- Beginning Baltimore Album Quilt
(Prerequisite: Confident beginner to advanced appliqué

art of Baltimore Album Quilts. Each lesson presents an understanding
of Baltimore Album quilts and their design that was so popular
in the mid 1800's. Each lesson also teaches one complete block,
and then enriches that basic lesson with additional patterns
for more practice. As you complete a block each month your journey
toward producing your own quilt will be well on its way. The
journey will take you from papercuts to wreaths and lyres.

- Triple Dresden Tree Skirt
Here it is already mid-way through the year! We think of it,
but no one wants to say it
"it's a good time to
start a Christmas project!" Dresden plates are very
popular now, but they can also be intimidating. This class has
a two-fold purpose: Learn how to make a Dresden plate, and make
a Christmas tree skirt. Another bonus
it's made with the
Quilt-as-you-go technique, so it can easily be finished in time
for Christmas without the extra quilting cost. It can be made
scrappy or with just 2 fabrics
the choice is yours. Don't
forget batting and backing, as you will need these when you start
your skirt. The pattern and Creative Grids 15 degree triangle
will both be available at Painted Pony 'n Quilts. You will also
need basic sewing supplies as well as a rotary cutter and mat,
a walking foot for your machine, and thread to match.
