JUNE

Annie Smith
Fort Worth. Texas

Program
June 21 – If Our Quilts Could Talk, What Would They Say About Us?

Workshop
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:
