The Star Valley Quilt Trail is excited to welcome two outstanding teachers to our 2020 show. Tracey Brookshier and Carole Liebzeit will each host two different 6-hour classes, lunch provided each day. Space and sewing machines are limited. Lists of supplies and fabrics will be sent after you sign up for the class. Registration starts on November 1, 2019.
Beyond Bento Box with Tracey Brookshier
$50.00, Star Valley Community Center, Etna, Thursday, August 20, 2020
The popular Bento Box gets a makeover! 12 new quilt layouts and 5 block sizes expand the design possibilities of this classic. Construction is simple, allowing students to focus on the design elements of color, contrast and pattern taught in class.
Color My Sampler with Big Print Fabrics with Carole Liebzeit
$50.00, Afton Civic Center, Thursday, August 20, 2020
A color class featuring the big prints that everyone has but are hesitant to use. From Kaffe Fassett and Alexander Henry fabrics to large florals; that fabric you have collected over years will debut all at once in an exciting variety of traditional blocks. You will be introduced to 6 new blocks that allow your big print fabrics to shout out with joy! All the blocks finish out to 12 inches. This is a delightful exercise and you will love the sampler.
Sankaku with Tracey Brookshier
$50.00, Star Valley Community Center, Etna, Friday, August 21, 2020
Designed to show off beautiful panels or large-scale prints as in Japanese yukata fabric, Sankaku is strikingly graphic using high-contrast values. Concentric triangle borders have a math secret – the blocks in each border are exactly 1″ larger than the blocks in the previous border. This relationship continues for each additional border, no matter how large you make the quilt.
Colorful Stars! With Carole Liebzeit
$50.00, Afton Civic Center, Friday, August 21, 2020
Traditional star blocks made with quick pieced triangle squares combine with a variety of easy centers for a colorful quilt full of whimsy. The color wheel is explored to give you color confidence to take to all future quilts you make. The sample for this class uses a wide variety of pure bright colors, but earthy tones would work well too. A variety of saw tooth border sets will be introduced to finish your quilt.
