June Quilting Class – Strips, Strips and Strips


This photo shows the quilt in progress.

DATES:  Friday, June 16 OR Saturday, June 17, 2017

TIME:  10 am – 4 pm
COST: $35.00
Our next class is not very far away.  Friday, June 16, 2017 OR Saturday, June 17, 2017.  We are calling this class – Strips and Strips and Strips.  I have enclosed a couple of pictures of the sample I am working on.  Many of you know I am obsessed with working through our “stash” leftover from cutting everything that arrives.  For this class you will need your Creative Grid 60 degree triangle ruler and a bunch of strips.  This is also a good project to use up a bunch of odd colors of thread and half-wound bobbins.  
 
 
I cut my strips 2” wide, but you have a lot of options for this class.  We are going to build a strip set at least 8 1/2” wide.  My strip sets started with a dark fabric and ended with a light fabric.  You could start with hot pink and end with lime green.  
You can cut all your strips the same size.  You can use wider strips and fewer fabrics.  You could use jelly rolls.  You could use random widths so that nothing has to match.  You can make every set the same so that you get more “mirror image” effects.  
 
For now, just starting stash cleaning.  Pull out those small pieces of fabric and get them ready to cut.  I will send out more specific cutting instructions and MAYBE a finished picture by next week.
 
REMEMBER TO BRING SOMETHING FOR “SHOW AND TELL”.

Class starts at 10 am and finishes about 4 pm but we’ll have the building open at 9:00 am so plan to arrive in time to have a cup of coffee and set up so we’ll be ready to start at 10:00 am.  The class will be held at Cool Spring Methodist Church, 1902 Mocksville Rd, Cleveland, NC—that is Hwy. 64 about 8 miles East of Statesville, and is easily accessible from either I-77 or I-40.

As you know, eating lunch is an important part of the day.  Bring a sandwich, or your favorite recipe, and we’ll provide sides, chips, desert and tea.  Quilters are good cooks too so there is always plenty to share.

To register for the class, call Cindy Page, 704-376-2531 to reserve your space, then mail checks payable to The Quilter’s Gallery to 224 Woodleaf Road, Cleveland, NC 27013.   Payment is required at the time of registration to hold your space in the class.
