Upcoming Classes Spring 2011

Interested in some modern quilt classes in the Calgary area? I've got two coming up at, of all places, Traditional Pastimes. It only sounds ironic in name, Bernadette is a great supporter of modern quilting and brings in some of the best new fabrics to hold court next to civil war reproductions.

Want to learn about Values Quilts and perfect your half-square triangle technique? This will be a one night class to get you set. We'll discuss ways to see and use value, make-up a set of blocks, then play with settings.

Thursday, April 14
6:30-9:30 pm

How about Improv? I've made a few adjustments to my Improv class. Not only will we be practicing different techniques for improv blocks, like a wonky log cabin and free piecing, we also tackle the challenges of breaking free from precision cutting and patterns.

Monday, May 2 and May 9
6:30-9:30 pm

To register for either class contact Traditional Pastimes.
