STASH BUSTER SERIES - Christmas in July



Friday, July 13, 2018     10:30 - 4:30     $57

What's in your stash? Mine is way too big and it's time to use it up! Generally, the second Friday of the month, one of our staff members will teach (or lead) a stash-busting class. Some quilts will feature strips, squares, triangles, curves, improv techniques, focus fabric or panels, etc. Some quilts will look more traditional, some will look more modern. So join us in using what you have to create something wonderful.

July's Stash Buster will be Christmas in July: a chance to raid your stash and make a great scrap-busting holiday (or fall) themed table topper, wall or lap quilt! Based on the scrappy tree block from Amy Smart's blog, Diary of a Quilter. This is a great class to take with a friend to share fabric and scrappy blocks.


Pull from your stash a variety of shades and scale of prints to keep it scrappy. Red, green, blue, gold, festive pinks and turquoise to make it modern, and browns for the tree trunks. Add dots, stripes, holiday themed or not. The more the merrier. Not in a holiday mood? Bring Autumnal shades of rusts & golds to make it a great welcome to fall quilt instead. Finished block size is 7" x 9"  Tje ;aupit amd fomosjed size of the quilt is up to you (and your stash).
