CURRENT CLASS SCHEDULE

First, we’ll review the basic stitch and how to do curves and points. Then, we will quickly move to the lovely lily wall hanging piece you will be working on and work through it from start to finish.

The pattern is included in the price of the class and will be given out at the first class.

  • Beginning Baltimore Album Quilt
    (Prerequisite: Confident beginner to advanced appliqué skill)
    Join us for a series of 6 classes that will introduce the fine 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.
    3rd Fridays - 6 classes: Aug. 19, Sept. 16, Oct. 21, Nov. 18, (Dec. no class), Jan. 20, Feb. 17 (10am-12:30pm)

  • 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.
    Sat., Aug. 20 OR Thurs., Sept. 1 (9:30a-3:30p) min. 3/max 8
