Spicy Spiral Table Runner

Spicy Spiral Table Runner

Myrna Draper took our Spicy Spiral Class and made this great table runner.  It is such a fun table runner to make, and very addicting too!  It requires only 8 fat quarters for the top.  Purchase the fat quarters or use your scraps.  Quilt it on your home machine too!  You can also use it as a wall hanging.

Contact us for class information.

Puppy Love

Puppy Love Quilt

Finally, we have the kits ready for this fun quilt!
(Sorry it took so long, but we wanted to proof the pattern for you.)
The darling puppy hexagons are all fussy-cut (hence the large amount of yardage for that piece)
and quarter- square triangles make this darling quilt a must have!
The kit includes the fabric for the quilt top, binding and pattern for $117.55.
Come in see the quilt made by Nancy Hutchinson using pattern and fabric by Quilting Treasures.

A Fast Remodel

We decided that our classroom was way too small for our needs (and for the Quilt Guild), so we set about to remodel it.  Quilts came down and tables, chairs and projects were moved out of the classroom.  The pattern and slat wall was moved and the work began.  On Saturday, March 1, family and friends joined us to clear off the shelves that would be moved.  Fat quarters, bolts of fabric and patterns were all moved in less than 1 hour.

Holding up the wall.
The sheet rock of the classroom wall had been removed previously.  Now it was time for Bob to saw it off the wall and pry it up from the floor.
(Good thing it wasn't permanently glued down.)                                                        

Brian Hermansen and his crew came in to move our shelves for us.     
Time to tip the wall to move to it's new location.

The new end of our classroom! Another 6 feet.
After a week of hard work from Linda & Bob and all the helping hands (Carolyn & Evan, Amber & Jerry Cox, Rick Fabrizio for the work on the carpet, Michelle Bennett, Randi & Nicholas Weight, Tyler & Janessa Peterson, Nancy & Jim Hutchinson, Lisa & Darren Weight, Brian Hermansen for the work with the cabinets and Angie Hagerman for taking pictures), we were finally able to clean and get everything back in order!
