May Quilting Class


May class in Cool Spring—Circle of Stars
 


 

 CLASS:  CIRCLE OF STARS
WHEN:  FRIDAY, MAY 26 or SATURDAY, MAY 27
TIME:  10 AM – 4 PM
COST:  $35 INCLUDES HANDOUT
LOCATION:  COOL SPRING UNITED METHODIST CHURCH

Hope everybody is well into their spring planting but saving time to do a little quilting along the way.  Patti and Mom have been busy in their gardens and I am waiting for their fruits and veggies to start pouring in—except for zucchini, which I’m sure will be plentiful again this year.

The project this month is Circle of Stars which is very simple piecing—triangles, squares, strips.  You can start pulling fabrics from your stash and have every star in the entire quilt a different fabric or have a plan and make all the blocks the same.  Contrast is the most important consideration.  Notice that even though the yellow is the brightest one in my stash it doesn’t give enough contrast to balance with all the other stars…glad this is only my practice block and I don’t have 20 more cut out!  This design can also be done with a dark background and light or bright stars…just remember contrast is the key.

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.

Fabric Shopping
Can’t make the class?  You are welcome to come and shop for fabric while others are in class.  All of prints and batiks are set up the the back of Fellowship Hall just like at a quilt show.  

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. A supply list with directions to the venue will be emailed to you upon registration.

 
 
Also, bring some device that will take photographs of each step of the process.

Hope to see you then.
