This class combines aspects of my earlier classes with my evolving techniques of fabric collage. Cutting Loose demonstrates a looser approach to the piecing and assembly of a wall quilt. Emphasis will be placed on the collage piecing process. Patterns or templates will not be used, although designs will be available from Susan for a small fee. Students will sketch their design onto a foundation fabric and fill in the design with fabrics of their choice. This encourages playfulness, serendipity, and a willingness to “cut loose.” Due to time constraints, students need to create a fish, butterfly, or bug. The supply list for Cutting loose is now available.
Length: 12 hours (two 6-hour classes)
Date: May 23 & 24,2016
Location: Bethlehem Lutheran.

On the Street Where She Lives…goes the song from the musical My Fair Lady and so goes the inspiration for your July speaker, Sherri McConnell–Moda fabric designer, blogger extraordinaire, pattern designer, Etsy shop owner, and much more!
Sherri will join us for our annual Spring Gathering on Monday, July 18th! Starting the day with her workshop offering, Maholo (Noon to 4pm). Maholo is a brand new pattern – debuting at this Spring’s Quilt Market! Inspired by a much loved McConnell family quilt and named after the street Sherri lives on, Maholo, in it’s full size is 60″ x 60″…but there is also a mini version for lovers of the small quilt! The pattern will be available for you to purchase at the workshop.
Sherri has a great technique for making this block, so don’t let the curves give you hives! You can expect to complete one of the the nine blocks in this 3-hour workshop! Now, what can be better than spending the day with a Moda fabric designer….oh…ice cream…yes! Following your workshop will be our guild’s Ice Cream Social with Sherri presenting her lecture, A Quilting Life and trunk show…now that’s pretty much a very fair day! Supplies for the workshop.
P.S. Want to see more Mahalo (called FunFare for the article)…visit Sherri’s blog at www.aquiltinglife.com/2015/11/
