November 26, 2019 – Maryhurst Bag Cutting Day

The cut bags filled both the […]

November 21, 2019 – Clothesline Bowls

Thank to Terrie for presenting this wonderful class!  Her creations are beautiful! First we wrapped the fabric strips around the clothesline.  Sometimes it became a funny and tangly mess.

Through a trunk show and slide presentation, guest speaker Jane Adolf shared how to provide a quilt back that will be easy for your long-armer to load and stitch to your quilt top.  She addressed the many decisions a quilter faces when choosing a backing, such as the front and back “talking” to each other, […]

October 17, 2019 – Steering Wheel Cover

Have you ever found yourself with a steering wheel that was too hot or too cold from the weather?  Susan has the answer! These steering wheel covers were so easy to make with her meticulous instructions! She first taught us how to make a bias binding that would lay flat when sewn to a circle. […]
