What's New @ Cut Up & Quilt!

April Showers?

March was supposed to leave us with hope of spring, but it seems a bit like winter yet.  Never fear, spring is near!  

The April calendar is booked with classes, Charmed for Charity and CUAQ Therapy

This is a busy season for our long arm quilting.  If you are working on graduation quilts, you will want to get them in ASAP.  

Row by Row Design Challenge

Denniele Bohannon was our Row by Row Challenge winner this year.  We'll be making some tweaks and minor changes to make it our 2018 Row by Row.  We thank all those who entered into the contest.  It's so fun to get a taste of our customers' creativity.


We decided not to post the other row submissions and leave that up to each designer, as we want to protect your ideas. 

New and Current Block of the Months

Cadence Court is a fresh take on a popular Block-of- the-Month style quilt! This quilt book features a 12 unique wedge designs, each repeated twice, that make up a modern circular design. Cadence Court finishes 60" x 60".

Program starts April 16th
6 months:  April - September
Registration:  $10.00
Monthly Kits:  $30/mo for *6 months
Kits are available after the 15th of the month.

*Becky has condensed this 12 month program into a 6 month program so you can have it ready for Christmas.  

Our Cadence Court Block of the Month includes the Cadence Court Quilt Pattern and fabrics from the Foundations line from Sassafras Lane Designs for Windham Fabrics.  You will need to purchase printable foundation paper, freezer paper and Add-A-Quarter Ruler separately to finish your quilt. 

We are into the 2nd month of the Graphic Gems - Lapis & Emerald Block of the Month, but it's not too late to start. 

The registration fee is $32.99 which pays for your last month of this 9 month program.  Monthly kits are $32.99/mo. which includes the quilt pattern designed by Sarah J Maxwell and batiks from Marcus.  Kits are available for pick up after the 1st of the month.  

 Upcoming Classes

 Check out the classes/calendar page for a current list of classes and events.  It's always changing with new additions that sometimes don't make it to the newsletter. Just click on the class you want and register on-line or in the shop.  If it's full, be sure to add your name to the waiting list.  It helps our instructors determine if another class will be added.    

Looking ahead to April, May, and June... 

The Fast and Furious Club is going strong.  It meets on the first Thursday of the month.  There is limited space so reservations are required.  Kits are available for each quilt as you go project. 

Jean is teaching the Luggage Carrier Carry-On May 5th.  With a cutting class on May 4th from 5:00-6:00.  The specially designed sleeve on the back of the bag is designed to slip over the handle of your sewing machine cart or any portable bag with an extendable handle. A perfect gift for the traveller in your life.
