The Reserve Garden Quilt 
is a celebration of nurturing, protecting and showing off cherished blooms whether your garden exists outdoors, in your sewing room, or both.
A rhythmic pattern of simple but interesting 12” patchwork blocks hold the background steady and ready for little explosions of applique flowers that swirl
around a center “reserve garden” of blooms. Clever and close color tones help to create a lovely canvas for more graphic solids and complimentary vignettes.
The repetition of the outer four panels, that swim around the center makes the quilt building process quite direct once you make your early fabric choices.
Reserve Garden Quilt PDF Pattern provided to class participants.
Use the Moonbeam Acrylic ($58) and Mylar ($22) Templates for extra cutting and applique help!


Class is full.  Waitlist is also full.

                                                               Collage Magic
Create gorgeous, magical collages with hand-painted fabrics, canvas, and machine stitching.  A stash of luscious fabrics (pre-painted by Libby) will be provided for your use.  Arrange pieces of fabric onto background canvas to create the design of your choice. You are free to create your own images since we will not be working directly from patterns, but Libby will help with your ideas and can help draw your designs.  The addition of free-motion stitching brings these collages to life.  If you prefer, simple designs can be stitched with regular straight stitching or hand sewing rather than by free-motion stitching.  The artworks will then be made into journal covers or finished as art for the wall.
We will provide more information on kits or additional costs when available.

Registration opens June 3 at 7:00AM via email to Margaret Gordon.  Online registration opens June 4th.

Members can register online starting June 4th.  Click here
Non members are welcome to sign up starting July 1st.
