Day 1: "City Scape"

Tuesday, May 21, 2019
9am to 4pm  |  $179.99 +GST
Location: Heritage Park: Gasoline Alley Classrooms

Diamonds create gentle watercolor movement for a modern lap quilt. It's the perfect design to show off machine quilting. And it's pre-cut friendly! 1 Jelly Roll and 1 yard of focus fabric. Change your view to the sea, woods or landscape just by changing your fabric selection. 

Day 2: "Trash to Treasure Pineapples" 

Wednesday, May 22, 2019
9am to 4pm 
|  $179.99 +GST
Location: Heritage Park: Railway Orientation Centre

Okay – isn’t it time to clear the clutter in your life? How about using up all those bits and pieces stuff in nooks, crannies and boxes? Let’s make an old fashion favourite pineapple quilt with a new and contemporary twist; sewn with perfection and totally random; and without paper piecing! This workshop turns trash to a treasured, one-of-a-kind pineapple quilt. 

Day 3: "It Takes Seven Sisters" 

Thursday, May 23, 2019
9am to 4pm  |  $179.99 +GST
Location: Heritage Park: Railway Orientation Centre

Nothing is more stunning than twenty brilliant stars made from diamonds. "Seven Sisters" block is what makes this quilt sparkle. The power in the sparkle is created by using 20 great fabrics from a narrow colour palette. Assembly is not as hard as you think. In this workshop you will learn the Butterfly Seam for perfect set-in piecing. Come ready to relax and chat; you are not expected to finish this in class since there is no speed sewing. This beauty takes time to complete.

Day 4: "Play Modern" 

Friday, May 24, 2019
9am to 4pm  |  $179.99 +GST
Location: Heritage Park: Railway Orientation Centre

It’s fast, it’s quick, it’s geometric and it’s free-style piecing with control. We will start with the thought of having fun and being in the moment. The technique is to use the Polygon2 Tool and Butterfly Seam to create a BOLD wall-hanging that shouts, “Modern” or “Contemporary”. This workshop is about you.
