This exclusive new block of the month club is unique in that you will be able to choose your own fabric and your own setting. Your finished quilt will be one of a kind! We will focus monthly demonstrations on learning several techniques for making HSTs (half square triangles AKA Happy Sexy Triangles) while piecing 14 specialty blocks made completely of HSTs . You can coordinate your quilt using three or four colors or it can be scrappy (example: several different reds would count as one color). Then to make it even more personal, there are three fabulous settings to choose from! Your monthly class dues will include an allowance of $215.00 total on a gift card to use at the shop for fabric and supplies that YOU get to choose! You will learn many tips and tricks for finishing as you attend nine demo sessions and master the art of HSTs!
This class is a one-hour demonstration only but you will learn several ways to make HSTs. You'll learn why it's important which direction you press (hint: it's not always to the dark side). Determine how to turn your HSTs to make the seams nest in your 12.5" blocks. All three settings will be taught, then you choose the one you like best. What is the measurement of your borders? Let's learn the easy way to determine finished size. Many other tips and tricks will be demonstrated. Join us for some happy, sexy triangle time!
You will do all of your sewing at home so no need to bring supplies to class each month. We would love for you to bring your finished blocks each month so we can enjoy the unique nature of each club member's creation.Do not purchase fabrics for this quilt before class.
Janet will discuss fabric selection and amounts in the first demonstration. Then you can use your gift card allowance each month to select your own fabrics and supplies as recommended by the instructor.
