Description:

 

Jenn’s Journey

“Jenn’s Journey” is a modern play on a Snail’s Trail quilt layout. This design makes excellent use of those 1-yard+ fabric cuts you have been collecting. This class includes step by step instructions for the Large Square Squared and the Diamond Rects tools. Additionally, I’ll share lots of hints and tips on machine piecing, matching points, cutting and pressing. You can choose from three project sizes – Throw (68″x 68″), Twin (68” x 92”), and Queen (92” x 116”)

 

Grand Central

Six Quilt Sizes and Settings included.

Grand Central, inspired by the iconic beauty and legacy of Grand Central Terminal, an historic world-famous landmark in Midtown Manhattan. Michelle combines blocks inspired by the great architectural to create a beautiful quilt. She combined the Viaduct Wedge and Celestial Star Blocks to create a Quilt Center with tons of interest and movement. The Quilt Center is surrounded by a pieced Snail’s Trail Border. The Double and King Quilt Sizes have an extra pieced bonus border with Train Platform Blocks.

Grand Central comes together easily with the Studio 180 Design’s Wedge Star™, Large Square Squared™, and Tucker Trimmer III™ tools.
Finished Quilt Sizes: Wall 50in x 50in, Throw 69in x 69in, Large Throw 80in x 80in, Double 99in x 99in, Queen 100in x 100in, King 120in x 120in

 

About Barbara Dann

Who wakes up one morning, realizes quilting is her dream and passion (although she’d never quilted before), and buys a longarm quilting machine? ME! That was 21 years ago, and I’ve never looked back.

After many years of quilting in my basement, I moved my studio downtown. Overlooking the Centre County Courthouse, I have a beautiful view of Victorian Bellefonte.

Longarm machine quilting – for “everyday” to “quilt of a lifetime” quilts. I’ll help you choose a customized quilting design that will enhance your quilt top.

Custom quilts – so you’re not a quilter but would love to have a quilt. Maybe you saw a pattern or design you like. Maybe you need a customized style or color for your home. We can work together and I’ll make the quilt for you.

I’m a quilt instructor specializing in Studio 180 Design tools and techniquesSew on the Go patterns and SEW KIND OF WONDERFUL curved piecing tools and patterns.

    • Hi Ruth…guests usually bring their own machines. I do have one machine that I can rent out to students/quilters that don’t wish to travel with a machine. That makes traveling from a far distance a bit lighter!
