Summer's Garden CQ

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! 


incredibly beautiful your work, love it. Happy day from Spain
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
Oh its exciting to teach beginners. Breathe and have fun.

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!
