Classes


Join us for the whole year! Here is your chance to brush up on you piecing skills, learn some different techniques, and have fun with fabrics. We will complete one block (or two) each month throughout the year. There is a total of 18 blocks to choose from. You decide which blocks to make from the 4 or 5 offered each quarter. Then in December 2019, you'll choose from a variety of setting options to finish your quilt. Individual sample blocks will be displayed each quarter in January, April, July, and October so that you can sign up for all four quarters or just the one's you choose. Classes will be 3 hours each month, and you will be required to purchase the pattern book.

Cost: $ 40.00
The One Block Wonder is a beautiful quilt. You will love this unusual method of designing and creating quilts. Instead of starting with a particular pattern or design and then trying to find fabric that will fit that pattern, this approach begins with the fabric: The fabric is the key element. Kaleidoscope blocks - each one unique - are produced by aligning the printed design on several layers of fabric and then cutting and sewing triangles together. Just as the mirrors in a kaleidoscope reflect and repeat an image, each triangle repeats color and pattern to create a new design for each block. We will also be delving into different techniques to make tumbling blocks which add a striking effect. Once all the blocks are made, you begin to design your quilt. Come join us at Top Shelf Quilts to make this one of a kind quilt. The results are limitless.

Cost: $ 48.00

BEGINNING BINDING
- Nov 02, 2019 01:00 pm

Let's learn how to do some bindings! In this class we will learn how to do a basic binding for beginning quilters. We will also be learning how to do a double sided binding where there will be a different color fabric for the front and a different color for the back. This is when you want the binding to blend in. You could use the same fabric as the last border on your top and then use the same fabric as the backing so it will blend on both sides. It is a fun way to finish your quilts. So, come join us at Top Shelf Quilts and we will get started with binding techniques.
