Take a look at this new twist on an old favorite, the Grandmother's Fan! This looks complicated, but it is really a fan block quilt that is formed by cutting wedges from a pieced “strata” of various color values. The fan wedges are then appliqued onto background fabric. The fan blocks created are pieced together to form this curvy eye-catching quilt. Lynette has adapted the original pattern to produce a larger block, and borders can be simply added to make this quilt a stunning feature on any bed.

Lone Star Quilt with Lynette: Level 2

This traditional quilt design is a perennial favourite that is now being made in a non-traditional method. Using the “Quilt Smart” technique that uses pre-printed foundations as the base, the quilt top is made out of rectangles, not diamonds, that are sew and fused onto the printed interfacing. This adds stability to the large finished diamonds, and eliminates the stretch of the material. The finished result is perfectly pieced diamonds, and easily achieved by the novice quilter.

Day & Night Quilt: Level 2-3 with Lynette

Day  Night

It’s magical! Discover an easier way to sew this dazzling block by sewing sets of strips together, and cutting them up into triangles with a special triangle ruler. Use only 2 or 3 colours with high contrast for blocks and you will be enchanted by your results. There is no waste as the leftovers are used in a wall hanging or table runner. The quilt top will be made in class and if time permits we will start on the bonus projects. This is a great follow up to the Beginners class. Choose from an afternoon or night time class.
