Classes


Beginning Quilting
- Feb 20, 2020 09:30 am

In just five easy three-hour classes, you can learn to successfully finish your first quilt. There is nothing like success to encourage a new quilter! Class includes complete directions for a small quilt featuring two easy blocks that create a new, secondary pattern when combined. Two simple blocks add up to a lap or baby quilt that can be finished during class. This class will run for five weeks in a row, during February and March 2020. Students will start with the basics of cutting and sewing, learn two basic quilt blocks, how to square up and assemble the quilt top, cut and sew borders, mark and baste the quilt top, how to machine quilt and finally, bind and label their quilt. Students get 15% off Class Supplies and Tools purchased at Cherry Tree Quilts.

Circling the Square by Sheryl Hilash
- Mar 28, 2020 10:00 am

Join special guest teacher Sheryl Hilash. You'll be working with curves in this quilt ... but don't worry, it's a lot easier than you think. What makes this quilt so beautiful (and modern) is your color choices. Your negative space can be light or dark ... just make sure it contrasts nicely with the circle colors.

Fabric is Valu-Able Trunk Show
- Apr 25, 2020 01:00 pm

As a retired English teacher, I love a play on words. In the case of quilting, we know how much fabric costs but do we know the role of value in making stunning quilts? There is a quote that says: "Value does all the work; but colour gets all the credit". From this trunk show of 40-50 quilts, you will see what role value plays in creating interesting and eye-catching quilts that can stop you in your tracks.

Remembering The Past - Trunk Show
- Jun 13, 2020 01:00 pm

A trunk show of approximately 40 reproduction quilts as well as authentic vintage quilts from 1800's to early 1900's will reveal fabric, quilting styles, and womens history.
