Posts Tagged ‘Quilt Class’

I will be teaching a class at Pine Tree Quilt Shop in Salem, NH.  The pattern was a mystery created by Debbie Caffrey.  The pattern name is Good Night, Sweetheart. It is now available as a non-mystery pattern. You can make it in two sizes.  I chose to make it in the larger size.  The finished size the is 81″ x 96″.  I did multiple borders. The pattern instructions were for a single large border, so my quilt measures differently. Goodnight

The pattern requires 4 fabrics, Light, Medium, Medium Dark and Dark.  I found a blue and yellow plaid in my stash to base my color choices off of.  The block looks more difficult than it actually is.  There are no fancy cutting.  It’s all squares rectangles and a few triangles. Goodnight 2

Goodnight 3You can even make a mini quilt from scraps you cut in the process of making the block. I love mini quilts. Especially ones made in the process of making another quilt.

If you are interested in the class. Go to Pine Tree Quilt Shop for more details.

I am currently quilting the top. The design is inspired by an on-line class I took by Lisa Calle.  I hope to get it done in the next day or two. As long as we don’t loose power from the snow storm.Goodnight 4

You don’t need to quilt yours so elaborately. I just wanted to practice some of what I learned in the on-line class.

I hope to see you in the class.  It’s a fun quilt. I’ll give you some tips regarding the piecing process and border choices.  Did you notice I cut the plaid on the diagonal for the first border?

What do you think?  Do you like the plaid?

Started with thisHere is a little teaser for the Border Creek Station Mystery Club starting this Sunday at Pine Tree Quilt Shop in Salem, NH.

I started with this stack of fabric and two charm packs. I was so excited, I opened one of the packs before I took the picture.In Process

The pattern designer keeps you very organized. You start with 10 large zipper bags. At the end of each step, you have a list of what you should have in each bag.  To the right is a picture of my baggies about halfway through.Quilt Top Completed

Here is the worst of all teases. This is a cropped picture of my completed quilt top folded up.  I know, it’s mean.  But it is supposed to be a mystery.

There is still room/time to sign up. So call Pine Tree right now.

Anything Goes Star Tessellation

Gyleen (pattern designer) called her pattern Anything Goes because you can use any fabrics (color and/or style) you want.  There is no planning involved.  No design wall needed. You just sew.  That’s what makes it fun!

The finished size on the pattern is 76″ x 94″ but you can make it any size you want by adding or subtracting the amount of strips you use.  Mine came out a lot bigger.  I just couldn’t stop making blocks.

The following are the fabric requirements.  To start, you will need to have all your 2″ strips sub cut into (4) 5″ and (4) 3 1/2″ segments. 

My quilt it darker that the one pictured on the pattern.
