Twinkle-Liberated Star
Supply List
Sew Jean Impey said (about this class) - “I’m so excited to start
teaching Twinkle, my liberated star.  Based on my super-sized star quilt,
I decided that it was time to teach this as it is one of my favorites.  No
two blocks are alike… different sizes, colors, fabrics, dimensions!  This
makes it so personal and unique.
Create a Liberated Eight Point Star quilt using a variation of the nine
patch block.  Learn how to place different size blocks together into one
big, beautiful quilt.  In this class you will learn about improv sewing,
designing blocks with personality, while keeping your work squared and
accurate.”

Claudia Gomez-Elements (Of Quilt Design)
Claudia Gomez will be teaching Elements (of quilt design) at our
November meeting.  At our Saturday workshop she will be teaching a
free-motion quilted pillow.  This class will help you learn to do
free-motion quilting on your home sewing machine.  This is the first of
2 free-motion quilting classes we will offer this fiscal year. The next
is in April with Lenie Bosman.  It is recommended that you attend
both classes if possible.  The second class will feature a larger
9-patch sampler wall hanging quilt, so you will be learning additional
patterns and techniques at that class.
