Secrets of the Quick Curve Ruler
Saturday, Feb. 12, 2022
10 am – 1 pm

Make the most of the versatile Quick Curve Ruler and/or QCR Mini Ruler from Sew Kind of Wonderful! I’ll share my special tips for cutting, sewing, and pressing curves. You’ll learn how to “read” the rulers, cut accurate curves every time, sew concave and convex curves together without using a single pin, and square up your blocks. You’ll have fun making practice curves. Although this is primarily a techniques class, I’ll help you get started making a quilt from one of the many patterns offered by Sew Kind of Wonderful. Cost: $29

Bonus! Class will include a mini trunk show of my quilts made with Sew Kind of Wonderful’s Quick Curve rulers.

Required: Quick Curve Ruler or QCR Mini by Sew Kind of Wonderful

 


Wonky Dresden Neighborhood

Saturday, April 23, 2022 — 10 am – 4:30 pm

Create your own delightfully wonky Dresden Neighborhood using a Dresden ruler, the Dresden Neighborhood pattern by Persimon Dreams, and my tips and suggestions. The height of the buildings, shape of the roofs, and custom doors and windows are all up to you – the architect, contractor, and builder! Your choices of fabrics and color also go a long way toward customizing your neighborhood. The mini quilt was designed to finish at 24” square but you can make yours bigger to incorporate other elements. Cost: $49

Required: Dresden Quilt Ruler by EZ Quilting and Dresden Neighborhood pattern by Persimon Dreams
