Teacher: Barbara Gutierrez
With this technique you will quilt your quilt as you piece it. Barb will then show you how to make sashings to finish your blocks. Each side of your quilt can have it's own look - It is a two- for-one project.
Chris has designed this sampler to give you a taste of many quilting techniques. Each block is a lesson of its own and you will do two blocks per week. In order to take this class you need to be able to do independent rotary cutting and have an accurate ¼” seam allowance. In addition to this class you will get a one-on-one class with Chris, prior to the first class, to choose your fabric, while she gives you a lesson in color, texture, and value. Class minimum - 4 INTERMEDIATE

The 3-D crystals appear to float on the background. This quilt is easier than it looks. It is all strip pieced, no y-seams. INTERMEDIATE
This crazy patch block is made using a “shuffle the deck” method. It is such fun. You won't be able to stop with just one quilt. Once you understand the method, you can rework it for any size block you want. This quilt is made using 1/3 yard cuts or layer cakes (10” squares). Buy a kit to make a quilt like ours, or make just a few blocks and you have a table runner. This is a technique class addressing only the blocks. INTERMEDIATE
This quilt has the look of a fancy pinwheel without the headache of making triangles. It is all done with strip piecing, but here's the cool thing about this pattern: While making the twin size quilt, you will be able to make a second smaller quilt from the trimmings. Or even better, you can make the first quilt a lap size, and get a table runner, AND the second quilt. WHAT A DEAL!
DOUBLE WEDDING RING
$40 + pattern INTERMEDIATE
Have you thought about making a double wedding ring quilt? Chris will start you small with this Judy Niemeyer pattern. You'll then have the knowledge you need to make a quilt should you decide. This class meets two days in a row, so you can leave your machines.
Doesn't this fun block look complicated? It is much easier than it looks. The block and border are cut at the same time. Barb will show you how. You can finish it to whatver size quilt you choose.
TWIST & SHOUT
$18 + book
This cute table topper will be done in no time. You need only three fabrics and the big bonus is that this inexpensive book is full of more runners and toppers.
BRAID IN A DAY
$24 + pattern
Eleanor Burns has created another great pattern and Chris will show you her method for creating this braid. Our sample makes a lovely fall quilt, but this would be lovely for Christmas or in whatever colorway works for you. INTERMEDIATE
This is a great second class for those who are ready to move on from a beginning class. It can be made any size you choose. This pattern uses a product called Thangles, which makes perfect half square triangles every time, and therefore perfect stars. INTERMEDIATE
This runner looks like stained glass, but is not the technique which uses fusible bias. The prairie points are made using a strip technique, not individual points. You'll know fall has arrived when you put this out on your table. Be bold. Make your pumpkins purple like our sample.
$24 + pattern
This cute see-through bag is perfect for traveling with your hand work. There are compartments for threads, tools, and your small projects. Chris will show you a simple method for putting in zippers.
In just two short hours you will learn all about making this cozy quilt. You can stay and sew for the rest of the afternoon at no charge.
EASY STRIPE RUNNER
$12 + pattern
Only 5 seams and you have a stylish runner. Chris will show you how to make the basic runner and then hints on making adjustments to suit your fabric for future runners. You may also choose to make a large topper instead of the runner. Chris will help you figure your fabric. THE COZY QUILT has a wide selection of border prints, which are used in the runner.
ONE BLOCK WONDER
$36 + book
One fabric is all it takes to make a one-of-a-kind work of art. No two quilts will look the same. You'll be playing with color and design with your kaleidoscope blocks. INTERMEDIATE
