Road To California Quilt Show 2009

I get to teach two classes at the Road To California Quilt Show in 2009! Can you believe it? I'm soooo excited!! The two quilts are Pinwheels on Point and Quilt as You Roll.


Pinwheels on Point is the all day class I'm teaching on Wednesday, January 14, the day before the show actually opens.
This quilt features a Layer Cake (those 10" square packs) and additional yardage. I decided to use a Layer Cake because they are fairly new and, goodness sakes, what do you do with them?
I hope you agree that this quilt is a good way to do something with them.
Because Layer Cakes feature the fabrics from a specific line, they are all different. Pairing the different colors and designs with a single fabric in pinwheels is a good way to unify them for a quilt.
Deciding on a layout was fun and (lucky you), I have included a layout sheet in the pattern. That way you can customize the quilt with the colors in the Layer Cake you choose.
Speaking of colors and fabric choices, you can select a Cake Layer or use yardage. Both options are given in the materials list. The fabric line I used was Hemming House by Moda but there are many, many, many !!! other beautiful collections that will work.
Patterns will be available from The Calico Horse in Redlands (http://www.thecalicohorse.com/) after September 15, 2008.
If you have questions about Pinwheels on Point please contact me through this blog, the Calico Horse, or my e-mail seesuesew@charter.net.
