*Lunch will be a catered Soup/Sandwich/Dessert. You will have a choice of 2 soups and a choice of 2 sandwiches, plus a dessert.
Class #1–Charmed Squared *NOTE: Pattern is an additional $12 cost.
This quilt can easily be completed in a weekend! All you need are two charm packs and 3&3/4 yards of coordinating yardage for the background.
The instructions include directions to make half square triangles from squares, so you can turn the charm packs into half square triangles in no times at all.
You may use 2 of the same charm packs, 2 different packs from your favorite designer, or go for the scrappy look and use any five-inch squares.
Class #2–Stripping in Paradise *NOTE: Pattern is an additional $12 cost.
This pattern can easily go together in a weekend. Finished 66” square, it requires a jelly roll and some background yardage.
It used strip piecing with minimal seams to match. You can use any jelly roll, but your background fabric needs to contrast from your jelly roll.
You can view these patterns on her website:
Of course, If you are not interested in one or both of these classes, you may simply work on your own projects and still enjoy the company of your fellow retreaters! If you chose to work on your own, the cost for the day remains the same.
We hope you will join us for this fun, 2-day event!
