Advance Your Quilting by a CUBIT!
ThreadBear welcomes guest instructor Julee Coffman on Tuesday, August 19, from 10am to 3pm, to show everyone how to make the simple, but visually arresting CUBIT quilt. In this fun, graphically vibrant quilt, stripes and large prints combine to form an optical illusion a la Tumbling Blocks. The class is from 10am to 3pm and will include a light lunch.

The Cadence Quilt
This 60" x 60" quilt was the big hit at ThreadBear's booth at the recent Quilt, Craft & Sewing Festival in Albuquerque. "Modern"..."Different"..."Original"...and "Masculine" were all frequently heard comments. This Pink Hippo design creates a very striking effect using only four fabrics--the solid of your choice plus three prints from Carol Van Zandt's new Pop Rocks collection. Modern it certainly is: no repetitive blocks here but lots of negative space, created primarily by a truly boffo print (click here to see it) that changes visual density from selvage to selvage. However, a word of warning: we have already heard from the manufacturer that this fabric is already sold out and will not be reprinted. So if you want to make this quilt, order our kit here or give us a call at the shop--this one is too good to last long.
