Join our Saturday Sampler program and create this beautiful sampler quilt by Joanna Figueroa of Fig Tree & Co. The Christmas Figs quilt includes 20 traditional quilt blocks using basic piecing techniques and a bit of appliqué. It’s a great project for confident beginners to experienced quilters.
The 11 month program begins with a 3 hour ORT class on Nov. 7th. Gail will provide an overview of the program, demo the steps to complete the blocks for month 1 and help participants shop for their fabrics. The fabric choices for this beautiful quilt are yours to make! How about some inspiration from the delightful blue and tan quilt made by Pat Sloan? Gail has chosen to use the Blush and Blue Collection by Kim Diehl and Henry Glass Fabrics for her quilt. The remaining classes are 1 hour demonstration classes. In months 1 thru 10, participants receive the cutting instructions and patterns to create 2 blocks. The program wraps up in month 11, with the cutting instructions and patterns for the cornerstone blocks and finishing instructions for the quilt. Gail will provide instruction on creating the blocks as written in the book and for those Studio 180 Design tool fans, will also “Tuckerize” the patterns. Sew each month’s blocks at home or consider registering for the Sit 'n Sew class that follows the demo and get Gail’s help to sew your blocks.
The Christmas Figs book will be given out in the last class and includes 10 extra projects for you to enjoy - table toppers, pillows, mini quilts, a tree skirt and more!
To make the program even better, we’ve added some great prizes! Attendance at each month’s demo class earns participants one ticket and bringing the completed blocks from the previous month earns a second ticket. Perfect attendance and having the completed blocks to show in class gives you 21 chances to win! Registration fee incudes the Christmas Figs book.
Prizes will be awarded in the September 11th class.
