it, but not me.  Give me more!  This class is on July 17th @ 6:00 p.m. if you are interested.  And guess what if you like this exact one, well your in luck because we just happen to have kits saved for the class.  Look us up at to sign up for the class.  I would love to see you.
 The second quilt is a modern twist on a stacked coins quilt using the Totally Tubular method that Tula Pink uses in her book Quilts from The House of Tula Pink.  I think this book is awesome.  She really covers some great stuff in it.  The photograghy and set up is amazing.  Check it out if you haven't already. 
The fabrics chosen for this quilt were mostly from the Notting Hill collection from Joel Dewberry for Free Spirit.  The color scheme red, teal, grays and gold.  There are a few Moda and Riley Blake fabrics as well.
And of course the backing and the binding.

This class was last week unfortunately, but we still have kits available if you are interested.  It includes 10 fat quarters, 1 3/4 yard solid white and the binding.  Call me or better yet stop in and see me if your in my neck of the woods.
Now off to the Panguitch Quilt Walk for the weekend where I will be teaching the Tea Party quilt that I made last year.  Remember it, here's a couple photos to remind you.  Have a great weekend.  I hope you get to spend time at your sewing machine.

What a nice class you're organizing. I really should come, if there wasn't a ocean between us.
