Everyone agrees that we quilters love fabric -- and the more we have in our stash, the better! And now you can learn how to take that valuable fabric stash and turn it into beautiful quilts that you'll truly love and enjoy for years to come!

Join Gyleen Fitzgerald as she takes you on a quilting journey that will change your life. You'll learn how to make order and harmony from that stash of fabric and how to balance bold prints with smaller prints and in-between prints. You'll understand how to group color families in a scrap quilt to make the project sing. As you follow along in this class, you'll feel empowered to turn to your fabric stash instead of heading to the fabric store when starting a new project!

In this class you'll learn how to:
  • Create a visually pleasing fabric "choir" with a soloist (focal fabric), harmonizer (fabric that bridges the soloist to the choir members), choir members (scraps) and stage (background fabric).
  • Recognize what makes a bold print work or not work as a quilt's focal fabric.
  • Cut scraps into precut shapes for faster quilting.
  • Organize your scraps so you know what's in your stash at any time.
  • Line antique blocks to add stability and longevity.
  • Use both precuts and scraps in one quilt.
  • Cut triangles, diamonds, hexagons, half-hexagons and cones with Gyleen's Polygon and Polygon2 tools.
  • Turn antique blocks of varying sizes into uniform-size blocks by adding borders and corner triangles.
  • Make an on-point square pieced border.
  • Calculate a float border to accommodate any quilt.
  • Make a pieced scrap backing for any quilt.
Class includes complete instructions to make three beautiful, exclusive scrap quilts: Hopscotch Table Runner, Paradise Dream wall hanging and Arrowhead Star Quilt With Pieced Border.

Difficult to follow. She bounces all over. Do not recommend.

If, like me you have problems using scraps because of color combinations, this is the course for you. Not only are there great patterns, the instructor has a method of selecting and mixing colors that makes it easy to overcome any problems.

I have just tuned into Gyleen's website and love what I see already--namely a quilt (runner) using the "hopscotch" pattern! Just what I was looking for--a little nostalgia from my 1950's childhood--playing hopscotch and jumping double-dutch rope. I am back in the quilting club and know which quilt to use for my next family heirloom. Thank you, Gyleen for your selection pick!

I really enjoy Gyleen's class. She is very knowledgeable and clear in her instructions. Its nice to take a class from someone who clearly enjoys her work. I have learned many new applications. I look forward to more classes.
