Here's some exciting news! Sue Ross is one of our very popular tutors at the shop. She is a former patchwork shop owner come teacher with an eclectic style matched perfectly with a traditional quilting base. This is the concept that makes us tick at Material Obsession. Tradition, with a twist. Quirky color combinations blended with stylish designs. When I post about Sue's class I am inundated with requests for patterns so....your wish is my command. We have put together a Sue Ross Block of the Month!!!!
One thing Sue does well is "pretty" with a dash of spice. For those of you who may want to play but not go wild we have two color ways to choose from. One is Contemporary and one is Pretty Contemporary.
There will be ten months in the program delivered to you straight from the Material Obsession shelves. Some traditional blocks look tricky but we are lucky to live in the age of tools so as we go along the construction of the blocks will be aided by acrylic templates that we make just for the program as well as tips from Sue. The templates are fun to use as they ensure consistent, accurate cutting, marking and sewing. (Personally, I have fallen in love with the first blocks presented and have been sneaking off to make them whenever possible!!)
Watching Sue's class this year has opened all of our eyes to new combinations of fabric and blocks.
We have stretched possibilities and learned to be confident going in new directions. The look is scrappy but elegant at the same time. The unexpected combinations give the quilts a grasp of honesty and authenticity.
So think about that and let us know if you would like to be included in this first time offer. What could be more exciting than a bit of colorful fabric and a fun pattern delivered to your door...except the unique and gorgeous quilt you end up with at the end! Enjoy for sure, tradition, with a twist. kathy
