Spelling Bee Block of the Month


Have fun making this adorable quilt - Spelling Bee Sampler designed by Lori Holt of Bee in My Bonnet Designs. All the blocks are from Lori's newest book "Spelling Bee". The sampler is made up of 52 - 6" Alphabet blocks (both upper and lower case), 18 picture blocks and an assortment of punctuation blocks! During our 9 month program you will receive all the fabrics you'll need to complete your quilt top and binding. In month 9 you will receive the sashing, border and binding fabrics. The fabrics used in this block of the month program include a variety of Lori Holt's prints, 1930's reproduction prints, and contemporary prints in colors similar to those used in the original quilt and a white background.

Jungle Cruise Laser Cut Block of the Month and Kits

Jungle Cruise

Laser Cut Block of the Month and Kits


Jungle Cruise, design by Keith Phillips of Quilt Fusion, includes lions, rhinos and giraffes - oh my - in a beautiful applique project featuring Hoffman Bali Batiks. Each of the animal blocks are made using only one design yet because of Keith's fantastic use of color, the animals magically appear within the design. The project is set off by two leaf medallion blocks, adding a touch of nature to this innovative concept. All the applique pieces are precision laser cut with fusible attached. No need to trace, cut out, or turn the edges. Each month you will be sent a pattern and the fabrics you need to complete a portion of the quilt. The fabrics used in the quilt are all the same Hoffman Bali Batiks used in the original quilt pictured. The finished quilt will measure 70" x 70".

Wing Clipper 1 from Studio 180 Designs by Deb TuckerTucker University- 301 Wing Clipper 1 Tool

Tuesday November 14, 2017

10:30 am – 1:30 pm

Instructor - Kathy Anderson
Class price $20.00


Learn the simple secrets to creating crisp, clean flying geese units effectively and quickly. This method can be applied to any pattern that requires flying geese units. Since you often have to make lots of these units at a time, why not make them perfect every time? Expand the use of your Wing Clipper by learning how to make Pickets and Quickets too. Once you begin to recognize these units, you will be surprised how often they appear in patterns from your favorite designers or magazines.. Class is suitable for beginners and beyond.



Pay It Forward Charity Sew

Come spend a few hours with us on either Friday December 8th or Saturday December 9th, 2017 from 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. at Quilting by the Bay as we Pay It Forward and work on charity projects. We will be working on pet beds for the Animal Control Center and quilts for our new Trunk Quilt Program. A Trunk Quilt is a child size quilt that is made to go into the trunks of law enforcement vehicles. According to Haley who recently started this program in Panama City, the quilts are given by the officers to children they meet in the line of duty. When a child is involved in a call, the Trunk Quilt is meant to give them something to hold onto - something to find comfort in - and something they can keep that will, hopefully, bring a happy memory to what is otherwise a scary and unfamiliar situation. Haley has already coordinated with the Bay County Sheriff and Panama City Police Department and they are excited about these quilts.  Our Education Center will be open from 10 a.m. - 1 p.m. We ask that you bring your sewing machine and basic quilting supplies like rulers, cutting mat, neutral thread and a rotary cutter.

Class price $20.00


The Square Squared unit can be found within quilt blocks as well as in quilt sashings. Since this unit is often used to connect multiple units, it is important that the points are crisp and sharp. You will have perfect points when you use Deb Tucker’s Studio 180 Square Squared tool. A secondary benefit to using this tool is that there is minimal fabric waste. Expand the use of your Square Squared tool by learning how to make "Little Houses". Class is suitable for beginners and beyond.
