Technique Sharing Workshops

Technique Sharing Workshops (TSW for short) are free, and currently take place during our Zoom meetings. These workshops, led or taught by our own members on a volunteer basis, give our members a chance to share, learn and practice various special techniques related to quilting.

The Home Page Calendar includes the 2021 Technique Sharing Workshops. 

Previous TSW handouts are available on the Blog under the "TSW" , "Patterns" and "Mystery Quilt" categories.

If you have a technique you'd like to share, please let me know! .

Many Thanks!

Mystery Quilt 2021 with Carole Behlke

Jan 1st, 2021 to Oct 1st, 2021

In January we will begin our 9-patch mystery quilt. The blocks will be made over the next nine months and then we will schedule a workshop/or zoom session to reveal the quilt and assemble our blocks. The quilt is made up of eleven different 9-patch layouts that are 9” finished. Most of the blocks are made more than once, but all blocks are a 9-patch. The thing that makes them different is the color blocks and background placement. The quilt will end up being about 78” x 102”.

Each month there will be one or two block patterns released and the number of each you will need to make. This is a great scrappy quilt! You will also need a background fabric – a neutral that reads as a solid such as white, cream, taupe, or black would work best. You will need about 5-1/4 yards of background fabric, or 6 yards to include binding. If you would like to get a head start, you can start cutting your 3-1/2” squares for the blocks. You will need 396 background squares cut 3-1/2”. The additional background fabric will be used in the quilt assembly. And you will need 351 3-1/2” squares from your scraps, or your choice of colored fabrics. This is a fun quilt to make and an easy assembly at the end. I hope you join the fun.

Feel free to call me if you have any questions.

Rhonda Denny's Community Project

Jan 1st, 2021 to Dec 31st, 2021

Please assist Rhonda in making some items for Santa Rosa Community Health.

August’s Challenge for the baby closet: If one is inspired to sew, the closet needs bibs. The kerchief is popular now. I took a t-shirt, cut two squares12.5-inch. Fold on the diagonal, pin for sewing, leaving an opening for turning. (When using stretchy fabric use stretchy stitch, zig zag.) Trim corners, turn right side out, top stitch and add closures at corners, snaps, hook and loop tape, or buttons. You can find these instructions below, or use your favorite bib pattern. BTW, I have been calling burp cloths “bibs” which could be confusing. My apologies.

Thank you for the tender loving care,

 Rhonda Denny
