This is the Log Cabin Wallhanging that we will be making in the beginner quilt class on Feb. 27 and Mar. 6, 2010. We will cover quilting basics such as rotary cutting, 1/4" seams, chain piecing, nesting seams and pressing. On the second day we will cover putting the block together, the quilt sandwich, machine quilting and binding. As soon as I get word that you have paid for the class, I will send a postcard with the list of supplies and tools. And don't worry if you don't have every thing on the list. We quilters love to share.
This is a sampling of the fabrics in the kits. I have changed some of the fabrics due to limited availability of some of them. By changing some of the fabrics all the quilt kits will  not be the same. I also saved 3/4 yd. cuts of most of them in case anyone wants to match the border and binding with the same fabric. And that is optional, you do not have to match the border to the quilt, it can be any fabric you would like.

one 3" strip of red or gold for the center block
one 2" strip of beige
 3 1/2" strip of two different mediums
 3 1/2" strip of two different beiges
5" strip of two different mediums
5" strip of two different beiges
6 1/2" strip of two different medium or darks
6 1/2" strip of one beige
You will also need 3/4 yard of a medium or dark fabric for the border and binding. You can match this fabric to a fabric used in the quilt or not.
I think we will finish eight log cabin blocks in the class (which is enough for a tablerunner) or you may finish another eight at home in the week between classes for the wallhanging.

Ann and I decided that you may pay for kits on the day of the first class, but I have to tell you...."first come, first served" because the kits have different fabrics and you will get first choice if you come to the shop to pay first. Joann...since you've already paid so you need to get here right away.
