One Block Wonder

Dates:  Saturday April 28
Times: 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
 Price:  $20.00, must purchase book
Teacher:  Cindy S.

This is a great class for an advanced beginner quilter who might be hesitant about triangles. It's a great class for more advanced quilters interested in a new technique.
If you have attended a previous One Block Wonder class, this would also be a wonderful opportunity for a refresher and for taking your current OBW project to the next stage.
Participants of this class can expect to learn to cut repeats, layer and pin those together with precision, cut strips and triangles from the strips, and begin the basics of 3 + 3 construction of hexagons which allows for construction of the quilt with no Y seams at all.  Most quilters will get as far as playing with a first set of hexies on a temporary design wall.
Note: there is an optional follow-up class being offered on another date for design-to-full-construction, creation of cubes, and the beauty of fabric panels in OBW.

Sew Together Bag

Date:  Saturday April 21
Time:  10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Price :  $20.00, must purchase pattern
Teacher:  Chris Foreman

This bag is not that hard to make but the pattern is a little hard to read.  So take advantage of Chris's knowledge and make this nifty bag with 3 zippered pouches.

Marbella Block of the Month

Date:  Tuesday June 12, July 10 & August 14
Time:  1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Price:  $10.00 per class
Instructor:  Mary Clark

This is an easy quilt to make with just a little applique that Mary will teach as Invisible Machine Applique.  This Block of the Month was designed for 10 months, but Mary will give you a good head start so you can complete it at home or during our Open Sews.

Saturday, May 19, 10-3     Cubes and Design: One Block Wonders

Instructor: Cindy Bosley

List of Supplies for Cubes and Design: One Block Wonders Hexagons Class

This class is a great follow-up

class for those who attended the basics of the hexagonal One Block Wonders class AND for those who have accomplished the technique on their own but are interested in related facets of the hexagonal One Block Wonder, such as OBW’s using printed panels and OBW’s using cubes. 

A very brief refresher on basic construction of OBW hexies will be offered, but the primary focus will be on construction of three basic cube styles, and then we’ll also be covering design considerations for the body of an OBW, generally, and also for cubes and incorporation of full fabric panels into OBW’s.

Additionally, if you’re not especially interested in cubes or aren’t ready to learn about panels in OBW’s BUT you like the class environment to nudge yourself to complete design and construction of your half-sewn hexies, this class will cover useful design ideas and recommendations hinted at in the first class.

Saturday, August 4, 10-3, 8-Sided One Block Wonders: Basics, Construction, and Design
(no previous OBW experience needed)

Instructor: Cindy Bosley

List of Supplies for Octagonal One Block Wonders Basics and Construction Class

This class is good for advanced beginning quilters and up. If you have made a basic “snowball” quilt block, you can make this quilt block. You do not need to have made any One Block Wonders quilts before trying an octagonal OBW.  Participants can expect to learn to cut, layer, pin, and slice the elements for octagonal OBW blocks as featured in Maxine Rosethal’s first OBW book. Some students may get enough blocks constructed to begin playing with design on a design wall.
