Member-led Workshops

with Reba Siero

Saturday, 9:30 am to 1:30 pm

Reba will be demonstrating several techniques that will improve your quilt making skills. Included will be applying binding with mitered corners that will add the finishing touch to any quilt. She will show you how to create continuous bias strips that can be used in many different ways in quilt making and beyond. If there are specific techniques you would like to learn, please let Reba know, so that she can prepare ahead.

Bring your supplies and leave with a Spring table runner quilted and ready to go! You can make it scrappy or plan your color palette of favorite fat quarters waiting on the shelf, along with batting and backing fabric.

It’s easy and fun and a great technique to add to your toolbox!

Join us at the May 15 Workshop.

Table Runner Measures 15″ x 45″

With just 12 jelly roll/ or 2 1/2”strips, you can make a tote bag perfect for carrying around a large quilt, or even a few smaller quilts. This workshop can help you with picking colors to coordinate. If you don’t want to buy an entire jelly roll, just use 12, 2 1/2” strips from your stash. It also gives you practice with machine quilting, (whether it’s straight line, walking foot, or free motion). Hope you have fun!

The class will cover making the strips, then putting them together in either a quilt similar to this or cutting the strips into narrower strips and making a match stick style design which will look like pick up sticks scattered in background. To get ready for class, save small strips, odd shaped pieces, corners clipped off snowball blocks. Size should be at least 1.5” wide so it won’t disappear in 1/4 in seams. This is a great technique for using up your scraps.

The Christmas garland is adapted from a pattern I’ve seen on Pinterest many times as a Bead Garland or Bead Quilt. It’s a very simple block. I thought it would be lovely in Christmas colors and scrappy, since I have a huge Christmas fabric inventory. I drew it out, then someone posted a Christmas version. I made it for a dear young friend who has helped our family a lot during Covid.

Christmas Garland can be made using a variety of fabrics and a background. I used Christmas fabrics from my inventory and a white on white background. The top is 46 x 58 without borders. There are 48 blocks which finish at 8 x 8.
