MMQG News!

 

Registration is now open for non-members

for August classes with

quilter, business owner, author and teacher

Cristy Fincher

On Thursday, August 30th, 9:30am - 4:30pm, she will conduct "Circle Maze." Curved piecing is easier than ever! Discover how to create the Circle Maze quilt with the Piec-lique technique (developed by her mother, Sharon Schamber). This simple and fun technique takes the fear out of curves, and replaces it with unlimited possibilities, without the fuss of special sewing machine feet or a ton of pins. Learning how to sew curves with Piec-lique will add many new skills to your quilting "tool box".

Kit fee is $15, payable the day of class and includes all of the templates needed for class, as well as the pattern. Location is Children's Outpatient Center, 605 Busbee Drive, Kennesaw. Supply list is here.

On Saturday, September 1st, 9:30am - 4:30pm, she will teach "Stella Stars Grand Finale and Shadow Blossom Blocks." Stellar Stars is a dynamic quilt filled with 16 different skill building blocks that will excite and challenge you. Whether you’re a new or experienced quilter, building your piecing skills and confidence is what this BOM is all about. The workshop will focus on one main block, the Grand Finale, and one accent block, the Shadow Blossom. You will receive the pattern for the full Stellar Stars quilt!! Techniques and skills include: precise piecing, machine applique, foundation/paper piecing, glue basting, nesting/spinning seams, and cutting with specialty rulers.

Kit fee is $30, payable the day of class. Location is Community Bible Church, 200 Chastain Road, Kennesaw. The supply list will be available on our website soon.

Both classes are for the confident beginner or intermediate skill level.

You can learn more on our website or go straight to the registration form. Visit Cristy's website here.
