Coming to The Calvert Quilt Shop February 2020! "HARMONY" Block-of-the-Month Club
When we make a quilt we hope to achieve a pleasing combination of fabrics and design with our work. Nancy Rink, fabric designer for Marcus Brothers Fabrics has designed a beautiful collection of harmonious fabrics and teamed them up with a classic center medallion star with applique highlights and pieced blocks. Our course will meet once each month for 9 months, creating another area of the quilt each month. This is truly the best way to make a bed quilt, sorting the top into 9 manageable parts. Your homework is to finish each part during the month. And, of course, Marti always tries to sneak in a little history whenever she teaches a BOM. Do you have a favorite song - one that fills your heart as you listen to its words and music? Songwriters throughout time have touched our hearts with their words and music that harmonize together. Each month we will look at the lives of famous writers of hymns, patriotic ballads, country western classics, soul, Broadway, R & B and others that you have loved. The lives of these artists will touch your heart and - Boy!! - don't we need our hearts touched considering the times we are living through today?!? Here is how it works - 1) Each month you will receive a kit of fabrics to create that month's lesson. 2) You may bring your sewing machine to class for a "sit and sew" OR come for instructions and demo and go home to finish your month's lesson. 3) 1st Organizational meeting is: Sat. Feb. 15 OR Mon. Feb. 17 @ 10AM A $30 course registration (which pays for your pattern booklet) is due before this meeting (we can only sign up 10 students at the present time, so please register as soon as you are able) 4) At registration, you will need to pay tuition for the first 3 months of the course (this will cover fabrics and lessons - $30 per month) A monthly schedule of dates and lessons will be passed out at registration!
