Nine Quarter Bag

This is a really useful (and big!) tote bag designed as an excuse to use those fat quarters that keep calling! Whether it is a new line you can’t resist, or treasures from your stash, use your favorite fabrics and color combinations and make a great new bag – for yourself or as a gift. In two sizes, with lots of pockets and as much or as little structure as you want, the Nine Quarter Bag is fun and easy – but it is hard to stop at one.

Beginning Watercolor for Quilters

In this class, students will learn to use Derwent’s Inktense blocks and pencils to create a dry watercolor image. Using water and fabric medium, we will then transform the dry image into a permanent watercolor. Suitable for creating backgrounds, applique cutouts, personalized fabric, or complete images, this method is simple and accessible. Swan takes the fear out of fabric painting and allows the artist in every quilter to surface with this simple technique.
