Who’s Afraid of ‘Y’ Seams?
Blocks and Borders and Sashing Oh My! Before the
age of rotary cutters, quilters designed some of the
most beautiful blocks around and a lot of them
contained ‘Y’ seams. With the development of rotary
cutting methods and the desire to make all thing
simple, ‘Y’ seams went the way of the dinosaur. This
class will help take the fear out of constructing blocks
that our fore-quilters had no problems with. Blocks
like the Baton Rouge block and other ‘Y’ seamed
blocks will start appearing in our quilts again after you
learn how easy ‘Y’ seams really are.

Whacky & Stacky With a Twist
This class takes the student through the
‘Stack-n-Whack’ technique designed by Bethany
Reynolds, only with the addition of a secondary
focus fabric placed to change the look of the basic
pinwheel block to create an original design
Slice and Slash Curves
This class shows the student an
alternative method to curved piecing
without sewing curved seams. Ten
18-inch squares of fabric are used to
create the nine block, curved pieced top,
complete with sashing and border.
This class takes the Stack and Whack
method developed by Bethany Reynolds
and by using four repeats of a design and
paper piecing, creates an original design
with secondary patterns.
Diamonds are Forever
Use your imagination and those beautiful fabrics in your
stash that you can't bring yourself to cut up and create
your own center medallion and build the diamonds to
set around it. By using a variety of fabrics in any theme
you select, you will have a quilt like no other to throw
on your bed or hang on your wall. You can have
diamonds because "Diamonds are Forever:".
