2 Different Classes

Both of these classes took place at Essem Textiles in Cloverdale. There are 2 more classes planned and others coming in the future. The Fat-Quarter Teddy Bear starts later this month (in 2 different sizes) and the 3D Pinwheels will be in April. The Teddy Bear class is almost full – but Essem will start a wait list for a 2nd class if there is enough interest! If you haven’t sewn at Essem – you are in for a delightful surprise. The classroom is fantastic, lots of plug-ins, great lighting and the hosts are the BEST!!!

Quilt-as-you-go Table Runner

I taught this class a few weeks ago … the participants were amazing and the table runners so diverse! It was pretty awesome … Here’s a peak at them – finished or in progress

Here is Kathy’s … all finished – including the binding!

And here’s Tina’s … the flowers and dragonflies are so pretty!

I haven’t received pictures from any of the other, but here they all are in progress. They are all so very different!

This is my Quilt-as-you-Go Table Runner. I finished it today and it’s my TGIFF for this week! I used fabrics from Island Batik’s Vintage Lace collection. You can read about the quilt that I made with this collection HERE. For the table runner I used the following fabrics:

  • Center: Mini Floral Vine Fall
  • Yellow: Mini Floral Vine Corn
  • Green: Dots: Pineneedle
  • Border & Binding: Medallion- Lace Fall

The center was quilted with Silly Moon’s “Drop” ruler.

Today’s Machine Binding Class

I taught the group a ton of tricks for binding quilts totally by machine. I think they enjoyed learning my radical techniques!

Here they are – hard at work. On the le

2 of the participants brought their Quilt-as-you-Go table runners to learn how to do those tricky angled corners and the regular 90 degree corners. How did I miss getting pictures of 2 of the projects? (Sorry, ladies!) As you can see, the bindings turned out fantastic! I’m super impressed with the 2 that did the straight line final attachment. It took me a LONG time before I ventured from decorative stitches! All of the ladies did a fantastic job!

One who sleeps under a quilt is covered by LOVE!

Happy Quilting!

  1. Where can I get the Teddy bear pattern. I could make it from the picture but don’t want to violate any copyrights. It would be absolutely perfect for Project Linus.

  2. Hi Gail, those sound like great classes. I’m sure that your a wonderful teacher 🙂 Your runner looks great. I took a course with Silly Moon but found that it was really difficult to get the foot (I had to buy a universal foot) to be correct – so I got lots of problems with the tension. One day I’ll have to practice again since I do have quite a few rulers. Thanks for linking up to Free Motion Mavericks!

    • Hi Andrée!
      You need to get the correct foot for your machine. There are so many different feet – and having the right one is essential! Once you have the correct foot, you’ll find using Silly Moon rulers is much easier!
      Thanks for hosting Free Motion Mavericks!


  3. Hi Gail! Isn’t it just THE BEST to be back to in-person classes??! Of course, I just adore the bear quilt since I had to immediately make one myself as soon as I glimpsed yours. The table runner looks fun and all the different versions are fab. Happy Friday! {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne
