Connie would like to share her method for making tipsy blocks which create movement across the quilt.  It’s easy to piece, and the result will be a quilt that will make you smile.  Though it may look complicated, once you get into the rhythm, it’s simply fun.  So, grab your fat quarters and let’s create some joy.




Fun stash buster!  Create log cabin style blocks with a twist by setting them on-point. This little Modern quilt is quick to make using a variety of scraps or a Charm-Pack while following easy pattern steps. The Pattern can be adapted to go tiny (Micro Mini) or Mini or make it larger than 11” x 14” the choice is yours.  During the workshop, techniques on design and piecing will be taught as well as a demonstration on how to quilt your finished top in a modern way.  Also learn how to make a smaller binding that fits the size of your quilt.  Your quilt top can be completed in class with only the quilting left to do. Pattern must be purchased prior to the class and will be available February 2021 at




Let’s have a fun day using a sweatshirt and recreating it into a comfortable stylish jacket for the summer.  It can be long or short, loose or fitted and a color of your choice. The edges are fully trimmed using Dresden blades which creates a clean finish on all outside edges.  Adding a collar and a creative zipper makes this jacket a show-stopper. Piping and embellishing can be added to the design.   Each student is required to purchase a $12.00 pattern which includes the jacket zipper. There will be some advance preparation before class so you can complete the jacket to wear.
