“Summer Solstice” happens mid-June, however we are turning this pattern into a winter wonderland 60″ square SWIRL Winter Wonderland quilt.
You will be working on 4 different paper piecing units – a couple NY beauty blocks, a lone star with diamonds and a paper pieced border. There will be some gentle curves to piece, that are really very agreeable – no stress piecing – and the entire quilt is designed with no “Y” seams!
Summer Solstice (Blueberry Lemon Swirl) fabric kits are be available for purchase here (while supplies last). The Solstice Swirl Companion Instructions come with the kit full of pre-cut strips; so with just a little more prepping the paper from your pattern and cutting your fabric strips with template layouts, you will be able to jump right in and start sewing when class begins! You can purchase your pattern here Summer Solstice Pattern (new) or just the replacement papers here Summer Solstice Replacement papers (new) while supplies last! or through Quiltworx.com.
Have your own swirl colorway in mind? No problem! You will be able to download the Swirl Companion Instructions with yardage and cutting information for free when signing up for class. You can color your quilt at Quiltster.com by signing up for a membership. (Be aware that the yardage for a swirl quilt will be different than is figured in Quiltster.) Make sure you have the pattern papers and your fabric prepared, cut and bagged before class begins, so we can all start piecing together.
If you want to skip class and venture through this project on your own, “Swirl Companion Instructions” will be available as a download for a $20 fee! These instructions give you yardage information, stacking/piecing information and a couple of video tutorial links on how to turn your Summer Solstice pattern into a modern swirl quilt.
Due to COVID19 restrictions and the winter flu season, we are offering this class via ZOOM. You do not need to purchase any zoom app or product in order to participate in a zoom meeting. Enjoy quilting in your pajamas with friends, never having to leave your house – or dragging your machine and all the stuff that goes with it – to join us in class! Once you have purchased a seat, you will receive an email with a link and password to join our secure meeting. We have great camera viewing points, so you can see our “Quilting Hands” up close and personal, along with a long view of Donna in the studio with her design board. Every class participant will receive a link to the class video when class is over – so you can follow along to finish your quilt at your own pace.
We provide a safe, comfortable and judgement free experience in which to relax and enjoy your quilting day. So purchase your seat in class before they sell out!
