Join Linda April 3-5, 2024 for a Laura Heine Collage Quilting Retreat.  As a certified Laura Heine instructor, she will share Laura’s collage quilting process and techniques for a beautiful collage quilt. You will choose your pattern. Laura’s quilts are creative, whimsical, and fun to create. You will have the whole weekend to create, and finish your quilt.

You may purchase these at your favorite quilt shop. There are only five openings for this class. Register today!

*New *  Youth Collage Quilting  March 28

Introduce your child, grandchild, niece, nephew, friend, to collage quilting. Putting the collage together is no sew. It is a great beginner project to introduce them to a type of quilting, giving them the freedom to create without mistakes. This is a Thursday, during our local school districts spring break, 12:30-4:30, at Seamless Getaways. Register here.


*New *         One Block Wonder with Gloria, June 21-23

You will love this unusual method of designing and creating quilts.  Instead of starting with a particular pattern or design and then trying to find fabric that will fit that pattern, this approach begins with the fabric or panels:  the fabric/panel is the key element.  Kaleidoscope blocks – each one unique – are produced by aligning the printed design on several layers of fabric/panels and then cutting and sewing triangles together.  Just as the mirrors in a kaleidoscope reflect and repeat an image, each triangle repeats color and pattern to create a new design for each block.  Once all the blocks are made, you begin to design your quilt. Join us at Seamless Getaways and to begin this fun-filled adventure.  It is so much fun twirling each triangle to see what kaleidoscope we have and what design we come up with.  The sky is the limit!

Gloria, is an award winning quilter/teacher from Top Shelf Quilts in Mokena, IL, with 50 years of sewing/quilting experience. She will walk you through creating this show stopping quilt!
