Morning Star Quilts
Chair of Your Dreams Quilt Class
With Alethea Ballard of Maverick Quilts
Join me in creating a wonderful wall hanging. Choose a fabulous fabric for the chair. Try to complement it with a variety of fabrics with different scales and colors. I will show you how to incorporate large-scale prints in the borders so don't feel intimidated by them. We will work on balancing color and pleasing shapes in the fabric. Pick colors for the borders that are in the focus fabric and that will make the chair seem vibrant and exciting.
There are many ways to embellish your quilts. I will discuss using large-scale prints in borders, appliqués, embellishments, couching, painting and framing. It's going to be fun... strap on your spurs!

Mystery in the Woods
June 6 - 9, 2013
Our annual Morning Star Quilts retreat is fast approaching. Weekend in the woods is held at the beautiful Chalet View Lodge in Graegle, Ca. Our dates for 2013 are June 6 thru June 9. We start at 1pm on Thursday and stop at 1pm on Sunday. This is a 3-night retreat with all meals included; please call the store for pricing. Last years retreaters voted for a free sew and not a mystery so this is a great time to finish projects or start new ones. We do set a store up with basic notions, kits, fabrics, thread and so on. The possibilities for a great time on this retreat are endless. Great places to hike, golf is free, pool and Jacuzzi, massage appointments as well as pedicures, laughter around the fire at night, and many new friends to be made. We only have a few openings so call soon to reserve your spot. We also provide some mini classes throughout the weekend, and my favorite games with prizes!
