Upcoming Classes at Lyons Quilting in Lyons, CO
You’ve pieced a striking top and the quilting is lovely, but the last step is holding you back. This class will take you through the binding choices that confront you. Topics will include double fold binding, two-toned binding, art quilt facing, self binding; bias vs. straight grain; and hand sewing vs. machine sewing. We’ll discuss which type is best in a variety of situations. This class is appropriate for any level of quilter. At Lyons Quilting: 4/30/22; 10am - 3pm. $50
Has machine quilting made hand quilting obsolete? Not at all! It remains a viable option to finish your quilts, whether done over your entire quilt or to enhance certain areas. This class will cover how to hand quilt using a lap hoop (short stitch and big stitch), how to choose a quilting design to compliment your quilt top, and how to mark your quilt. At Lyons Quilting: 4/3/22; 1:30 - 4:30pm. $30

I have a pattern featured in Quilts & More Magazine
Scrap Lab Design Challenge: A quilt shop is asked to make a fat quarter stack from various manufacturers and 3 designers are given the challenge of designing something using those fabrics. My local quilt shop, Lyons Quilting in Lyons, CO, put together the fabric and I, as one of the designers, designed a wall hanging that I am calling "Amble Along". So much fun! The magazine will be on news stands May 21, 2021.
