Our next class is Burgoyne Surrounded.

Hello Everyone,
We’ve had a busy couple of weeks.  We enjoyed our time in Hickory last week.  We did a program for their morning and their night guild.  Such nice ladies.  We are looking forward to being a vendor at their quilt show in October.  This week we went to Columbia.  Again, we had a good time and saw a lot of good friends. Tomorrow we are heading for Maggie Valley for a program and a workshop.  I am looking forward to beautiful, cool weather in the mountains.

August Events

Burgoyne Surrounded
Class dates for August are Friday, August 26 OR Saturday, August 27, 2022.
Burgoyne Surrounded is a traditional pattern using simple strip piecing techniques.
Skill level:  confident beginner. Class fee is $38.00 and includes a handout.

The name of this quilt refers to a battle in the American Revolution when American soldiers surrounded and forced the surrender of British General Burgoyne and his 6000 soldiers.  So many traditional quilt designs have a legend behind their names.  It’s always interesting to read about the history behind the designs.
Easy piecing.  It can be done in 2 fabrics, 2 colors and multiple fabrics or it can be multi-colored.
We do have queen size kits available using the fabrics shown above.
The border print is included.  Size is 92″ x 92″.  $159.95.  Only 3 kits left.

Here is another version.
Cindy made it look scrappy but she actually cut her strips from an ombre fabric.

Cindy made this one a long time ago.  Just two colors will make a nice quilt.  It’s even hand quilted.

To register for the class, call or text Cindy at 704-376-2531.
Classes are held at Cool Spring UMC, 1902 Mocksville Hwy., Cleveland, NC 27013.
That’s about 6 miles east of Statesville on Hwy. 64.
Cindy will send a supply list when you register.

The church is easily accessible from I-40 or I-77.

Class will be from 10 am-4 pm but we have the church open by 9 am so you can get set up
and have a cup of coffee before we begin at 10 am.
As you know, eating lunch is an important part of the day.
Bring a sandwich or a casserole and we’ll provide sides, chips, desert and tea.

Be sure to bring your “show and tell” quilts. We love to see what you are working on.

Once you are registered, mail a check 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.

We hope to see you in class or at a guild event in August.
