QUILTER OF THE MONTH
Meet Carrie Borchardt! She is an amazing quilter who is known for thinking outside the box. Carrie has been quilting over 20 years and learned from her maternal grandmother, her mother, aunt and the internet. She comes from a family of crafters. She loves the piecing process. Carrie prefers choosing from a fabric line so all fabrics coordinate. She then lets the fabric tell her what it needs to become. Her favorite book is Word Play Quilts by Tonya Ricucci and her favorite notions are The Cutting Gizmo by Gypsy Quilter and the Bloc-Loc ruler to trim half square triangles. She loves Kaffe Fassett and Lori Holt. The fun thing about Carrie is the wide variety of styles that she uses in her quilts. They are always fun and make you smile. Congratulations to Carrie Borchardt, our Quilter of the Month!

GEESE IN MOTION

Flying Geese…. love them or hate them or do they terrify you? If you have a problem being consistent while making your flying geese, this class is for you. We will be making a table runner featuring 2”x4” flying geese. We will use scrap fabrics to make the geese according to the pattern directions and then use scraps to make the same units with the Ultimate Flying Geese Ruler. It will be a chance to test drive the ruler before you purchase one or if you have the ruler in your stash and have been afraid to use it, this is your class. By the time you leave you will be ready to go home and tackle the geese for your runner. It’s a win for everyone. Pattern purchase is required and kits will be available.
