the grass beneather their feet elephant quilt class

The Grass Beneath Their Feet Elephant Quilt

Janet Storton
Feb 4-5

From the African legend, "When two elephants fight, it is the grass beneath their feet that suffers." When I heard this after teaching women and young girls who had been held captive by a rebel army, I knew I had to make a quilt to honor them. A simple technique will be taught for making your own legend, story, or inspiration into a family heirloom. 

Patterns and ideas along with fabric will be available to share. Trading of fabrics is always encouraged! Any theme fabric can be used as your focus print.  Hint* Valori Wells' new elephant fabric would be perfect for those that want to work with my Legend.

trip around the worldTrip Around the World

Jean Wells Keenan
Feb 14 & 28

We found a new and easier way of doing trip around the world, and the results are wonderful! The quilt has four quadrants with 19 different fabrics in each quadrant. The strips are 2 1/2" cut so they are 2" finished. For an 80" x 80" quilt, five quadrants will be needed. It takes 3/8 yd of 19 fabrics, but some can be repeated. Feel free to use some fabric twice. Think about light and dark value changes as you do the choosing. It's your trip around the world!

A Friendly Reminder For A Healthy Classroom
If you have a cold, flu symptoms, or a lingering cough, please be considerate of fellow classmates and the instructor by staying home and taking care of yourself. Call the store in advance to let us know you are not feeling well, and we will do what we can to accommodate your illness.
Along the same lines, we have many students who are sensitive to perfumes and scented lotions; please avoid wearing such products to class.
