2017 Multiday Classes

410 Amusement
(2 Day Class, Saturday and Sunday)

  • Instructor: Michelle Renee Hiatt
  • Skill Level: Intermediate
  • Description: 

    Amusement is a fun and quirky quilt inspired by the Ferris Wheels found on the Amusement Piers, in New Jersey, where Michelle grew up. Michelle designed this quilt for Modern 180, Studio 180 Design's Modern Pattern line. This pattern is made using Studio 180 Design's Tucker TrimmerⒸ I, Wing ClipperⒸ I and the Corner PopⒸ tools. Make this fabulous design without paper piecing!

    You will use yardage for the background and accent (green), and for each Ferris Wheel you will use 3 values of one color. So, for example, if you decide to use red for one block, you'll need a light red, a medium red, and a dark red. It's up to you to decide how many different color Ferris Wheels you have in your quilt. Pattern offers Wall (4 Blocks), Throw (9 Blocks) and Twin (12 Blocks) sizes.

    The class will include step-by-step use for all three tools, as well as additional examples of how to use the Studio 180 Tools to make your quilting life easier. Plus, tons of tips on matching points, squaring up your blocks and general machine piecing tips and tricks. So delightful!

416  Applique Quilting in Layers
(2 Day Class, Friday and Saturday)

  • Instructor: Terry Kramzar
  • Skill Level: Intermediate to Advanced
  • Description: Make this small Tulip Quilt to learn an innovative quilting technique. Not free motion quilting-- just straight stitching with a regular foot. Quilt through the 4 inch squares, one at a time, through the top and batting. Accurately add center squares. Learn to machine applique in 4 inch blocks or quickly fuse the Tulip, or an image of your own design. Sew the pre-quilted blocks together, add the backing and quilt through all three layers. Is this "quilt as you go"? Not really! We do not sew the backing on in little 4 inch squares, but all in one piece, 20" by 20" quilting through the grid lines. At this point you can be finished quilting or you can free motion quilt the applique as desired.
