Kaleidoscopes and More

If you've ever wanted to try a Kaleidoscope quilt, now is your chance! Carol McConahy will be here on April 28th to teach us the kaleidocope technique. Although she recommends the Marti Michell book and ruler, you can use any kaleidoscope book and 45 degree ruler you have. She will help you learn the versatility of the kaleidoscope block, and different techniques that work for you. There are some awesome designs ranging from a simple 2 color block to a "stack n whack" style. Come in and see the samples in the classroom, and get your creative juices flowing! Sign up soon - only $15 for the class, 10.00 to 4:00.

Sandi Schultz has started a block of the month called America the Beautiful. She has already had one month, but I'm sure it's not too late to get that pattern from her. The second installment is this coming Saturday, April 7th here at the shop. If you are a guild member there is no charge, but if you are not a guild member it's a $5.00 charge. It's a beautiful quilt with a variety of pieced houses, barns, trees, etc. There are samples of current and past blocks at the shop. Sign up soon, you won't be sorry!

The following Saturday, April 14th, is the regular guild craft day, with the project "Morley J Moose". Ruby is teaching this applique' wallhanging of a moose of a different color! Patterns are available from the guild, just ask at the Calico Cow - they are $12.50. He is so cute, you don't want to miss this one!

Welcome to the Calico Cow
