String Pieced Applique Quilt Part 2
There is lots to talk about this week:
New pattern release -- just in time for St. Patrick's day.
Three quilts to celebrate your Irish roots -- or maybe just your favorite March holiday.
Irish Eyes includes instructions for a lap quilt with 12 inch blocks and two miniature quilts with 6 inch blocks. (FYI - The miniature quilts were previously released as a separate pattern.)
Pair this pattern with Studio 180 Design's Tucker Trimmer (or your favorite half square triangle square up ruler) for a perfect bundle.
Irish Eyes retails for $10. Find it at your local quilt shop -- or purchase directly from me.

I am still working on a quilt to incorporate this block/motif -- which I hope to share with you next week.
What would you do with these circles?
If you send me a photo, I would be happy to share your ideas as well next week.

I will also include layouts to complement each of the blocks!
You will be amazed at how much you can learn in this concentrated setting away from life's distractions.

To learn more about any of my classes (detailed below) or the show in general, check out the Minnesota Quilt Show website.
This mystery event will have you working through clues throughout the day as you guess the pattern that I have designed just for MN Quilters. There will be lots of clues throughout the event -- that will hopefully keep you guessing unti the end.
With Electric Quilt you can redraft these blocks. This class will focus on how to “read a block” and then come up with the most efficient way to draft it with Electric Quilt.
The blocks in this class are those that can be done in a “grid” format – basically just like drawing with a pencil and graph paper. Within Electric Quilt these blocks are drafted within Easy Draw.
Level: Advanced Beginner.
Three different layouts will be covered along with tips on auditioning your T Shirts in Electric Quilt. One of those layouts will incorporate using pieces and different size T Shirts (think Custom Set).
Instructor Led Online Class
This online class will cover basic navigation of the software, creating a new project, using the libraries, using Quick Quilts for fast projects, adding borders, coloring tools/fabrics, creating quilt labels and printing quilts, blocks, fabric yardage estimates, rotary cutting and foundation patterns. By the end of class you will be comfortable working with the program and be able to explore additional features on your own. Users of all levels are welcome, with special emphasis on beginners.
Dates: February 13, 20, 27, March 6, 1 - 2:30 pm (Central time) (four sessions)
Class size will be limited to 8 participants. Seats are available on a first come first serve basis. This class will be exactly like taking at "in person" class at a show or shop. We will use screen sharing technology -- so you will be able to see my screen and if you have specific questions, I will also be able to view yours as well.
Instructor Led Online Class
I decided that the heart embroidery designs needed to be featured with the pattern in celebration of Valentine's Day.
