Upcoming Classes at the Pine Needle

Simply Dashing
Wednesday, Sept. 30, 2015  •  10 am – 4 pm

Simply Dashing 58 x 74

The classic Churn Dash block gets a stylish makeover in my new quilt design, Simply Dashing. I combined the Churn Dash block with a 4-Patch Wonder block (my name for a block made of four fabric repeats cut into squares and rotated to make a faux kaleidoscopic image), added an alternate block, and set all the blocks on point. The result is — well, simply dashing!

This class is a good choice for confident beginners ready to learn some new techniques as well as experienced quilters who enjoy the surprise of working with 4-Patch Wonder blocks. Like Forrest Gump’s box of chocolates, you never know what you’re going to get.


Sew with Dawn
Multiple sections — see below

I’m delighted to be part of the “Sew With” series at the Pine Needle, joining a talented team of quilting instructors ready to share their knowledge with you.

Need help starting or finishing a quilt? Stuck on an ongoing project? I’ll offer suggestions and advice while you work on any project you like in a relaxed and supportive setting. You’ll build skills and develop new friendships. All skill levels are welcome!
