Freedom Bound designed by Denice Lipscomb, features the Freedom Bound fabric collection designed by Nancy Gere. The inspiration for this quilt comes from the story of Hannah Cummings Cotton, a slave in Mississippi and her journey to Ohio in 1859, leaving the chains of slavery behind. This awe inspiring Block of the Month program is dedicated to her legacy. Our block of the month program includes the patterns plus all the original fabrics for the quilt top and binding. Your finished quilt will measure 97" x 97".
William and May Sampler quilt designed by Michele Hill was inspired by English textile designer William Morris' graceful designs. Our block of the month kits will include all original fabrics from the William and May collection designed by Gray Sky Studio for In the Beginning Fabrics for your quilt top and binding. Each month you will receive fabrics and directions to make a portion of the quilt. You will be provided adequate fabric to complete the applique in the technique of your choice.
Your finished William and May Sampler Quilt will measure approximately 64" x 76".
Road Trip is a 10 Month Block of the Month program. This adorable quilt features bears, moose and raccoons having a blast on their Road Trip!

Monthly kits will include fabrics, laser cut applique pieces, and pattern to complete a portion of the quilt. McKenna Ryan's Road Trip quilt features McKenna's debut fabric line called "Enchanted Pines" from Robert Kaufman Fabrics just like the original.

Come spend the day with us on Saturday April 30th at Quilting by the Bay as we Pay It Forward and work on quilts to support the Warrior Beach Retreat. Our Education Center will be open from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. Each attendee will be given a free pattern and we will provide a light lunch. QBTB will be donating all the fabrics. We ask that you bring your sewing machine and basic quilting supplies like rulers, neutral thread, and a rotary cutter.
Needle Case & Wool Pincushion LGO Class
You'll always have the right needle close at hand when you store them in these convenient cases that provide easy-to-locate, compact storage areas for needles of all types and sizes. Laminate the handy chart (included in the pattern) for a quick reference guide to different types and sizes of needles, both hand and machine.
Open Wide LGO Class
These cute bags are not only stylish, but they are functional, too! You'll love their design which allows them to open wide for easy access to all their contents. Use them for to carry cosmetics or toys, to store makeup in your gym locker, or to organize lists and purchases while running around town. Now that you've mastered our "normal" style of zipper installation, it's time to learn something new! Open Wide! features a brand-new style of zipper installation as well as a different method of binding the edges of the zipper. This method not only finishes off the raw edges but also forms a great little grab handle.
We appreciate your business,
Sandy and the staff at Quilting by the Bay
