Quilt Nebraska 2018 
July 26 - 29

If you are in the Midwest in July, consider attending Quilt Nebraska, the annual show for the Nebraska State Quilt Guild.  I will be teaching several of my most popular classes.

July 27, 2018   - Merry Go Round Class by Reeze Hanson - Kit Fee $25 (includes: Sizzlin’ Sixties by Anka’s Treasures, by Heather Mulder Peterson (pattern book) and From Marti Michell™ Small 60° Triangle Ruler)

Merry Go Round Quilt
Make a fabulous pieced hexagon quilt using a jelly roll. You will learn a simple strip-piecing technique, rotary cutting with a 60° triangle ruler, and super easy construction techniques. The project makes a great throw or crib size quilt. Use 2 jelly rolls for a larger project. 
Benefits of Class: 
• Hexagon quilts are popular but piecing can be tricky. This quilt has NO set in seams and is easy and fast to make. 
• Strip piecing and rotary cutting with triangle ruler are techniques you can apply to lots of other projects. 
• Jelly rolls are fun and fabulous, and this is a great project to use one or two of them. 
• In class, learn to do design placement, bias binding, and how to bind inny & outy points 

Supply List: 
• 1 full size jelly roll (40 strips). 
• Basic sewing supplies: fabric scissors, paper scissors, pins, seam ripper, thread, thimble, pencil and paper 
• Rotary cutter and (rotating) mat
