Following the Quilt in a Day pattern called Whirligig, we will use a Jelly Roll, or cut strips, and solid strips to sew, cut, flip, and whirl our blocks into this fun and easy quilt! Each strip set will make a positive and negative block. It's so easy, you will not believe it! Once you learn this block, the possibilities for other quilts are endless! Pattern available from instructor for $9.00. Optional 6 ½" Half Square Triangle Square Up ruler helpful for trimming blocks, also available from instructor, for $13.95.
This is a great opportunity to use one or two focus fabrics. One for the border and sashing squares and one for the block centers.
Would really work well with sports fabrics. The best part of this class is all straight lines. No half square triangles
(Yes, you really can complete this in one day.)
Melissa Wells has designed a fun and fast way to sew a tuffet that will allow you to change covers using the same foundation. In class you will sew and construct the tuffet. The button is removable, so changing covers for all occasions is easy and fun. So you can make covers for Christmas, Easter, summer, 4th of July, fall, your favorite ball team or just because you can. The possibilities are endless! They make great gifts. You will want to make more when you see how easy they are to make!
Kit is $95.00. The kit will include everything you need (pattern, ruler, wood, foam, etc) except tuffet feet and fabric. You can get feet from Home Depot or Lowes (you do not need tuffet feet for class).
