Schoolhouse Lectures “Organization and Use of Scraps” and “Creative Settings for your Quilt Blocks”

Event details

  • September 18, 2020
  • 3:00 am - 6:00 am
  • Boise Rigging Supply, 6750 West Victory Road, Boise, Idaho

Instructors: Maureen Stevens and Janice Black
Cost: $15 for both classes; $10 for one class
Time: 9:00-10:30 and 10:30-12:00

Schoolhouse is pleased to offer two classes in the morning!

Schoolhouse classes normally cost $15 each, but since these will be “mini classes” with limitations because of coronavirus concerns, we’ve decided that you can choose to pay the $15 and attend both classes, or pay only $10 if you’d like to attend just one. Enrollment will be limited to allow for social distancing (one person per amply spaced table). Please wear a mask, and use good judgement in determining whether for you personally the risk of attending is worth the benefit.

Both classes will be held in the upstairs training room at Boise Rigging Supply. To enroll, please send a check made out to BBQ (not Schoolhouse), as well as your preferred contact information, to Janice Black at 2303 Heights Dr., Boise, ID 83702 before Sept. 14th, specifying which class/ classes you plan to attend. If a class has to be cancelled or fills up before we can enroll you, you will be notified and your payment will be returned. Please feel free to contact me at (phone 208-340-7115) or Maureen at if you have additional questions.

Now, the classses!

Organization and Use of Scraps: Taught by Maureen Stevens at 9:00-10:30

Come join me as we discuss those bits and pieces that we quilters always seem to accumulate: SCRAPS! Maureen will have a trunk show of Scrap Quilts to show and we will discuss how to organize those scraps and some recipes for how to use them. Maureen will have a few handouts, but you might want to bring a notebook for notes.

Creative Settings for Your Quilt Blocks: Taught by Janice Black at 10:30-12:00

Have you ever finished a pile of blocks and wondered what to do next? Janice will go over several kinds of settings that can help tie your blocks together visually and add another layer of interest. You’ll take home specific instructions for some of the setting ideas, as well as inspiration! If you’d like, bring a completed quilt with a setting that you like, or a stack of completed blocks, for a “Show and Tell” discussion at the end of class.
