This past weekend, instructor Alice Russell taught a Quilting class. She brought some samples of her quilting, including this beautiful quilt she recently created for the Quilts of Valor Foundation​ which provides quilts to heal and comfort our service members and veterans. We think that’s pretty awesome! Go Alice!


Julie Johnson and Alice Russell hold up Alice’s “Quilt of Valor”

Alice’s next class at the Folk School is:

What Can You Do with Fat Quarters?
Long Weekend • December 2-5

Create a Mystery Quilt that will make you wonder – how can it look so complex, yet be so simple and quick? Grab those fat quarters and learn easy methods for making frequently used blocks. Then arrange them to create a quilt top, uniquely yours. With guidance on how to do final quilting at home, finish for a lap-size throw or twin quilt. Open to students of all levels who can operate a sewing machine.
