June 21 – If Our Quilts Could Talk, What Would They Say About Us?
June 22 – Stashbusters!
StashBusters! explores the ways different quilts can be made from project left-overs and new fabrics from your stash. This is a great workshop for philanthropy quilts, to gift a quilt, or to decorate a room with quilts that look beautiful together. Using leftover fabrics from a previously completed quilt (and adding some fresh, new fabrics, of course!) students learn to progress to a new project choosing from one of eight simple quilt patterns from my trunk show. The quilts shown on this page were made in progressive order, each using the leftover fabrics from the previous. The leftover strips from the Courthouse Steps are used to make the Chinese Coins quilt. The leftovers from the Chinese Coins are cut into squares and used for the Nine Patch blocks. With the two leftover quilts, I add new background and backing fabrics. Annie helps students add fresh fabrics from the quilt shop to make each of their StashBusters! Quilts totally unique. Annie demonstrates all of the construction techniques that you need to make your quilt. Annie has also produced a video of the possibilities for this workshop. You can find the video at https://youtu.be/Q7hl9IBSfGQ. Pattern fee: $8 Patterns available:

September 21- Double Vision
NO CURVED PIECING IN THIS QUILT — it’s an illusion!
Double Vision by Kim Buchmann
October 18 – The History and Mystery of Baltimore Quilts
The history of Baltimore Album quilts is a fascinating journey into an America headed for
the Civil War. Discover how the industrial revolution, the struggle over slavery and the social and moral climate of the time contributed to this beautiful art form. Through stories, Jaimie will explore how the demise of Baltimore Album quilts leads us into the hearts and minds of the women who made them, and find out how a pregnancy, a Christmas gift and a quilt class gone horribly wrong helps to explain the mystery behind why these quilts disappeared almost overnight. It’s a funny, provocative and insightful look into some of America’s most beautiful treasures.
October 19 – Layered Landscapes
Learn how to create a stunning landscape quilt in this full day workshop. Jaimie will touch on the principles of successful design in addition to teaching several machine-based construction techniques necessary to complete your project.
