American Quilt Series (Saturday Book Class)

Instructor: Terri Nussbaum


Come join us for a novel idea !! Really a novel, or novels we should say. In the American Quilt trilogy, The Pattern, The Pledge and The Promise, bestselling author Jane Peart follows three generations of family through the stories of its adventurous young women - heroines of courage, character and faith. Beginning in the mountains of North Carolina, and then through the Civil War, across the country by wagon train to California and finally across the Pacific to the romance and wild beauty of Hawaii in the late 19th century. These three books are love stories with a lovely quilt to match. Join us once a month for a story, quilting and a little bit of love.

Scrap Bag Buddies

Instructor: Terri Nussbaum


Become one of the buddies and discover the fun of playing in your stash, visiting with old friends and discovering some new ones. Find new and exciting print combinations, in short do what is the best thing about quilting - playing with fabric. Terri will help you with value, variety, pattern and fabric selections. We will take the fear out of mixing print and color, yes it is fun to mix it up. In the first session we will go over guidelines and a study sheet, look at quilts and then jump right in and start on our quilts. The best thing about working in a group is that if you don't have that perfect piece of fabric maybe someone at the table might and maybe we can make some deals!! Don't have much of a stash, Carriage Country has the perfect solution! Fabric Frolic is the first Friday of each month and a great way to start collecting for your stash.

Vintage Chain

Instructor: Terri Nussbaum


This quilt is soft, old and full of charm. But the best part of this quilt is that it is made from 90% jelly rolls. Using jelly rolls most of the work is done for you! Pre-cut 2-1/2" strips, all in coordinating colors. I did choose one background and one fabric for my center chain. This grounded the quilt and gave it a direction. The ball's in your court on this one, you can cut your own strips or you can take the easy way out and use the jelly rolls. (I won't tell which way you go!)

Three Sessions - Wednesdays, Jan 28, Feb 4, Feb 25, 6:00 - 9:00pm

Class Fee: $50.00

Crazy Cakes

Instructor: Terri Nussbaum


This is a great use for the layer cakes that you can now buy in quilt shops. They are a stack of about 40 fabrics that have been cut in 10-1/2" squares. These are fun and this pattern uses the whole square just as it is. So for the class there is no pre-cutting, just grab a couple of layer cakes and come on down !! In the class sample I chose two different layer cakes so that I would have a little variety in my fabrics, but that have the same color values. The sky is the limit, have fun with this one, after all it is a Crazy Man, Crazy Man.

Two Sessions - Tuesdays, Mar 3, Mar 10, 6:00 - 9:00pm

Class Fee: $40.00
