LEARN TO USE THE SQUEDGE TOOL

NEW CLASSES ANNOUNCED!  Have you ever used a Squedge tool?  I had never heard of it until Vickie S. showed me this stunning table runner.  She said there are two different times you can take a class from her and learn how to use this tool while making a table runner or table topper. (Read below for dates and times)
This is a close-up of the block.

Above are two different table toppers.  It looks complicated, but I know that with Vickie teaching the class you will have no trouble making something stunning.  She is an excellent teacher.
Doesn’t this make you want to take Vickie’s One Block Wonder class?  When I saw this darling table runner I knew this class is a must.  I wasn’t up to making a full size quilt, but this table runner is the perfect size for this fun project.  I’m also thinking that it will make wonderful gifts during the holidays.  Look for Vickie’s class on the September calendar.
Vickie also showed us this beautiful wonky quilt.  She hadn’t intended to teach a class on this one, but I think we have her convinced to do so.  It probably won’t be until the fall, which will give me enough time to collect all those batiks and black and white fabrics. 
This is a closeup of one of the blocks.  When Diana and I were trying to convince Vickie to have a class, Vickie said it would be fun to trade squares of fabric with others in the group.  Sounds like fun to me!  
This is another quilt that Vickie showed us.  Isn’t it beautiful!  Thank you Vickie for sharing with us!

ANOTHER NOTE:  
Did you go check out the Row By Row Shop Hop website?  This is a must for anyone traveling this summer.  You won’t want to miss it.
Kitchen Table Quilting has a tutorial for a Kissing Diamonds quilt. 

Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!
