Happy Together Quilt Top Construction Class



HAPPY TOGETHER

2021

What an appropriate title for our first in person class together!

The HAPPY TOGETHER quilt has many possibilities and is fun. Make as many blocks as you would like for a quilt or just one block for a wall hanging. The sample is made from 9 blocks and the pattern will make 18. The background can be different colors or all one color. The blocks are approximately 14” wide and various lengths. We will focus heavily on using the Wonder Curve Ruler. It is not difficult at all.

Join us and have fun making these happy little people.

Instructor: Helen Abernathy
Instructor Bio: Although I originally hail from the coast of NC, I consider myself a real Floridian after living here for the past 46 years. I began sewing at four years old by making dolly clothes on my little hand cranked Singer. I made most of my clothes through high school and college and even sold a few. They looked quite professional I must say. I?m a retired elementary school teacher and principal. I love retirement! I have so much more time for sewing and time with family/friends. I made my first quilt in high school, and it was awful. It went to the trash or Goodwill a few years ago. I tried again in the early 2000?s and finally decided it was time to take a lesson or two at a friend?s suggestion. I was hooked. I took all kinds of classes at different shops locally and a bit north of here. Now I have quite a stash and tons of rulers which I enjoy using, I worked at local quilt shop for a couple of years and found my love - teaching classes and bright colors. I enjoy foundation paper piecing, piecing, applique, machine and hand embroidery, needle turn and English Paper Piecing. Finally, I?m so fortunate to have a very patient husband who supports my obsession.
