3004C – Lone Starburst $100

Kimberly Einmo

www.kimberlyeinmo.com

Day: Wednesday 6 Hrs: 8:30 AM – 3:30 PM

 

Skill Level: Intermediate

 

Kimberly's most popular class; this one sells out wherever she teaches it! All it takes are 40 – 2½” strips from a purchased precut bundle or strips cut from your own stash, plus one background fabric and the diamond design possibilities are practically endless! Kimberly will teach you how to strip-piece and cut diamond building blocks from strips using either her EZ Jelly Roll Ruler or new Precision Precuts Ruler with no “Y” or set-in seams. You’ll design your own unique Lone Starburst variation quilt! The first part of the class focuses on accurate and efficient cutting and piecing of the diamond units and the latter part of the class will focus on design elements and the almost limitless possibilities for designing your own layout using your diamond units. The real magic comes from the fact that the quilt is assembled with straight-set blocks, not diamond wedges or blocks on point. This is an eye-opening class for anyone who wants to create a one-of-a-kind quilt with a Lonestar twist!

Michele Crawford

Day: Wednesday Hrs: 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM

 

Skill Level: Beginner - Intermediate

 

Slow down, relax, and enjoy sewing with English Paper Piecing (EPP)! A SUPER portable project where you can sew on this project anywhere! There are MANY different shapes that are used in creating designs with fabric and thread in EPP, and hexagons are all the rage! Michele will teach you a quick and easy way to create EPP 2” wide hexagons using scraps! A short power point program on what you can make and do with hexagons will be presented for inspiration.

In Project 1, learn the basic skill in how to hand sew the 19 finished hexies together into 2 connecting rows around a center hexie; and appliqué it to a base fabric.

 In Project 2, Michele will teach you a “twist” on a hexie, and how to make a diamond; and after the design is

sewn together, it can be appliquéd to a base fabric.

 In Project 3, learn how to sew hexagons and diamonds together to make a star.

 * Please note that this is a FUN, stress free technique class so the projects will not be finished in class.
