Retreat with Michelle
Join Michelle Renee Hiatt, of Sew on the Go for a fun-filled weekend! Come sew, laugh and be pampered, you deserve a ?me? weekend.
Michelle, Quilt Designer, Blogger and Certified Quilt Instructor will be teaching two of her latest designs; Moonlight Garden and Majesty Lemoyne. You can choose either projects (details below). Both projects come together easily with the Studio 180 Design?s (Deb Tucker) tools. Additionally, both designs feature the Lemoyne Star, without ?Y? Seams! That?s right, Michelle will teach you the Rapid- Fire method, which is strip piecing.
The weekend includes? (EDIT TO YOUR RETREAT) ? days of sewing instruction, Quilter Show and Share, plus a fun Saturday evening lecture. ? lunches, ? dinners, and ? morning pastries will be provided. Join us for the fun!
Moonlight Garden is an eye-catching display of Lemoyne Star and Straw Flowers set on a split two-toned background. The Lemoyne Star Flowers, made with Jelly Roll strips (2 ?? Strips) or yardage, come together easily using the Rapid-Fire strip-piece method. The split two-toned background amongst the Straw Flowers creates a magnificent moonlight cascade through-out the quilt.
Moonlight Garden looks great on any color background fabric, the split-two toned background works best with high contrast between the two shades. Moonlight Garden requires Studio 180 Design?s Rapid-Fire Lemoyne Star?, Tucker Trimmer III?, and Corner Pop?
Featuring Michelle?s newly created Majesty Lemoyne Star! Michelle alternated this fabulous Majesty Lemoyne with the first block she remembers her Grandmother teaching her to make, the Log Cabin Block. The combination radiates stateliness, especially with the Empire Border!
The Bright fabrics in the Majesty Lemoyne Stars and Log Cabin blocks are created with strips from various vibrant Fat Eights or Fat Quarters. This quilt could as easily be made with yardage, half yards or strips of scraps! The Background can be made with yardage or you may elect to go scrappy, selecting assorted Scraps, Fat Quarters, or Half Yards, that are in a similar colorway (white on white, cream on ivory, black on black, etc.).
This quilt is extremely versatile, since the entire quilt is made with strips and is strip pieced! No Y Seams! Majesty requires Studio 180 Design?s Rapid-Fire Lemoyne Star? and Tucker Trimmer III?.
