What's New @ Creekside Quilting?

We could not be more we are announcing our 2020 Block of the Month and I'm pretty sure it is going to be a BIG hit!

State Fair Samplers

Modern Quilts and Summer Fun

36 Quilt Blocks  

Pattern By:  Leila Gardunia  

This quilt was inspired by the quilt block tiles embedded along the outside of the Jacobson Center at the Iowa State Fairgrounds.

The patterns will be distributed on the second Saturday of each month with  Karen Thompson, who will be leading us with updates, tips, tricks, and show and tell  on each months quilt blocks! 

If you don't know Karen Thompson, she is a wonderful member of our quilting community. Karen has been crafting almost her entire life. In her words: "I made my dad a mud pen holder covered with glitter as a birthday present when I was very young. At least I like to think I was very young or I would have to admit I was playing in the mud at an inappropriate age. I learned to cross stitch and crochet from a very kind lady at church when I was ten and those are the two crafts I feel most comfortable with. My mum encouraged me in most of my crafting endeavours, but had little patience for my asking for supplies for new projects when I had so many unfinished ones. That trait has continued into adulthood, but now I fund my own supplies." She entered her first quilt into the "My First Quilt" division of the Des Moines quilt show after taking a beginner quilting class here at Creekside. She is thrilled to be getting a chance to take part (and lead!) one of Leila's BOM quilts and she "can't wait to embark on this journey with you!"

If you can't make it to the second Saturday class, then you can pick them up at the store, or we can mail them out to you, anytime after the second Saturday of the month discussion.

There will also be an opportunity to order each month's kit to make the blocks when you attend the monthly meeting.  

For the year of patterns and classroom discussions, the cost is $44. Yep!  That's right...$44 for the entire year of 36 patterns and 12 classroom discussions!  Register HERE
