Every Monday at 9:30 unless we are closed due to a holiday. Come join this dedicated group who make quilts for families who have experienced a tragedy in their life, for the homeless and for those who have served our country that have come home and are struggling. Their quilts have been given to children who have deployed military parents, children with cancer and women and children in shelters and the elderly in nursing homes. The group not only serves our community here in RI but has sent many quilts to victims of devastating hurricanes and to our wounded Military men and women in Afghanistan US based Hospitals.

This jelly roll friendly quilt can be made in 5 sizes from wall hanging to king. This pattern was designed by Daniela Stout for Cozy Quilt Designs. The sample quilt is the 76" square Throw size. I especially liked the way the quilt is assembled. You plan one quarter of the quilt, then repeat the exact arrangements three more times.

Ready for a unique variation of flying geese? The stars in our Crossfire pattern are comprised of a new unit we call Birds Of Paradise. It looks more challenging then the normal flying geese but, our innovation process allows you to build it slightly over sized and then trim it to the perfect measurements. You'll get hooked the very first time you make one. The pattern requires the use of a Large Square Squared Tool.

We can add even more visual interest to Karla Alexander?s stack, shuffle and sew method with gentle curves meandering in and out of your quilt. Your project will come out with personality and pizazz any way you slice it. My quilt top reminded me of flowing water, so I ended up with a shower curtain, a super easy way of finishing your quilt without actually quilting it. This class will be a nice way to welcome the end of winter while staying dry inside the shop.

This is a Series of 12 Monthly Classes based on the Quilt Design by Jen Kingwell. Are you ready to embark on an out-of-the ordinary quilting adventure? Unlike other Block of the Month projects, there is no specific pattern, no hard-and-fast rules, and no kit. Your design will be organic, developing and changing as you go along. There are so many possibilities, limited only by your imagination and sense of adventure. Every month we?ll have a 3-hour class with plenty of time to sew, experiment with color and rehearse your ideas on the design wall. If you?re timid, don?t worry - there will be plenty of instruction, suggestions, different techniques to learn, templates to follow, guidelines and sharing of ideas and patterns. At the end of your 12-month journey, you?ll be amazed at what you?ve done! You will have made an incredible quilt -- your own personal, one-of-a-kind creation. The only requirements are your energy, imagination, patience with the creative process and adventurous spirit! 2 Payment Options: (Paid in Advance): $100 for 6 months (Due 10/26 & 3/21) Or $175/year (due 10/26)

This quilt was originally published as Walk in the Park by Linda and Carl Cullivan in the February/March 2019 issue of McCall's Quick Quilts. The whole quilt is made of half square triangles so I decided not to follow the rule of adding 7/8" to the measurements since all the blocks will be the same size. This makes for easier cutting. I am offering this quilt in three sizes: small (47" X 55"), medium (57" X 67") or large (67" X 79"). My sample is medium. It also looks great horizontally.

Cost: $ 20.00
The pattern for this 78 in x 78 in quilt appeared in Annie's Quilting with pre-cuts. Using 10 in layer cake square is a great way to save time preparing to sew. I used a softer color collection but this quilt is terrific with brightly colored squares.

Cost: $ 25.00
This will be an all day class, 9:30 to 4:30, to make a quilt that is approximately 60in X 60in. Before choosing your fabric, take a look at the sample fabric cards that are displayed in the classroom at RYCO and are also on my website talltreescreations.com. These sample cards are meant as a guide. You should choose your own combinations of fabrics to make your quilt unique. You will be using 10 fabrics plus a neutral background fabric. Think of the 10 fabrics as 5 pairs. You can use all of one color or divide it into 2 colors. Bring your lunch or plan to go to one of the nearby restaurants. Or you can participate in our pot luck lunch - just bring whatever you want to share, and bring your own drinks.

Cost: $ 25.00
