We are excited that Brigitte will be once again joining us to share her knowledge and unique style of quiltmaking. Last year Brigitte's classes were full and we are anticipating that once again every pink chair will be filled.
Brigitte is joining us a day earlier on this visit to take a one day class in fussy cutting your fabrics to make stand out hexagons. There are a few spaces left in this class so please contact the shop if you are wanting to learn all the tricks to creating gorgeous paper pieced shapes.
There are two delicious quilts on offer for the weekend class - the first is a quilt that I have loved for many years - Chintz Octagonal Medallion and the second is Web Tessellations, which will put all that new found fussy cutting knowledge to good use.
If you love the border on this quilt it is by Anna Maria Horner - I can tell you that it is being reprinted in two colourways due for release in September.
On Sunday Brigitte has kindly offered to also share her new quilt "Thank you Nantes" with class participants. This is a quilt as you go quilt that is perfect for that stash of floral feature fabrics that we love to collect.
Kay has kindly brought in the first of her blocks for this quilt along with her adaptation of Chintz Octagonal Medallion to share. Kay's quilt is visiting the shop for a short holiday - if you are thinking of taking Brigitte's class then please take some time to pop in and see this gorgeous quilt.
Brigitte will be joining us for classes from Friday 23 August to Sunday 25 August. If you would like to join her for either class please contact the shop to make sure that we hold a pink chair for you.
Be assured that you'll always have time for the things you put first - Liane Steele.
Hoping you can join us for a wonderful weekend of stitching.......lisa
