Quilt Shops & Quilting Groups 

 

I can't be in two places at once, but my patterns can!

Yes, all my quilt patterns are now available for classes and bees in local quilt stores worldwide. 

 

Shops: imagine running my latest BOM in real time, as well as any of my other patterns when it suits you and your quilters. Read more about my quilts by visiting my 'quilt archives' area over on my blog (on the header bar) and remember, all my patterns are available for classes. 

 

How? Quilt Shops and Class Studios may now purchase a license which allows them to run classes based on any of my quilts. Fees are low,  making this an option for quilt stores of every size and budget.

 

When? Whenever it suits you and your schedule!

 

And all shops taking part will be added to a Quilt Store Directory so that quilters worldwide can find which store is running classes based on my patterns. Shops will be provided with class requirements lists, pattern and promotion page for each pattern - making you class ready!

Heart It

Heart It

A pieced quilt, perfect for beginners

All that's left to decide is, which one to make?

 

Can't decide? Here are my recommendations for classes, based on skill level

Pomegranate 

 

Skill Level: Suitable for all skill levels

Wall Hanging: 24" x 27" 

 

Schedule: Ideal for weekend classes, retreats and workshops. Pattern is suitable for top only classes or top and follow on quilt and or binding lesson. This pattern is also suitable for pen workmanship technique highlights.  

 

When? Whenever it suits you and your schedule!

Red Delicious 

 

Skill Level: Suitable for all skill levels

Wall Hanging: 50" x 52" 

 

Schedule: Originally a Mystery BOM, this quilt consists of 12 x blocks making it an ideal 'term' length class. Blocks in the pattern are individually gorgeous and can be adapted into 'mini' projects outright to suit shop themes. The middle cherry basket is particularly popular when adapted into a cushion and the rose block makes a great Valentine for  applique meet ups. Then you have the tea pot block and ever popular vase and toadstool block - there's something for everyone here! That's what make this pattern so versatile. And it doesn't stop there, you can also extend your class schedules with the matching apple cushion and the beautiful Cherry Thieves table runner (see below).

 

When? Whenever it suits you and your schedule!

Apple Cushion 

 

Skill Level: Suitable for all skill levels

Cushion: 17.5" 

 

Schedule: Ideal for weekend classes, retreats and workshops. Pattern is suitable an an applique technique class or create the complete finished cushion which includes quilting the design and finishing the cushion back. Small enough to make it suitable for beginner domestic machine quilters or 'day length' project meet ups.

12 Days of Christmas

 

Skill Level: Suitable for all skill levels

Wall Hanging: 42.5 x 51.5" 

 

Schedule: This quilt is ideal and achievable as an ongoing weekly class item as well as being  suitable for weekend workshops for those wanting to create a festive quilt 'quickly'. The 'baubles' are attached to the finish quilt, making them interchangeable, meaning you can change the theme from '12 days of Christmas' to any fabric style, fussy cutting or broderie perse ideas as suits your quilters.

 

This is an ideal project for quilters wanting to make 'photo printable' projects. The baubles can easily and effectively incorporate treasured photos printed onto calcio and there's room for plenty of embellishment, charms and buttons too.

 

When? October onwards or Christmas in July
