Just Leaf It: Freehand leaves for borders and setting blocks
Have you feathered everything that you can think of to the point that you’re doing feathers in your sleep?  This class offers a creative alternative.  What you can feather you can leaf. In this hands-on workshop we will start with learning how to make the basic leaf shape.  Kim will show you how to do several border treatments from simple to complex.  We will work on block designs including Double Wedding Ring, setting triangles, and how to fill odd shapes with freehand leaves.  This class is for all skill levels.

11:30am to 1:30pm $40 
Heavy Metal Quilting (Kim’s NEWEST class!!)
With the look and feel of rod iron fencing Heavy Metal gets its name.  Don’t be fooled by the name, these designs are made using soft curves and spirals. You will learn how to quilt the border treatment that started it all with a little bit of marking to divide up the space and turn the corners with ease. Kim will explain the process of creating unique custom designs for many traditional and modern quilts.  This class is for all skill levels.

That Loopy Thang: Quick custom designs for samplers and other quilts that stump your imagination.

This class if for all skill levels, but geared for beginners to intermediate.  This class is for all skill levels.
