Let’s get together for a sew-along with your guild or group. You’ll learn new techniques, finish a project, have fun, and enjoy seeing the members of your guild or group. There will be time in between the sessions the finish the sewing before the next session. All sew-alongs are live, virtual sessions using my Zoom account.
This is how it works.
- Cost is $35 per person and includes all of the Zoom sessions, the patterns or clues to whatever project your group chooses. See below for options.
- Minimum of 10 people to schedule the sew-along.
- The day and time of the Zoom meetings are determined with the guild or group. We can schedule monthly, weekly, every other week, etc., whatever works for your guild or group.
- Each Zoom session is 2 hours long. The first 30 minutes will be learning a new technique or learn the next step. The rest of the time is spent sewing together.
- Most sew-alongs are 5 – 7 sessions.
- Sessions are via live Zoom meetings. We will use my Zoom account.

Mystery Panel Quilt – 6 sessions. You can use a panel that is horizontal or vertical for this quilt. If you don’t have a panel you like, find a fabric with a large print for the panel. Finished size 66″ x 78″.
Block of Month or Week
Sherbert Delight – 7 sessions. Each session you will receive 2 blocks to work on. The last session we will work on the sashing between the blocks and you’ll receive the finishing instructions. Quilt size is 81″ x 99″.
During the sessions you’ll learn new techniques on how the blocks are constructed. The Blocks are 12″ Finished. Many of the blocks have HST (Half Square Triangles). You’ll learn how to make them with different techniques include using Thangles, Easy Angler Ruler, the Omni Grid 96 ruler or sewing and squaring the block up. The sashing of this quilt will be using the Tri-Recs ruler. Templates will also be provided if you don’t have the rulers or Thangles.
Birthday Blooms – 7 sessions. Let’s get together for a bloomin’ good time as we create birthday bloom blocks. Each session you’ll receive 2 birthday bloom blocks. The last session we’ll create the garden trellis connector blocks and sashing. A few extra surprises during this program.
Choose one of my patterns or a quilt your guild wants to sew. We’ll spend 5 weeks together working on the quilt. Each week we will have a new assignment for the quilt and at the end of our sessions your quilt top will be finished and ready to quilt.
Each session we will meet for 2 hours learning the next step and then spend the rest of the time sewing. You will have time between the sessions to finish the step.
If you choose a commercial pattern, each attendee will need to purchase the pattern.
NOTE: I can create a pattern if I’m given a block and the size of quilt the guild or group would like. I’ll determine the sewing directions, setting, and borders. No extra cost to create the pattern but then the pattern will be part of my library and can be used and sold by me.
View my Etsy shop for some of my patterns or below is a list of quilts I’ve already taught.
- Jacobs Ladder – The traditional Jacob’s Ladder quilt block is an all-time favorite, and when blocks are sewn together side by side they create a quilt with diagonal pathways across its surface. Jacob’s Ladder is assembled from a combination of four-patch and half square triangle units. The block is easy to make when you use quick piecing methods to assemble it. Learn new quick piecing methods when making the four-patch and learn how to use Thangles to make perfect half square triangles.
- Rag Quilt – 5 sessions. A rag quilt is soft, cuddly and easy to put together. This quilt is great for the beginner quilter and fun for the experienced quilter. Rag quilts are made from flannel or home spun fabrics. They have exposed seam allowances on the front and finished traditional seams on the backs. When you are done with this rag quilt it will be ready to use, everything including the quilting is done in class.
Stash Pot Pie
Stash Pot Pie is designed as a 6 month program to help you use up your stash. Each month you will receive a new quilt pattern designed for beginner to intermediate students. Most of the quilts are lap-size so you’ll be able to finish it during the month. There are options to make it a larger size quilt if desired.
