Workshop Sample

This is such a cute sampler quilt from Yellow Creek Quilt Patterns , and the pattern has a lot of techniques and methods in it. I thought it would be a great Saturday Sampler workshop.
I'm working out the list of techniques that will be taught, then we will pick a start date and run it for 6 months at Fabric Etc in Bellingham, WA. It will be a learning class, rather than a 'make and take' class. When I teach, my focus in on techniques, tips, time savers, etc. All things that will carry over into all your future work.

Wouldn't this section make a cute little quilt, this section finishes at appox. 16 x 24.

I've been getting my secret sewing project bound and it needs a sleeve.  Yes, I got the label and the sleeve on the donation quilt.  I'm also trying to clean out clutter and to need what I have and in the process I found a label that belongs on another quilt I did in 2004. It had been removed as requested by a show at some point in time.  I guess they didn't realize we could cover up the label with a piece of muslin(?)  My Girlfriends quilt  (pansys) has been trimmed, and I've pinned the binding to one side, getting it ready, and I'm working on a customers custom quilt  that is 88 x 88  It has lots of S.I.D. so pictures will be kind of boring for a while.
Anyways.........I guess what I'm saying is "I've been busy with stuff that isn't blog worthy"!

This quilt will make for a wonderful teaching project! I like how the designer took a sampler quilt and made it into a Flag design as well!
All the best on this upcoming class!

Wow, that is a really cute sampler quilt! What a clever idea! And I'm with you, teach the techniques, tips etc. It can make a world of difference to know the ins and outs that save work and time. Hey, there's no applique on this!

It sounds like you're really busy! Keep that up and soon you'll have something blog-worthy. Besides, we like to hear from you no matter what you're up to. *grin*

Sounds like you are my kind of teacher. I take classes specifically to learn techniques and tips.
I do think that flag sampler is wonderful. I'm sure there is a lot to learn in the making!

That quilt is a wonderful learning quilt. I wish I could take the class and learn a few tricks!

Excellent choice for your class - the variety of blocks in that flag will really get the students going!! A very neat project.

I think that would make a perfect and unusual sampler for learning techniques!!
