Pre-cut fabric packs are one of the hottest trends in quilt making today and quilters everywhere just can't resist these delectable textile treats! Their versatility is absolutely perfect for this fast-paced, fun-filled, workshop to turn all those enticing 2½” strips, 10” squares and charm packs into a fabulous quilt. Let Kimberly introduce you to the exciting and wonderful world she calls “modular piecing,” which is a system of simple, pieced units used to create new blocks, settings or complex-looking designs. Using squares, rectangles, triangles, diamonds and a myriad of basic ‘building block’ units, Kimberly will show you how to efficiently piece a wide range of blocks in modular sizes. She’ll teach you dozens of tips and tricks for using her EZ Flying Geese and EZ Jelly Roll Rulers along with traditional methods to their best advantage with no math, no wasted fabric, and best of all, no stress! Featuring fabulous techniques from her book, Precut Bonanza, Kimberly will share every trick in the book for precision piecing and lovely machine appliqué to create beautiful blocks and unlock your inner design diva. You’ll love her encouraging, upbeat, energetic (and humorous) teaching style, so join her for this retreat-style class and create a stunning sampler quilt and graduate as a precuts-pro!

Star Spangled Liberty and Equinox Programs both start in September.
Star Spangled Liberty designed by Pam Buda, is an Americana quilt bursting with patriotic pride! As a unique row quilt, the design features a vertical "quilter's flag" and six horizontal star rows. The center row features several flag/star blocks and patriotic parade pinwheels, along with the option of appliqué "America" and stars, or more pieced star/flag blocks and pinwheels. Our kits and block of the month program contain fabrics and instructions for both versions of the quilt. 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 approximately 74" x 78" and is perfect for a Twin bed or to use as a sofa/large lap quilt.

All of the applique is pre-fused and laser cut for fast and easy assembly with no extra cutting or waste. No need to trace, cut out, or turn the edges. Applique can be completed by hand or machine. Monthly kits will include the pattern and laser cut applique pieces to complete a portion of the quilt. You can also pre-order a complete Summer Baskets Laser Kit.
