Wedge Quilt Workshop with Christina Cameli

Make a basic wedge quilt up to 56” square finished. Christina will introduce wedge newbies to the basics of using wedge rulers and guide students through design, cutting, piecing and construction decisions as they make their first dynamic wedge quilt. There are lots of opportunities to customize your wedge quilt into something one of a kind, and this class will cover those. Requires a 9 or 10 degree wedge ruler. Students should expect to spend the first part of the class on design and second half on piecing.

Log Cabin Block Party with Susan Beal

Log Cabin Block Party with Susan Beal

Make a beautiful log cabin block in your favorite colors and finish it as a throw pillow with a sleek invisible zipper that elevates handmade patchwork to the next level. In this 4-hour class taught by Susan Beal, you’ll get the chance to try different piecing methods for building log cabin blocks, with lots of layout options, from traditional sunshine and shadow color play to striking, modern square-within-a-square designs. Once you choose your favorite design, you’ll piece, baste, and quilt it, then learn the technique to insert an invisible zipper so painlessly that you’ll transform every spare UFO block and square of fabric in your sewing room into stylish and reversible throw pillows!

Susan will bring more than a dozen different log cabin pillows, as well as some of her favorite quilts for inspiration, plus yardage, scraps, and strips of prints and solids from her stash that students can dip into to add color and depth to this simple geometric block. She’ll also bring a rainbow of perle cotton colors if you’d like to add hand-quilting, and quilt labels and tags for students to use! You can print out her free S+Q Coloring Sheets before class to audition different color combinations before you cut, or even buy, your fabrics.

This class is perfect for the beginning quilter, who knows how to use a sewing machine and is familiar with a ¼” seam allowance, but wants to try a few new techniques and play with color, value, and layout. All students should bring a sewing machine with invisible zipper foot, neutral thread for piecing, assorted fabrics (the equivalent of 2-3 FQs, including a favorite charm square if you’d like to use one as a center) and a 17” square of fabric for your pillow back. If you want to coordinate your back with some of your log cabin piecing, bring a FQ of one fabric and use what’s left from cutting (approximately 5” x 18”) for some of your strips or your center.

Supply list:

  • A copy of Sew + Quilt is included with your class

  • Sewing machine with manual

  • ¼ inch presser foot

  • invisible zipper foot

  • Walking foot recommended but not essential

  • Rotary cutter

  • quilt ruler (6 x 24 suggested)

  • cutting mat

  • Neutral thread plus complementary thread for machine quilting

  • Seam ripper

  • Scissors or snips

  • Safety pins for basting

  • Fabrics of your choice: suggested 2-3 FQs in contrast colors or hues; 5” charm square of a favorite fabric if you want to use it as an eye-catching center square; any strips or scraps you like as well. I suggest quilting cotton, but lightweight denim or linen can work well too.

  • 18” square batting

  • 18” square muslin

  • 17” square backing fabric

  • 14” invisible zipper

  • PDF coloring sheets

Bite Sized Gems with MJ Kinman

Aloha Sewing and Vacuum
7550 E Main St, Hillsboro, OR 97123

$95

In this fast-paced workshop, participants will create their own singularly beautiful work of faceted light using the same single-foundation piecing techniques I use to create my own “diamond quilts”.  Participants will choose from one of several pre-selected abstract gem designs based on their skill level. They will then learn how to chart the design onto freezer paper; code each piece for color, location, and adjacency; position template pieces onto fabric to achieve the desired light effects; and ultimately create their own unique study in faceted color. Participants will leave the class with a small top that can later be hand- or machine-quilted at home.

Supply List

  • 36 inch length of freezer paper (standard 18” width); parchment paper or tracing paper will not work with this technique

  • Colored pencils in the colors of the gem they want to create. However, don’t limit yourself! You may want to make a gemstone reflecting a wide variety of hues and values.

  • Erasable pencils

  • Ball point pen in blue or black

  • Eraser (preferably a gum eraser, rather than using the top of the pencil. These remove marks much better.)

  • 18” ruler 

  • Small ruler with a ¼” measurement

  • Bic Wite Out Correction Tape (available at any office supply store)

  • Domestic sewing machine and thread assortment (neutrals or colors that match your fabrics)

  • Scissors and rotary cutting tools (cutter and mat)

  • Iron and ironing pad (or board)

  • Fabric -- Assortment of skinny 8ths (half of a fat quarter) of cotton fabric in white, black, and up to four values of at least two different colors

1 hour for lunch, not included in cost of workshop
