Everyone loves a mystery and we have another one for you this sewing season. No, we can’t post a picture of the quilt because – well, it’s a mystery. Imagine delicate raindrops falling into a vessel.
That’s all the hints you are getting. You have to put your quilting faith in our good hands and trust that you will end up with a fabulous quilt top that you and your family will admire for years to come.
Each month you will be given clues, in the form of a set of instructions, to be completed that month. By about the fourth month, the quilt will start to take shape and you will get a feel for the look of the finished project. This quilt will be available in both lap and queen size.
We are featuring 2 colours ways for your convenience, but you can choose you own colours if you wish. This project will last for 6 months, commencing the first Friday in October and ending in March 2020. No sewing will be done in this demo class. Below are the 2 suggested colour ways - traditional soft hues and florals or crisp cool tones by Laura Ashley.Fee: $25 plus materials and pattern Time: First Friday of the month, commencing in October October 4, November 1, and December 6, 9:00 – 10:00 a.m.
Mystical Journey is a BOM designed to be easy enough for the confident beginner, yet challenging enough to help develop skills and build confidence. The experienced quilter will find that this quilt helps to polish skills and presents enough of a challenge to keep them interested. Both quilters will finish the program with beautiful quilts. For our store sample we used the beautiful Stonehenge collection from Northcott – rich earthy tones that will warm any surroundings. We are also offering this program in a rich red and taupe collection ,“Cinnaberry” by Three Sisters for Moda . Either colour way will be stunning. Fee includes all materials for quilt top (binding, backing and batting not included). Meetings are once a month at the same time, and the quilt top will be completed by May 2020.
NOTE: This quilt top is being offered at a substantial savings to workshop participants (The pattern calls for 16 meters of fabric for the quilt top and the pattern retails for $60 – total retail value of about $369). In order to enjoy these savings and receive the monthly instructions there are a few parameters. Please ready carefully before registering.
At the beginning of the workshop you will pay the fee for the entire quilt top. You have 2 colour ways from which to choose. Each month you will receive pattern for the blocks of the month. At the next monthly meeting, all you have to do is show up with your completed blocks, stay for the 1 hour demonstration and you will receive the next block pattern, at no charge. If the blocks are not completed on time or you do not attend the session (for whatever reason, no exceptions), you must pay $10 to re-enter the program. Complete all the blocks on time and the quilt top will be yours- it’s that easy. There will be a small demonstration at the beginning of the each class. All fabrics are included to complete the quilt top ( backing, binding and batting not included.)
