Fall Class Announcement!

Yellow Brick Road
O'Connor 2013
My partner in crime Linda M and I will be teaching classes at Sew Portland again this fall! Over the course of several classes we'll be piecing two quilt tops using shortcuts, pre-cuts and easy-peasy piecing, then spending time learning how to finish those quilts with the infamous "quilt as desired." The classes are geared towards beginners, but any level quilter will have fun with strip piecing; playing with the stack, slash and shuffle technique or free motion quilting. Does this all sound like Greek to you? Come to class--you'll be talking "quilt" in no time!

O'Connor 2013

First up is "Yellow Brick Road" an older but very popular pattern by Atkinson Designs. Fat quarter and scrappy friendly. Class meets on Friday, September 13 and Saturday, September 14, from 10:00 to 3:00 each day.

Crazy patch blocks
O'Connor 2013
Next is "Crazy Patch". This technique produces blocks that resemble crazy quilt blocks--you will be surprised at how easy it is, yet no two blocks end up the same! Sew Portland will have class kits of pre-cut batiks for a head start on this one. This class meets Friday and Saturday, September 20 and 21, also 10:00 to 3:00 each day.

Need help to finish your quilt? Spend Saturday, October 4 from 9:30 to 2:30 learning how to plan and execute the quilting that finishes your beautiful work! We will practice free motion quilting although we will discuss other ways to get that quilt finished as well.

For more information, to sign up and for class lists, contact Sew Portland at 207-797-6700. Hope to see you there!
