Christmas In July Table Runner Workshop via Zoom

Good morning everyone!

Well, it is a shaping up to be a hot and sunny day here at Watergirl Quilt Co. but that doesn't stop us from being excited about all of the Christmas and Holiday fabric that has been rolling in to the shop. We have 3 new collections and two more in transit, to get you thinking about Christmas. Take a look at the new arrivals for Christmas and the holidays.

We are super excited to offer you a workshop of a brand new pattern that is being released on July 31st and it is called Christmas in July. The pattern is designed by Susan Madu of Modern Blended Quilts based in Calgary, Alberta and Susan will also be teaching the workshop from her studio. Thanks to the technology of Zoom, you will all have a "front row seat" at this workshop and be able to watch close up as Susan teaches you how to make this fun and modern table runner. Susan will be able to answer your questions and look at your work station by you having a computer or device with a camera and a microphone.

Christmas in July

The workshop will be offered with two options; an evening class or a daytime class. It will be taught in two parts. The first session will be 2 hours long and will cover cutting all your pieces and prepping for piecing. The required ruler for this pattern in the Split Rects by Deb Tucker Studio 180. There will be some homework after the first session. During the second session of 4 hours, Susan will teach you how to precisely piece this vertical row quilt construction.
