Lynne Fanthorpe- Colour Wash

PLEASE NOTE THIS CLASS HAS BEEN CANCELLED

Saturday November 16 and November 23, 2019

I have been sewing since I was 7 years old. My journey into quilting started over 20 years go with a “Colourwash” quilt. I felt I needed to improve my colour choice decisions and I knew the “ Colourwash” style would do just that. This technique has taught me to not be afraid of new techniques.
After reading three different books on “Colourwash” and taking a class by Lorraine Torrence, I was ready to start my first “colourwash” quilt.
Learning this technique has immensely improved my ability to confidently use colour in all my quilting.

STRIP AND QUILT AS YOU GO

A great technique for all those left-over strips. Two techniques will be demonstrated, random multi-coloured strips on angle and one colour strips sewn in a round. We will also use scraps of fabric, batting and backing for borders and backing. Blocks are quilted as they are sewn. The sashing is the “trick.”

Rulers by Silly Moon with Kellie Kaczmarek

Tuesday, November 12, 2019

I am a Canadian quilter, business owner, wife, mother and owner of two very large dogs.  I have been quilting for a short time but have jumped in with both feet!  I purchased a longarm after quilting for approximately a year and needed “rulers” to keep me within the lines, so to speak.  So, I made them!

I am fortunate to have experience in, and access to CNC Milling equipment, as well as a variety of software programs that enable me (along with my math guru hubby) to create machine quilting rulers that will do just what I want them to. I really enjoy coming up with new ideas, that make ruler work fun and accessible for all quilters.

I love attending retreats, guild meetings and trade shows not only to showcase our products, but to meet quilters, and take in all the great feedback and suggestions they bring to the table.

Silly Moon Quilting Co is proudly Canadian, and all our rulers are designed and manufactured in beautiful British Columbia.  The company started less that a year ago, and we are excited to see steady growth with a large number of repeat customers!  I always warn people, rulers are like potato chips, you can’t have just one!!

Demonstration:

I will be bringing my Juki, and will be set up to show on a large screen how to use a few of our rulers.  I will also be covering the basic of ruler work as well as explaining the difference in our domestic and longarm rulers.  I will be talking about how we make our rulers and how they are different from others on the market.
