Have A Cuppa Hexies
Half or all day workshop featuring the latest in Jean Ann’s trim tools. Learn how to make easy overlapping seams while sewing this whimsical table runner. Choose a focus fabric for the center of each hexie that allows you to select and cut a 4″ hexagon for the center of each block. The project is perfect for a wall quilt or for a charming baby quilt. The Hexagon Trim Tool cuts 2″, 4″, 6″ and 8″ hexagons with precision. The tool features seam marking holes that allows the quilter to join the hexagons together by matching dot-to-dot to sew the gentle “Y” seams.
Lickety-Split Log Cabin
Half day or all day workshop featuring the new Log Cabin Trim Tool designed by Jean Ann and manufactured by Creative Grids. The tool enables quilters to create Log Cabin, Half Log Cabin and Courthouse Steps blocks by squaring up each round of logs as you go saving oodles of time in cutting and producing a perfect block every time.
Half or all day workshop featuring Jean Ann’s new Pineapple Trim Tool. The tool gives quilters a no-math, no-measure method to make a perfect Pineapple block every time, as quilters stitch, trim, and square up each round of strips as you go for quick and easy sewing.
All Day Workshop – learn the hottest new setting that uses spacers, not sashings. This is a design technique developed by Jean Ann and her sister to create countless original quilt designs. Workshop taught at Houston Quilt Festival in 2011 and coming in 2012.
