Summer's Garden CQ

2015.04.03SummerGarden01
This summer, I'll be teaching a Crazy Quilting 101 class at The Loopy Ewe in Fort Collins, CO!  This is the sample block that is going to be displayed in the shop!  It's an 8 inch block with enough seams to try out a few of the basic embroidered seams and to play  bit with some simple motifs. 

To start with, we are going to try a 3 week class series with 2 hours a class and homework to complete in between!  I'm so excited to be starting this new adventure!

I'm hoping that this block isn't too ambitious for a six hour class!  We'll learn how to piece a block during the first class and apply the lace trim.  The second class, we'll learn how to do a few basic embroidery seam stitches.  The last class, we'll finish whatever embroidery seams we didn't finish in week 2 and learn about adding beads, buttons and some little motifs.   

Can't wait to get started!   The first class is June 13, 20 and 27th from 10:00 to noon.  The second class will be July 23, 30 and August 6 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.  If you are in the area and would like to join in, watch the Loopy Ewe website for class details and registration, which will be coming soon!

Oh how I would love to be there to take your class.

I want to learn how to piece a block together to get started. Hand stitching it though, as I don't like using a sewing machine. :-) I don't even know if I have a working one either, or if I'd even remember how to use one. I always became tense sewing with a machine.

The cq block is happy and so spring looking.

Enjoy teaching ~ FlowerLady

so wish I was anywhere nearby, but a drive from southern NH to Fort Collins might be a bit much! However, I did let my niece-in-law know - she actually lives in Colorado!
