Up-Coming Classes and FYI

Linda Kay had her "Tote Club" class on Monday and two ladies went home with this Mini Messenger Tote bag. Shannon used batiks and Jan has the dragonflies and I think they did a super job. It really is fun to finish a project in one class sitting.

The Twisting Twice Class is coming up next Thursday, May 5. This is a quilt that uses that "Twister" acrylic ruler, the Let's Twist book and large squares of fabric. You can't believe how fun it is to watch the pieces being cut out and reassembled to create these spinning pinwheels and I love the use of the Red, White and Blues in this sample by Linda Kay.

It's a fast quilt and a perfect one to make if you want a complex look in a short length of time. And, no, there is not a lot of wasted fabric!

Now, if you want to decorate for the 4th of July and don't have much time, this might be for you! Fireworks! with Carolyn Burga on Friday, May 6. It's a super little wallhanging that can be left unadorned or blinged out with embellishments!

If you are getting or new emailings and want to send in a comments, we'd love to hear what you think and don't forget the St. Gabriel Community Center/ Giving Quilt Inc show next Saturday, May 7.
