The classroom samples and displays needed a redo. Redecorating needs to be done once in awhile.
Yesterday was the day!

On your right when entering the classroom...

"Snug as a Bug" using a jelly roll from the Moda line called "Karma". The original quilt is by Christine Sharp and Rachael Wright and is approximately 40" wide by 52" long. I found the pattern in a recent issue of a Fons and Porter publication. It is now available as a download on their website.

Next to it is....

"Tiffany", a Villa Rosa pattern using an older batik jelly roll.  The pattern is available in the shop next door, Piecing with Poppers Quilting Center. Any colorful jelly roll would work in this pattern.

By the ironing stations...

My "Limey Squares", is a pattern which can be found on the Missouri Star You Tube channel called "The Quartered Squares Quilt". It uses a little over a yard of any striped fabric. Sharon is running a class at the end of May, called "Triangles Fun with Stripes". If you are interested, give the shop  a call.

On the back wall, on the right...

"Rainstick", a pattern found in th Spring 2014 issue of Quilting Quickly.  This quilt uses 2.5 inch strips, 80 of them! I chose two jelly rolls by Quilting Treasures, the Matrix and the Tempations line to make this quilt. Sharon still has these jelly rolls available for sale in the shop.

And next, on the back wall, on the left...

"Sun and Sand" was a free pattern from Quiltmaker when I did the top a couple of years ago. It is now available for purchase as a PDF download from their shop. I used a variety of scraps and yardage that I had available in my stash. A fun quilt to do that reminds me of summer and the warmer days ahead.

A little bit of show and tell, and redecorating, to hopefully get your creativity flowing!

On the island, enjoying the warmer days
