OCTOBER – Mickey DePre

Wednesday, October 25, 9am to 4pm: Sew on the Go! Hand Piecing Block/Castle Wall Quilt (Kit fee $25)

Together we tackle a block that would cause you to pause at your machine but will become your go to for de-stressing. Hand Piecing Rocks! Join me for a slow speed workshop covering the tips and tricks of this much loved tradition. These versatile and complicated blocks become a joy to do when sewn by hand. Perfect points will happen! We will use traditional templates to cut out our shapes with hand scissors. This entire workshop is about easy peaceful quilting. A kit is required that will include a set of acrylic templates and other items (see supply list). All you need to bring is fabric (see supply list for amounts/detailed sizes), your favorite fabric scissors, two gel pens (light and dark), a thimble, and stories to share while we hand sew piecefully together. (yes a play on words there).
Cost: $50

Thursday, October 26, 9am to 4pm: Half-Scrap Quilts – Summer Carnival

summercarnivalHalf-Scrap, a few constant fabrics and a whole mess of scraps, is how I like to make my traditional pieced quilts. But if you taste runs to an even more constant fabric choice this pattern will still work for your palette. Of course we will never finish an entire quilt even in the 6HR format but we will get a few blocks done. A bonus table runner pattern based off each full quilt pattern will be provided for each workshop attendee. This pattern will use just a few blocks that can be achieved in a normal workshop day. So class blocks are just that, class blocks. There is no pressure to make the ultimate fabric choice for a quilt and buy/cut yardage. I encourage you to grab a bag of scraps and maybe 3-4 fat quarters and let’s just play with learning how to make these blocks and how to make color/fabric choices to make them sing.
Cost: $50
