Small Stack’n’Whack Wall Hanging
Teacher- Gail Schwier

Saturday Oct 14, 930-330

I LOVE Stack ‘n Whack!  This is your opportunity to discover what this technique is all about and why it remains so popular.  This project is one  that is easily managed and quickly finished.  Find out how cutting simple squares, and then sub-cutting them into 4 triangles, will give you totally different kaleidoscope –type blocks.  It is always amazing to see the different results achieved by every participant in the class.  Join us and have a fun day. Class $40. See supply list for extra requirements.

Island Chain
Teacher- Gail Schwier

Thursday Oct 19, 930-130, Oct 26 and Nov 9, 930-1230

What a delight this jelly roll quilt is to make!  It may look intimidating, but the secret is to keep your fabrics separate and organized while stitching and positioning the blocks.  I have several ways to easily help you keep order over your fabric strips—and we’ll use them all!  Using a variety of medium to dark batiks keeps the design from getting lost.  Also, choosing and placing fabrics that contrast well with their neighbours, allows the “links” to appear as if they were woven together.  This is a quilt that will impress friends and family for years.
Class $65. See supply list for extra requirements.


Kitchen Sink
Teacher- Gail Schwier

Monday Oct 23, 930-4

What a wonderful way to use a new jelly roll with strong light and dark strips or stash scraps.  Anything goes, hence the title everything but the “Kitchen Sink”.  The most important fact to remember is to have a strong contrast between the light and dark fabrics.  As challenging as it may appear, the quilt is easily completed with blocks on point.  Class $45. See supply list for extra requirements.


Humble Origins
Teacher- Sylvia Benvie
Monday Oct 30, 930-4 and Nov 20, 930-1230

The block in this Tula Pink design is a different take on an old standard. Called the interrupted log cabin, it is a block within a block. In true Tula style, it is injected with pops of bright colour with simple and straightforward piecing. Instructions are well laid out with blocks set on point. You'll be amazed at the final outcome! Class $62. See supply list for extra requirements.
