2023 - 10 - Back to classes!

Dear friend of KISSed Quilts, 

Sharing another customer quilt ribbon result at the Central Washington State Fair - Carol M. entered her Affairs of the Heart quilt that I was honored to quilt. This quilt has beautiful needle turn applique and hand embroidery work. Well done!

Affairs Of the Heart

WSQ - Spokane Quilt Show is happening October 20-22 - click on the link for more details. In putting this into the newsletter I noticed the Raffle Quilt was made by Ginger Patano --I met her going to WSQ classes years ago--she was such a delight. Unfortunately she passed away in 2020. What a treasure to provide one of her beautiful quilts for the WSQ raffle. Buy a ticket!


Feathered Star 

It can be for a 12" block or as a medallion for the center of a quilt at whatever size you'd like or just one large block as the whole quilt.

Class is scheduled for Monday November 13, 2023   $40
Structured instruction in the morning. Stay as long as you'd like. Signups required by October 24, with payment and size of block you wish to make. Fee includes class instruction and foundation papers or cutting instructions based on desired size for one block.

Please stop by during open days this month to sign-up and indicate the size block you want to make. 

Does the Feathered Star feel too complicated?  Would you like to do a BASIC Foundation Paper Piecing Class? I taught this at an AQS show a few years back and gives you the basics of various angles and as a bonus instructions for a symmetrically designed border.  $25 -- includes paper foundations, bring your own fabric. Date TBD.


Another option is would you like to make the Dark Side of the Moon block as a way to learn paper piecing? You can do either block for this class. I'm planning to teach this at Sew Expo next year in Puyallup so here is an opportunity to get it sooner. Dark Side of the Moon kit with class fee - total $40.

You might be interested in Violet Craft's Foundation Patterns once you've gotten the bug of foundation paper piecing. Violet has both English and Paper Piecing patterns, you can find the ones I have here....and her additional selections that I could bring in as well or you can download PDFs here. There are other artists who have these types of patterns, but I thought I'd highlight hers in this newsletter.



Want a formal class ?  -- let me know what you'd like to learn and we'll organize it!

Making any NFL themed quilts? Seattle Seahawks has a new fabric print out --so we now have 3 available!

Which brings me to a question for each of you --are there styles/themes of fabric, notions, tools that I don't carry that you wish I did?  Please let me know. As we prepare for the new space I'd like to be on the look out for new products that appeal to you!

Hope to see you soon! Thanks for reading.
