Piece Like Crazy

Tues, April 18th.  - (FULL with wait list) $60

"Piece Like Crazy" 6 hour workshop for those registered.


6 hours Skill level: Beginner

In this class, students can select ANY crazy quilt from any One Sister or Buggy Barn publication. That's right-each student could potentially be making a different quilt! This is a fun class and students learn my popular "crazy" piecing technique (stacking fabric, cutting on the lines, shuffling, and stitching it all together). This trademark piecing method is easy and forgiving, ensuring quilting success for piecers of all levels. This fun technique keeps you coming back for more, one quilt after another, and will keep you "piecing like crazy" long after the class is over!


*Purchase the Buggy Barn or One Sister “Crazy” pattern of your choice and select fabrics according to the requirements on the pattern. Everyone must purchase a pattern or book; it is a violation of federal copyright law to reproduce our patterns by any means.

*Freezer paper *Paper scissors

*Pencil & 6” x 24” ruler for tracing (Please don’t freehand trace!)

*60mm Rotary cutter with a sharp blade and mat (18” x 24” size or larger)

*Press pad and iron is optional but there’s lots of ironing!

*6” x 24” ruler

*15” or 20-1/2” square ruler to use to square your blocks.

*Sewing machine and sewing supplies


Have your fabrics ironed and ready to stack and cut, but please NO CUTTING before class.


Trace the crazy pattern onto freezer paper, one copy for each stack of fabric. For instance, if you have thirty fat quarters, you can cut them in two piles of fifteen, or three piles of ten so you will need two or three copies depending on how many fabrics you are comfortable cutting through. (I usually cut through twelve to fifteen at a time.) If you are making a pattern that stacks in more than one pile, (i.e. Heart Crazies, Log Cabin Crazies, Star Crazies, Coneflower Crazies, Crazy Rays) you will also need a copy of the master for each pile to stack on

Available patterns:

Buggy Barn Crazies

Crazy Mexican Hat Dance

Log Cabin Crazies

**Heart Crazies

**Basket Crazies

Needle Turn Applique

Thurs, April 20th   - CANCELLED!

Applique 6 hour workshop for those registered. SIGN UP NOW!


6 hour class skill level: Beginner

I teach needle turn applique, a method I think is easier to prepare and gets student stitching quickly. I discuss why I use the supplies I do, and one that is noticeably absent are the pins! This is a pin free method making your applique easily portable-no more worry about losing or sitting on a pin in the car! I will also explain how to prepare the motif so that its ready for placement onto your background, light or dark, it doesn't matter with this method! During the stitching phase of class, I will explain how to achieve a sharp point at each star point and I even have a trick for keeping threads from unraveling in the valleys. We finish up class with learning how to make bias for vines. This is a very comprehensive class and students learn a lot! I've always said: "if you can stitch down a binding on a quilt, then you can applique!"


*One Sister or Buggy Barn Applique Book or pattern of your choosing

*Fabrics for your project
*Freezer paper

*#2 pencil for tracing motifs onto freezer paper *paper scissors for cutting out templates

*fabric scissors for cutting out motifs

*small, sharp appliqué scissors for clipping

*fine needles such as straw or milliners. I use a #10 straw needle.

*100% cotton thread that matches the color of the motifs you are stitching down

*Glue Baste-It

*Pencils for tracing: I’m not too fussy brand wise if you have some that you like to use. I personally use: a #2 pencil, a sharpie fine point, and the white and silver chalk pencils from Quilter’s Choice (Makers of Glue Baste It).

*Clover bias tape makers if needed. (I will bring mine to demo during class)

*Helpful but not required: a small ( about 8-1/2” x 11”) cork board with a piece of fine grain sand paper glued to the back for tracing around motifs.
