Black, White and Red All Around

Saturday was Class #2 for Black, White and Red All Around. Class #3 will cover borders and how to get a quilt top ready for quilting. Class #4 will cover machine quilting and binding.

Here is a picture of a smaller 36 x 36 inch version of Kathie Holland's design that I made out of red, white and blue fabrics. Students have a choice to make this quilt in either size and any 3 colors of their choice.

Designed by Kathie Holland
Here again is a pic of the 54 x 54 inch quilt I made of Kathie's star using 6 inch squares from a black and white swap with members of AAQMB ~ on Alex Anderson's site almost 10 years ago! Can you believe it's been that long ago... so much as changed since then.

Only for the duration of the class, this quilt is hanging in the classroom at Cathy's Sew and Vac in Chico, CA

One year ago Cathy's Sew and Vac moved to a different location here in Chico. Now in a bigger building they added fabric, notions, patterns, embroidery and ***lots of quilting tools*** to their inventory of sewing machines. Quilt Making 101 is but one of a variety of classes being offered in their new classroom. There are embroidery classes, a Handi Quilter class, even a hat making class offered by other instructors. I am starting a second series of Quilt Making 101 classes on July 10 

Color Me Happy is a new BOM coming up, sometime after the summer. I am in the process of making up the quilt sample to present in the classroom... soon!
