Tilted Tango Quilt | Discount Fabric Warehouse

Tilted Tango Quilt – DFW Hilo

We’ve come to the final class in our quilting series with the fabulous Viv Smith. The last class in this 3-quilt series is the amazing Tilted Tango Quilt. Join us at Discount Fabric Warehouse – Hilo on Monday, August 22, 2016 for this fun class.

Quilt Designer for Willow Brook Quilts, Viv Smith, will be here to take you through this fantastic quilt. It’s a wonderful way to close out this quilt series and start off your week.

This quilt is both deceptively easy and intricate at the same time and you’ll want to come to learn how to put it all together! The blocks for this quilt are easy to make and to piece the blocks into rows, we use partial seams, however, the blocks are not put into the traditional quilt squares nor are they truly on point, which makes for a very interesting layout. There’s a choice of two borders to put on the quilt, so make sure you come and join Viv for this different class.

What do you need to bring with you? The pattern, of course, which is available at Discount Fabric Warehouse – Hilo, along with all of the supplies listed on the back. We also encourage you to bring any basic sewing notions that you may need for your own use. You’ll also want to bring a packed lunch, as this is an almost day-long class and you won’t want to miss anything to go run to get lunch. While there are machines for class use, you’ll want to double check with the Discount Fabric Warehouse – Hilo staff prior to the class to ensure that you won’t have to bring your own machine.

So here’s a quick run-down of the basics:

What:  Tilted Tango Quilt Class

When:  Monday, August 22, 2016

20 Asian Blocks Plus Quilt Class | Discount Fabric Warehouse

20 Asian Blocks Plus Quilt Class – DFW Hilo

Are you ready for the second class in Discount Fabric Warehouse’s 3-day/3-quilt series? Join us for the 20 Asian Blocks Plus Quilt Class!

This amazing and beautiful quilt is the creation of Viv Smith, Quilt Designer for Willow Brook Quilts. Viv will be on hand to lead you through piecing together a quilt of your very own!

While this quilt looks complicated and difficult, it’s actually deceptively simple! The base of the quilt is essentially twenty 8 1/2″ blocks, set four across and five down. The fun is choosing where to put the 8 1/2″ square ruler to allow a flower or a bird to fall or grow out of the block! This is where your creativity and individuality comes shining through!

After the quilt top is pieced, we simply fuse this extra piece in place and then raw edge machine stitch it in place when we quilt!

Sound complicated? Don’t worry, Viv will take you step-by-step through the making of this project! You’ll have fun and create an amazing work of art at the same time!

What do you need to create this quilt? First thing you’ll need is the pattern. It can be purchased at Discount Fabric Warehouse – Hilo. The supply list for the quilt is printed on the back of the pattern and you’ll need all of the supplies included on there as well as any basic sewing notions that you would like to bring for your own use. We also ask you to bring a packed lunch as it is a fairly long class. And, finally, if you’d like to practice the machine applique in class, please bring an open toe free motion foot.

So one more time, here are the basics:
