In this class, we use special hand-dyed fabric called Hula Hoops. The radiant design of the cloth blends right in with the Hawaiian style, making the blocks even more exciting!

Kailua Cabins: Piece Hawaiian-Themed Log Cabin Blocks, #37503

Day: Wednesday, 5:30 – 8:30 p.m.
Location: Madison Room
Teacher: Stacy Michell
Level: All levels
Member: $48 Retail: $60

Unlike scrap Log Cabin quilts that feature a different fabric in every strip of a block and require hundreds of prints, this scrappy “Kailua Cabin” quilt depends on orderly repetition of fabrics within each block. The trick to the organized mess of the scrap quilt is made simple by fabric selection in groups of four fat quarters. Additionally, the correct fabric arrangement for cutting simplifies the whole process again. The four blocks from the class are the perfect start for a larger quilt and can also be finished as a small wallhanging or four pillows. Join Stacy for a fun evening and create updated Log Cabin blocks using tropical prints and bright colors!

Come relax and play for a few hours! Many quilters are intimidated by creative threadwork, but you can learn create beautiful thread art in a relaxed and fun environment. Threadwork enhances your quilt in a way that no other technique can. It can stand alone or be the final touch to quilts, clothing, home decorating, and greeting cards. In this class you will learn, practice, and enhance your free-motion quilting skills. First, students will warm up by free-motion quilting a number of very easy patterns that can be used for background quilting. You will also learn how to sign your name on your quilt by using the sewing machine as a writing tool. You will then make one or more simple drawings on a muslin sandwich, then proceed to draw the simple picture with your sewing machine using thread. This technique requires minimum effort and practice; you can execute it even if you do not feel comfortable with free-motion quilting. In fact, you will be comfortable with thread drawing by the end of the session. You will review and practice free-motion and discuss threads used in the process.

Location: Eisenhower Room
Teacher: Grace Errea
Level: All levels
Member: $16 Retail: $20

 


Grace’s trademark is VALUE. In this lecture she will focus on value and its importance in textile work, along with various color harmonies, color theory, and psychology of color. The expressive aspects of color and value in nature and in art/quilts will be discussed. At completion of the lecture, attendees will see value and color in a new way and will start releasing the artist within. Learn how to use value to create a focal point, to set the mood in a piece, to create 3-dimensionality or to give the perception of perspective in a landscape, and how to showoff those traditional blocks so the design shines. This is a crowd-pleasing lecture, entertaining and fun, full of funny real anecdotes and actual quilts for show and tell. Supplies are not required for a lecture, although you may want to bring a pen and paper to take notes. An optional kit is available.

With this system you never have to cut or sew a triangle unit. That’s because the system does it for you; the seam allowance is built into the ruler producing great speed and accuracy. The resulting blocks go together with great ease and lie very flat. Supplies are not required for a lecture, although you may want to bring a pen and paper to take notes.
