Quilt Confetti? That's our kind of party, to be sure! Remember when we celebrated National Jelly Roll Day a few weeks back? One of the free Jelly Roll Quilt patterns from Moda called Step This Way caught Chris Chamberlain's eye. When our fresh collection of polka dots arrived, she knew it was time for the fun to begin. And what's the perfect backdrop for this rainbow of confetti? A favorite from Tula Pink's True Colors, of course! It's a combination fit for a festival! We'll have a limited number of kits available in-store tomorrow for $94.99 or if you're interested in the Step This Way pattern you can download it here free!
Sew-It-All Weekend: Santa's Workshop Friday & Saturday, November 19 & 20 With the holidays fast approaching we want you to ♫ "Sew it all - Sew it all - Sew it all the way!" ♫ Think of this Sew-It-All event as a Santa's Workshop where you can bring all your last minute Christmas sewing and, well, SEW-IT-ALL! Your $75 registration fee includes lunch both days so you can sew non-stop at our retreat center. Take advantage of the retreat discount at the shop during the event! We'll have some time to "show-and-tell" and of course goodies and maybe a game or two are always involved. Bring any quilting project and Chris & Jen will be there to lend advice and help you trouble shoot. With two whole days dedicated to finishing projects you really can be a Sew-It-All, even during the holidays! Only a few seats left so sign-up now online or at the shop.
Your next opportunity to perfect the EasyPiecing Grid method is coming up quick! The Scrappy Garden Path is a quilt intended to bring all your scraps together in beautiful way. The pattern comes from the Quilts for Kids book by TenSisters Handicraft (purchase by clicking here) and looks fabulous in any color combination you choose. It's especially festive in Christmas prints!
A variety of sizes can be made depending on how many panels you use and what size grid you choose. For example, Heather made the Scrappy Garden Path in the photo above using 12 panels of 1.5" finished grid and ended up with a 63" x 86" quilt while the one below was made following the size recommendation in the pattern book using 24 panels of 2" finished grid for a 100" x 112" king size quilt.
For this class, Heather recommends choosing either a 6 panel (50" x 56"), 12 panel (72" x 84") or 24 panel (100" x 112") quilt using the 2" finished EasyPiecing Grid. You can further reduce the size of your quilt as well as the amount of fabric needed by choosing to work with a smaller grid. Visit TenSisters.com for a size chart.
We have everything you need to get ready for class at the shop: books, grid and of course loads of Christmas fabric! Sign up now and bring your pre-cut squares and sewing machine to the Schoolhouse for this two-part class, November 15th and 29th, 6:00-9:00 p.m. where you will learn the EasyPiecing Grid method, and work on your new favorite Christmas quilt!
For a quick demo with Heather to see just how slick the EasyPiecing Grid is to use, hop on our Facebook page and watch yesterday's Live Sale broadcast. It's a chance to meet Heather from the comfort of your own sofa plus, you'll love the Patchwork Pumpkin project she shares. Bonus: it's available as a kit through the Live Sale!
