We will be open all Saturdays in December except we will be closed Christmas Day.

Free-Motion Quilting A Wholecloth Quilt Workshop



Come spend a full Friday and Saturday and leave with the knowledge of ways to complete a wholecloth quilt and take your own finish home!

We’ll start the day on Friday with a warm up of Quilting Calisthenics (you may see some new ones), then we’ll move to a refresher on the construction of a feather plume followed by doodling and/or stitching any key design elements of the quilt. Then we’ll end the day marking our quilt top, which will be done using ½ yard of fabric or two fat quarters plus extra for your binding, which you’ll complete on your own.

Saturday will be a blast as we begin stitching our very own Wholecloth quilt. There will be options for a simpler or more difficult version as well as suggestions for ways to make it your very own unique masterpiece.

A complete supply list will be provided in late August but you might want to wait to select your fabric until Friday when you learn a little more about the design!!!

Don’t miss this opportunity to expand your horizons and free motion quilting!!
