Summer Classes

Sometimes my quilty brain is going in too many different directions.  I was so busy thinking about our get together today with the Ann Arbor Modern Quilt Guild to learn how to do Cathedral Windows that I totally forgot to put this post up this morning.  I’ll share my Cathedral Windows project when I get a little more done.

You may remember a couple of sneak peeks I showed you here and here in February.  Well, yesterday was the day the Greater Ann Arbor Quilt Guild unveiled the class offerings for Quilting Unlimited 2011.  (Yes, I belong to three guilds – the other one is the Brighton Modern Quilters).

So, for any of you who live in the area, here is what I’ll be teaching.  All day Friday, July 29 will be “Holiday Pillow Trio”.  We’ll be making these 16″ pillows (top picture) and learning about envelope and zipper closures.  All day Saturday, July 30 I’ll be teaching Beginning Quilting (middle picture).  The project we will be working on is this sudoku inspired nine-patch.  Sunday afternoon, July 31, we’ll be working with free form bias on my Celebration Table Runner (bottom picture). 

You can get more information about Quilting Unlimited from the website.  There are over 50 classes being offered during the three day event, so browse around the website and see what you can find!

Members of the Greater Ann Arbor Quilt Guild have priority to sign up for classes until April 16 when registration opens to the general public.  My understanding is that there is a $20 registration fee for non-guild members.  Guild membership itself is only $35 a year so, if you are interested in attending any other guild lectures or workshops during the rest of the year, it might be worth it to go ahead and join.  Check here for info on upcoming events.

I think this post takes the prize for the most links I have ever included 🙂

    Ah Debbie – love the pillows shown like this and that Celebration table runner is lovely – pity the classes are across the pond – looks like they could be fun.
