Little Quilts Finishing School

Finishing School is a great way to get your UFO's FINISHED.   You’ll learn techniques and tips for finishing those patchwork, appliqué and quilting projects. Whether you’re working on a new or unfinished block of the month, or being tested on how to finish a quilt you’ve started, it’s time to enroll! Students are encouraged to bring their work in progress and their machine and ‘graduate’ at the end of the quarter as a ‘well rounded’ patch worker. Free patterns will be given out monthly – included will be an organized plan in working with your stash – you’ll learn about color, setting and border options…plus lots of inspiration. The first class will be orientation as we make out our ‘lesson plan’ for this semester. Guaranteed to be a fun and rewarding class.  Check our website for class schedules.

Chris Ison used the book "Save the Scraps" by Gayle Bong to use up all the strips and small bits from her stash to make this fun quilt.

Chris also finished her "Georgia Hoedown" quilt (Silver Thimbles pattern).

Sue McBride and staff member Jackie Blackburn also had finished projects to share.
