YOU CAN MAKE THIS KALEIDOSCOPE QUILT

This is Carolyn’s beautiful sample for her Kaleidoscope quilt class. In this class you will learn how to choose fabrics that will make an awesome quilt like hers. She’ll also help you choose the different blocks for your quilt. Due to unforseen circumstances class dates have changed. The new dates are May 27 and June 17 from 12 noon to 3 p.m. If anyone can’t make those dates but could attend at another time, call the Attic Window Quilt Shop and get your name on the list as Carolyn says she will gladly teach another class in July and will have it on the next Newsletter class schedule.

Last night Chris showed us how to do her version of Paper Piecing. Most of us groan and moan when we hear PP. But she makes it fun and doable. She uses freezer paper, but it’s not like the other methods I’ve seen on various blogs. In this picture she shows us how to position the pieces.
PP has its advantages. You can make your piecing look perfect in little pieces like these. (Your editor would never attempt regular piecing on something so small.)
Now I’m off to work on the ATWQB block. Have to get the block finished that will go with Jane’s block and get it in the mail tomorrow to Paloma. I’ll post pictures soon.
To all my quilting friends who don't blog surf like I do, Julia’s Place has a cut arm chair caddy pattern. Check it out.
Until next time: Happy Quilting
