CURRENT CLASS SCHEDULE

  • 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)

  • Hand Applique Basics
    Do you love the look of hand appliqué and want a portable project? Learn the basics of needle-turn appliqué.

She will guide you in making bias strips to make a basket handle and stem. This course will cover curves, inner and outer points.
    You will not complete a pillow in class, but be on the way to finishing a sweet design that can be used in a throw pillow or wallhanging, etc..

  • 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., Oct. 8 (9:30a-3:30p) min. 3/max 8

  • NEW! Scrappy "Many Trips Around the World"
    Come along with us on this Scrappy Many Trips Around the World adventure! This is a great quilt for confident beginners and experienced quilters alike. The easy strip piecing method makes blocks go together quickly. It’s a great way to use up your scraps, jelly rolls and fat quarters!
    In class you will learn how to mix fabrics for your totally scrappy quilt. Come with a sense of adventure and a willingness to combine all those scraps you have collected from previous projects!
    Students will receive a complete lesson plan with pattern and supply list at the first class. We will complete as many blocks in class as we can (there will be homework). Students will be able to continue the process to make a throw quilt measuring 50” X 62”.
    Thurs., Oct. 13 & 20 (9:30am-1:30pm); min. 3 / max 16
    class fee $48.00 - view/print supply list

  • NEW! Let's Trim a Tall Tree
    It's already time to start thinking about Christmas! Do you really want to get out that Christmas tree? Or perhaps you have a small space to decorate with no room for a real tree. This is your chance to create a tall tree (approx. 77") that hangs on the wall…it doesn't take up any floor space and is fun to make!
    This tree is paper-pieced and comes complete with tree skirt. Please note this is not a "learn to paper-piece" class; if you've never taken a basic paper-piecing class, you will want that class first. We will review the technique in class, but the whole process will not be taught in detail.
    Sat., Oct. 15 (9:30a-3:30p) min. 3/max 10

  • NEW! Working Toward Precision in Hand Appliqué
    Once you have learned the basic stitch in hand appliqué, your quest is to get better at doing it. You also want your piece to look good. So many times one wonders how a leaf wandered while it was being stitched? In this class, you will learn some methods and techniques to help keep appliqué elements in place, to stitch smooth curves, to add interesting layers, to do preconstruction of units, and how to approach and think about any appliqué pattern you are considering. We will make one Oak Reel and Leaf block (pattern supplied in class), but you can always make several and assemble into a quilt. The class is designed for beginner and intermediate students of hand appliqué.
    Prerequisite: Basic Hand Applique lessons
    Tues., Nov. 15 & Thurs., Nov. 17 (1-4p)
    min. 5/max 12
