Block of the Month Sew Along

Stepping Beyond DRUNKARD'S PATH


Drunkard’s Path never looked so good so easily as it does when you make it with Phillips Fiber Arts amazing Cut A Round tool. Each month from June through November, you’ll learn a way to use the Cut A Round to make yet another style Drunkard’s Path block. You’ll become an expert in using the Cut A Round tool to add circles and curves to your quilts be they Drunkard’s Path, other traditional blocks or your own creations. 


This workshop is the first collaboration between tool designer Cheryl Phillips, creator of the Cut A Round, and national quilt teacher Dana Jones. Class sessions will combine Dana’s live teaching via Zoom and Cheryl’s recorded computer-animated demonstrations.


You can select the weekday — third Mondays — or weekend — third Saturdays — time. Classes will be from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Mountain Time (noon-3 p.m. Eastern, 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Central, and 9 a.m.-noon Pacific.) 

The course costs $150. For information, contact Dana at: Register now.

Even the back of this quilt is special. Made by Cheryl Phillips.

Finding Your Design Sense


When I offered this five-week introduction to design and beyond class last year, I had no idea what an amazing experience it would be. I hope you'll take this opportunity to take your quilting to unexpected new places.  


You'll learn about line, shape, color, texture, value and more. You'll learn where to find inspiration from nature to architecture, from life to the art world. You'll develop a design practice that incorporates such things as sketching, working from thumbnails, journaling, photography, exercise, painting, and especially play, lots of play. Over the course of the five months, you will uncover and develop your unique design sense. 

We'll meet the third Thursdays of each month from April to August. The daytime class will be from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Mountain Daylight Time (noon-3 p.m. Eastern, 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Central and 9 a.m.-noon Pacific). The afternoon/evening class, will be 4-7 p.m. Mountain Daylight Time (6-9 p.m. Eastern, 5-8 p.m. Central and 3-6 p.m. Pacific.)

There are just 10 seats in this class so sign up now.

Finding Your Color Sense


Each of us has an innate color sense though not all of us are in touch with it. My approach to teaching color for quilters is to help you find your color sense through a series of activities. Terrified of color? This class is for you. Good with color? This class is for you. Want to understand more about color? This class is for you.  You’ll learn to find color palettes in photos and your surroundings, how to create dimension with color, and color theory in ways that won’t cause your eyes to glaze over. Home play activities will complement what you learn in class.


You can choose between the daytime class from 10 a.m. - 1 p.m. Mountain Time or 4-7 p.m. Mountain Time the first Thursdays of the month from September through December. Register now.
