pattern. Just about any print
can be used for this project--
Marla will give you a pre-class

how to determine how much of
your fabric you will need based on
the print you choose.

You will love this fast, fun quilt as you

rick rack for the sashing, and it goes
together so easily that you'll want to
make more!

AccuQuilt Club--July
Fantastic Firework Table Topper

in Longmont


Thursday, July 25, 2019
from 10am to 1pm
This three day summer sewing camp
is for kids who have completed Level
Two camp or who have attended Sew
Fun for Kids classes regularly during
the year. Instructor permission is
required to enroll in Level Three.

Level Three campers will make a fun
kaleidoscope quilt wall hanging.
Choose from a variety of kits from
different fabrics to suit your taste.
You'll use our AccuQuilt die cutter and
dies, and you will design and piece
together your own unique kaleidoscope.
Then you will use the BERNINA
longarm quilting machine to quilt it!

Project materials, snacks, water and
lunch on the third day of camp are
included in fee. Please bring your own
lunch on days one and two of camp.
Kids use our classroom sewing
machines. Some additional supplies
necessary—please see supply list
.
This class is for intermediate quilters
who want to learn to use rulers
and the #72 Ruler Foot from
BERNINA. You'll get comfortable using
these fabulous quilting tools as you
quilt your own BERNINA ruler panel,
designed by Amanda Murphy just
for this purpose! You'll use all the
rulers in the BERNINA ruler set
including nested circles, nested
ovals, squiggle, 4 in 1 and straight
line. Once you complete your panel,
you'll have the confidence you need
to use rulers to finish all your quilting
projects!

 
Get to know your AccuQuilt die
cutter and dies in this monthly club!

July's project in Longmont is the
Fantastic Firework Table Topper.
You could also choose to change the
fabrics to suit whatever holiday you
like! In this class you'll use the
AccuQuilt 6" Qube Mix and Match die
set along with the Snail's Trail Block
on Board die to create this festive table
topper. You will love how easily the
blocks come together--no trimming
"dog ears" after piecing, and your
pieces will all have reference marks
for you to match them before you sew.
Join us for some summer fun--
take a day off from yard work and come
and quilt with us!
