misdirection quilt class tula pink


Sue McMahan
Mar 7

You have all the right moves in this Tula Pink design! With a fabulous sense of color position, this quilt provides a playful romp among fabric. Misdirection can be accomplished so easily with the Quilt In A Day 4"x8" Flying Geese ruler. With very little fabric waste and easily followed directions, four geese units will be created at a time, using just four lines of stitching! This ruler will soon be an internal part of of your tool box since you can also make 2"x4" geese with the same ruler. Misdirection can be sized for a crib to a king by adding more geese.

Sometimes We Cancel a Class….
On occasion we will cancel a class due to insufficient enrollment. We make that decision ten (10) days before the scheduled class. We recommend that you call to confirm that the class has met its minimum enrollment and will go on as scheduled. The safest bet is to do your class purchases within ten (10) days of the class date.

Winter Weather Alert!
Weather can be unpredictable here in Central Oregon. When winter weather affects driving conditions, our priority is safety! Please note that if the Sisters School District is closed due to weather conditions, we will also cancel class that day. We will reschedule the class for another day, based on classroom and instructor availability.

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.
Thank you!
