Class Description: Inspired by American Folk Art quilts, this Sunburst block quilt is perfect for a spring or summer project. The question one might ask, if it’s possible to make a Sunburst block with Dresden plate centers without any templates and applique. The answer is, yes! This four day class is designed to focus on cutting multiple curves through layers of fabrics and sewing the pieces into Free Form flower blocks. It is easy and fast. Sujata will share many tips on making the Pinwheel blocks and offer suggestions for color combinations and layouts during the class. You may not stop at just one.
We hold our retreats at a church in Carpinteria, California with lovely light to sew by and an really beautiful outdoor patio. Our catered lunches are delicious and our check in Wine and Cheese is a very fun get acquainted event! We do offer each person attending table space of their own to work on and we have a great ironing set up!
For those not familiar with Carpinteria it is home to one of the best quilt stores in the state, Roxanne’s a Wish and a Dream, with a huge selection of fabrics and also yarns, notions and gifts. It is located on the beach, just off the 101 Highway between Santa Barbara and Ventura.
We have arrangements with the Holiday Inn Express Carpinteria for lodging (not included in our pricing) and if you call the local number and tell them you are with us they will set you up with our discounted rate. Number is 1-805-566-9499!
Hope to see you there!
