Fee: $25.00

This class sure has been a favorite one!  Barb has taught it to over 530 gals since we opened the shop.
Once you take this class, you will never look at fabric the same way again.  You need only one fabric to
make the 12 different star blocks, plus a background and accent fabric.  It’s exciting to see how each block
evolves into a new design.  You’ll be oohing and aahing!  Just you wait and see!

*Orphan Train of Memories BOM - class 6 of 10

image

Time: 10:00am to 1:00pm

Teacher: Jackie Roberts

This BOM is inspired from the Orphan Train movement, which began in 1854 and ended in 1929.  An estimated 200,000+ orphaned, abandoned and homeless children were placed out from New York City by train and sent to rural communities in 48 states and Canada in search of new parents and new homes.  The BOM tells the story of a woman named Helen who travels as an agent on the trains. She helps the children get adopted, and follows up yearly with the children and their new families.  The BOM quilt is designed to represent how the many children all had a common bond and a story to tell.  Taking the many pieces and creating a whole quilt is a way to tell that story.  Each fabric piece is representative of a child, and when pieced together, they create a bond, making them a part of something much larger—a family.  We will have a movie night with popcorn for all quilters who sign up for this class.  See Wednesday, Sept. 28th.  Barb has read the book…very moving- certainly touches your heart!  We are using the exact fabrics from RJR that the patterns were created for. Kits available.

from peach - greens - yellow - teal - blue -all yummy, yummy colors.  Daytimers:  Barb’s responsibilities
