Barbara Dann
Bellefonte, Pennsylvania

Who wakes up one morning, realizes quilting is her dream and passion (although she’d never quilted before), and buys a longarm quilting machine? Barb Dann! That was 13 years ago, and she’s never looked back. She loves the way Deb Tucker’s Studio 180 Design tools improve quilter’s piecing, and as one of only 2 certified demonstrators, can’t wait to share them with you in a fun and informative session you’re sure to never forget!

Finally! A tool and technique to quickly, easily and accurately piece traditional Lemoyne Star blocks in 10 different sizes! The blocks are strip pieced, assembled without “Y” seams, and pieced slightly over sized so each can be trimmed to perfection.  In the class you will learn the process and construct several different sized stars that you can use to make your own Constellation quilt.

Migrating Geese! They look like offset flying geese, but are built in a row as a braid rather than individual units. The technique doesn’t use any special ruler, and I absolutely love to use it in my designs.

Fabrics for Geese (medium to dark) 8 squares 5 1/4” x 5 1/4”. Fabric for background (light) - 16 squares 4 7/8” x 4 7/8”. 1 square (light fabric) 2 7/8” x 2 7/8”. (No rounding these up!!! This is a precision piecing technique.) Bring extra fabric. Please pre-cut squares before class. Along with your precut pieces, please be sure to bring with you the following tools and equipment: Sewing machine in good working order. Neutral colored thread. New size 10 or 11 universal, sharp or quilting needle, highly recommended. Rotary cutter and mat (they can be relatively small).
