What's New @ Cut Up & Quilt!

Spring is finally here!

What gorgeous weather we are having now.  Tulips are in full bloom, the grass is a vivid green and the sunshine makes us happy. That's what May is all about!  

The shop is busy this month with preparations for summer fun.  The All Iowa Shop Hop starts June 1st.  The 2018 Row by Row Experience starts June 21st and we'll be vending at the Omaha Quilt Show June 21-23. 

More about the All Iowa Shop Hop

The magazines have arrived and they are flying out the door.  They are $7.99 this year, but if you don't want to purchase the magazine with the passport and several awesome patterns, you can download a free passport from the AISH web site.  

The theme fabric this year is vintage postcards representing Iowa.  The coordinates include postmarks of the cities participating in the shop hop.  Our SW Region is working on a challenge that will make it fun for everyone.  

 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.    

Jean is hosting a UFO session on Saturday,
May 12th. It's a perfect chance to work on finishing a project or starting a new one. 

Jean is starting a 2-part Twister Class on Thursday, May 24th with the 2nd class meeting on June 28th.  You can sign up for the afternoon sessions or the evening sessions.  

Looking ahead to June and beyond...

The Fast and Furious Club will not meet in June.  Our next Fast & Furious will meet on July 5th,  the first Thursday of the month.  There is limited space so reservations are required.  Kits are available for each quilt as you go project. You can join anytime.   

Kim is starting a new series of beginning quilting in June.  Make a disappearing nine-patch while learning or reinforcing the basics of quilting.    

Karen has added the Bitty Broken Lone Star Class on Saturday, June 16th.  Use Quiltsmart’s printed fusible interfacing to make this classic star pattern.  The interfacing keeps the bias under control, and you never have to cut or sew diamond shapes!  

Karen is hosting a UFO on Saturday, July 28th.  It's another chance to pick up an unfinished project, or just hang out with a group of quilters while working on a project. 

If you bought the Kaleidoscope Ruler Set and didn't get to take the Kaleidoscope table runner class, Karen just added another one to the August calendar.  

Karen made a lovely Layer Cake Bargello quilt. It is so stunning, we've already filled her August class.  But, never fear, she planned ahead and has another class scheduled for Friday, September 14th.
