Eye Candy Quilt
Beginner to advanced
There is a new twist on a traditional quilt in town and it is fast, fun, and fabulous! Whether you call it Eye Candy, Buckeye Beauty or Jewel Box, this traditional block will become your favorite “go to” quilt pattern. It’s not magic, but you won’t believe how easy it is to do.
Plan your color pallet and pick a background fabric or use your scraps!
Come to class with your precut squares and let the magic begin. Using the Eye Candy Template is a snap. Grab a pencil, mark your fabric, stitch it, and cut it apart. You have the basic components of most traditional quilts. This is also a great template for a group project, such as Quilts of Valor, guild or friendship trades. Every block is precise and accurate.

This tiny little house is a work of art! It’s all about embellishing using vintage and hand dyed fabrics with hand embroidery. Susan will walk you through each step of one of her newest 3-D creations using fun and funky techniques! We will be using several different types of fabrics, such as hand dyed Cheesecloth, Silk/Rayon Velvet, Osnaburg and more! There is nothing more fun than stitching and creating your own little world atop a hill of fabrics and threads! There will be several options of houses, such as a winter house, a Tiki Hut for the beach, one with lots of flowers and more! It’s a tiny piece but so beautiful! This class will also be offered at 2017 Houston Quilt Fest. The pattern and partial kit will be provided by Susan for your convenience with the class fee. Little House Supply List
