Workshop for July 18 is happening . July meetings are canceled.
Workshop: “20 FAT QUARTERS OF VALOR”
Workshop Description: Learn a super-quick way to create wonky log-cabin style blocks for a beautiful quilt! We will stack 20 patriotic Fat Quarter cuts of fabric plus a freezer paper pattern. Then we cut, shuffle and start sewing our large blocks together. Please bring as many fat quarters as you can in colors red, white, blue, army green, and tan. We will share until everyone has a pleasing arrangement. This quilt sews up very quick! Even though these quilts will all be sent to Quilts of Valor, every participant will go home with another 2 copies of the pattern, instructions, and tools to keep organized while sewing. This is one pattern that you’ll want to make over and over again.
Instructor information: Virginia Sheridan focuses on making traditional quilts, and teaching at It Seams To Be Sew in Sugar Land. She designed this quilt and has made more than she can count!

Accordian Sewn HSTs – “The Carpenter’s Apprentice”
If you haven’t seen Beth Helfter’s videos on Youtube using her cool method of making multiple Half Square Triangles, please take a look!
(Start with Part 1 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dc3ClOPu4_w, and then also watch Parts 2 and 3.)
It's incredibly fun and addicting, but it doesn't just make cool little accordions; once you cut them apart, your quilts are halfway done! This pattern takes the Accordion Sewn HST technique and ups the ante just a bit to show how it can be used to sew all the HSTs needed for an entire quilt, keeping it all scrappy and with no waste!
Supply list will be made available at a later date. Pattern purchase required ($12). Pattern is available as a download, or paper pattern. Free shipping code will be made available 2 weeks prior to the event if you want a paper copy of the pattern plus any tools, etc. Beth does use a special trimming tool, however it is not required. https://evapaigequilts.com/collections/all-products/products/the-carpenters-apprentice-sewalong-learn-to-use-my-accordion-sewn-hsts-method
