Contemporary Curved Quilts was inspired by two sisters who developed a curved ruler and a variety of quilts with simplicity in mind.  Many of the patterns are traditional designs with a contemporary twist.  The quilts are a fun and simple method of sewing curves with no templates or pinning. 

In this class you may make any of the Sew Kind of Wonderful patterns you want.  The technique will be basically the same for all with a few simple variations.  I will help you with whatever pattern you choose.  This is one ruler with many possibilities. 

Please select your pattern at least two weeks prior to class so I have time to review it.


T-Shirt Quilt

Have you been wondering what to do with all those T-Shirts your child can’t part with? Making them a memory quilt of their favorite tee’s is a great gift for those going off to college. This is just one of many layouts you may use to make a t-shirt quilt.

This may be a one day, two day or three day class. It depends on how much help you need. I would suggest 3 – 4 hours each day to complete the quilt.

Price will depend on how many days you sign up for. 1 day (3 hours) - $30, 2 days - $50, Third day would involve putting on the borders. See the borders and binding class.

Log Cabin

In this class I will give you a thorough lesson on how to put your borders on perfectly. We will cover measuring accurately and mitering the corners as an option. I would encourage you to bring a quilt that is ready for the borders and actually put them on in class.

If you have a quilt that is ready to bind, bring it to class to do the binding. You will put your binding on and learn how to make it perfect. A binding that is less than perfect will actually keep your quilt from winning a ribbon in competition. If you have any desire to compete in local contests, make the binding perfect. If you do not have a quilt ready to bind, I have sample swatches for you to practice on.

I have The Binding Tool for sale if you are interested ($10.00). It is a great tool to use to join the ends together perfect every time.

Add on with borders and bindings is putting in a cording before the binding. It adds a beautiful finishing touch to every quilt. ($10.00, includes cording)

If you would like to make the sample above that includes mitering borders, cording, and bindings let me know and I’ll put a kit together for you or you may bring your own fabric.

Kit fee: $20.00
