About This Class

Using 2.5 inch charm squares or 2.5 inch strips, and some background fabric, we will make a charming centerpiece.  We will talk a bit about color placement and basic piecing skills.  This project still uses precut fabrics.  I will also cover quilting and binding techniques.  

Once again, there is a handout to use.

Let's get started!

Here is an outline of our class...

Will definitely make this. Simple, quick, looks like it would be adaptable to make into placemats. An easy gift! Thank you!

Welcome!  Fresh and Fun is the focus for Silly Mama Quilts of which I am the owner. This shop and blog was born out of a difficult time in my life when my brother passed away 7+ years ago. As a way to shower his wife and children with love, I made quilts and quilted projects. I so enjoyed working with fabrics and colors that they liked and were outside my comfort zone. I then became passionate about creating fun and fresh projects. The wide variety of fabrics and designers makes this an amazing job. I currently design projects for Melissa Ybarra/Iza Pearl Design, Tamara Kate Design, Carrie Bloomston of Such Designs, Alison Glass, Gina Martin Design.

The name for my business came from having four children who range in age from 12 to 29.  I began quilting when my oldest was two, so I have been enjoying this passion for a long time!
