This is a 3-day concentrated Westalee Ruler workshop. Registrations will be taken on a first come, first served basis, adding a waitlist.

 

The Retreat:

 

The Retreat and lodging will be held at The Cape Codder Resort & Spa  located in Hyannis, MA. Each Quilter will have their own 6' table in the spacious sewing room.

Adele and her helpers will be there the day before the Workshop begins to assist with getting your machine "Ruler Ready". The Ask Adele Shop will be open in case you’ve forgotten something or want to check out what’s new. You’re also welcome to sew till 9PM.

 

Monday, Day One – Sampler Set Day

 

Using the most popular Westalee ruler set we’ll explore some of the many designs possible with this versatile set of rulers. We’ll have different designs appropriate for every level of expertise. Everyone will learn new designs even if you’ve done this type of class in the past  We’ll also cover tips, new products and newer methods for ruler work in general.

 

Tuesday, Day Two – Discovery Day

 

We’ll all be using the most popular and the newest ruler sets available. There are some really great rulers coming out all the time and we will have many open sets to borrow. You’ll work through designs appropriate for fills, medallions and borders. You can elect to work on as many different rulers as you’d like or concentrate on a particular ruler[s].

 

We will also work with different Cross Hair rulers to expand our ruler’s options. You can also bring quilt tops to discuss quilting design choices and maybe work on that in the evening if you’re not too tired.

 

Wednesday, Day Three – Project Day

 

Today we’ll use all our knowledge and practice to create a beautiful wall hanging or tote bag selecting from some of the many designs you’ve done from the previous two days. We’ll also learn about the TempLee Reverse Applique method created by Leonie West that marries the use of her famous templates with the more traditional art of reverse appliqué. Then we’ll connect our chosen pieces with the SashLee joining method. This is a great way to quilt in sections keeping your stress about making a mistake to a minimum since it’s only a section not a whole quilt to re-do or change. Two great techniques to add to your quilting possibilities…
