Joseph's Coat

Pat Yamin's Joseph's Coat quilt
If you have been looking for your next piecing challenge and having fun using your scraps, then join Pat in this creative workshop. Piecing can be done by hand or by machine. The convex and concave curves are easy to sew. A block is formed using just two pattern pieces which are sewn to create six units, making up the hexagon. Using your scraps of light, medium and dark fabrics or as few as 3 colors of fabric, you will create an interlocking pattern. This traditional pattern is a true classic that you will want to add to your quilt collection. Pat will be teaching tips and techniques so your intersections will meet and the blocks will all lay flat.
Saturday, March 21 (9:00 AM - noon) NOTE THE START TIME
Cost: $55

Ozark Tile

Have you wanted to learn how to "set in seams"? Then this is the class for you. Join Pat in this workshop to learn the tips and techniques to sew the Ozark Tile quilt. A popular pattern from the Kansas City Star Newspaper from the 1930's. The center squares can be either a muslin for a signature block or fussy cut them to show off your favorite print or icon. Let's get together to use your scrappy fabric, adding some new and exciting prints or solids.
