All Hallows Eve is Nigh! Do you have some stitching to do this frightful weekend? I'm not talking Franken-style. I mean of the quilting sort, of course. As part of my own Halloween tradition, between answering the door for tricks and treats, I look forward to an evening of handwork while watching Halloween flicks (nothing too scary for this gal). Since wool applique has my heart, I have my wool stitching all ready to rock-n-roll. I may even put on a costume...

Speaking of next year's projects... Join us as we conjure up this frightfully fantastic quilt during 2023! The Hocus Pocus quilt by Corinne Sovey will be such a MAGICAL quilt-along! Natalie Smith will lead this Block-of-the-Month class here at the Schoolhouse every first Thursday, starting January 2023 and ending October 2023. At each BOM class, we will distribute fabrics, do a giveaway, have a show & tell, and Natalie will demonstrate the techniques used in that month’s blocks.
Our kits for the Hocus Pocus quilt feature the best-selling Spooky ‘N Sweeter line from Art Gallery Fabrics and follows a mockup from Corinne Sovey herself. Kits using these exact fabrics will ONLY be available through this Block-of-the-Month program, and will be available to only 12 class members – so sign up today online! $30 registration fee secures your seat in class. Our BOM subscription program will automatically charge your credit card $20.99 per month for 10 months beginning in January and includes the pattern and kits for piecing the 60" x 72" quilt top.Of course, you can pull your own kit together. Simply join the class by registering for $30, then purchase the pattern and your own fabric selection with your 15% off class discount at the Corn Wagon.
Confident beginning quilters who have completed at least one pieced quilt should be able to make this quilt, with the instruction provided in the program. Designed as a modern skill building program, techniques used in this quilt include: traditional piecing, half-square triangles, snowball corners, flying geese, foundation paper piecing, a small bit of applique, and inset circles. By starting in January, you'll easily have this quilt finished for next Halloween!
