Quilt top only. Measures 66" x 42" without borders

The newest class sample called "Not Your Daddy's Log Cabin" is ready to be sandwiched and quilted. Who'd like to be part of the flagship class for the roll-out? January 15th is the tentative date for the class.

For this class I suggest printing the patterns (there are 4) on 17lb vellum. Vellum is much easier than copy paper to work with on patterns with lots of little segments. Each of the four different blocks has 22 pieces.

So, here's a link for 100 sheets, which should last you years:

And here's a link for 50 sheets:

Feel free to find your own, but IT MUST BE 17# (LB) translucent vellum. Sometimes you can find it pads, but they usually need to be cut down to 8 1/2 x 11.

Once I get the chance to make the sandwich I'll share my "Basting 2.0" method with you. For a sneak peak, follow this link to see Kim Jamieson Hirst's awesome DIY quilt basting Spray. You can find the video here.

Feel free to comment "me" if you'd like to be in the class on the 15th.

Cutting specs will be on the website by the end of the weekend (take that with a grain of salt:))

I welcome your comments and thoughts.
