Friday, March 20 – Chicken Challenge                          Sunday, March 22 – Pieced Pets

Even if barnyard animals are not your thing, or you don’t have a pet (and no one you know does either), consider either of these workshops an opportunity to learn a fun new technique.  All of these quilts use paper piecing techniques to create an abstract interpretation of the photo or object — be it car, plant or animal. Based on the design and piecing techniques of Ruth McDowell, these designs take traditional patchwork a step further through the use of unexpected fabric choices.

In these classes, you will select from several patterns to create a wall hanging. The patterns for the classes are available from Ann’s website. There are several patterns for either of the classes. Ann will have patterns available at the workshops. A brief discussion introduces the methods and techniques of freezer paper templates. You will then prepare a freezer paper template for your pattern and begin the process of selecting fabrics for your design.  Sewing methods and sewing order will also be discussed to complete your wall hanging.

Join us for a fun experience and make new quilting friends!
