scrappy classes

I love my scraps! I really do.  Each little piece of fabric has a little memory that goes with it.  My trip to Quilt Market and meeting that wonderful fabric designer, sewing up a special dress for my girl, the pillowcase challenge book, they each have a little memory in my scrap basket.

My love of sewing with my scraps started with this little log cabin quilt.  Here is the tutorial.

I found it on one of my all time favorite blogs Melly and Me.  I met them at Quilt Market too!  They are generous and sweet sisters full of talent.  And a new fabric line!

Well now through my other girl friends at The Tin Thimble, I am able to embark on more scrappy sewing fun.  And you are invited to join me!  I will be teaching 4 classes at The Tin Thimble for their Home Ec sewing classes.

Each classes will be focused around using up some of those special fabric scraps that you have been saving.  Now you will be able to use them and make special items for your home and maybe sew up a gift for a special and lucky friend!

The classes will be held on Wednesday nights in March from 6 p.m. - 9 p.m. for $30 per class.  A supply list will be provided when you sign up. Just call (916) 652-2134. I'll be sharing project photo's with you this coming week!  Here is all of the class info that you will need:

the 1/2 inch strips seem incredibly thin; is that right?

Yes Eileen, that's right. That's what make it all so fun, the imperfection and the randomness of widths that make up some of these scrappy sewing projects. The scrappy log cabin tutorial is not my own. But I did follow Melly's directions and it came out just perfect.
