Quiltstock 2019 – Are you coming?

It was sold out. But ask and you just might receive! Yes, it’s true, a second week of great workshops, beautiful projects, lots of laughing, big cookies and uber-retreating has been added! So if you thought you’d missed out – you’re in luck!

Session 2 will actually be first – July 31 through August 4. The teachers, projects and goodies are the same.

Where: The Magnolia Park Cities Hotel in Dallas, Texas.
When: Wednesday, July 31 through Saturday, August 4.
What: Three days of stitching, learning, being inspired, getting creative… did I mention cookies?
Who: Martingale Publishing and Moda Fabrics.

Who No. 2. Who is teaching at Quiltstock?

Lisa Bongean of Primitive GatheringsLynne Hagmeier of Kansas Troubles QuiltersBarbara Groves and Mary Jacobson of Me & My Sister DesignsSherri McConnell of A Quilting Life.

What No. 2. What will these Moda Designers be teaching – as in, what will we be making? (Kits are available for all of the projects.)

Lynne will be teaching her layered patchwork technique with this quilt – Building Blocks. This cozy lap-sized quilt finishes at 62 1/2″ x 74 1/2″ and it’s one of the terrific projects in her new book, Prairie Life.

Pineapples, anyone? This is Pier 44 and it’s from Sherri McConnell’s new book, Sunday Best Quilts. (Co-authored with Moda Designer and friend, Corey Yoder.) Sherri will share tricks for making Pineapple blocks using her favorite ruler. While it isn’t required, the results are worth the investment, especially since it can be used to make several different size blocks. Pier 44 finishes at 56 1/2″ x 64 1/2″.

I think you can tell by the colors that this is the project by Me & My Sister – it’s titled Ursula and it’s from Three Time’s A Charm. This super-simple charm pack quilt finishes at 24 1/2″ x 24 1/2″. Use it to make a pillow or table-topper, or add more charm packs and make it bigger!

Wool appliqué? Lisa Bongean, of course. This Snowman Stocking Wall Hanging is perfect for bringing a little bit of Winter into your home – without bringing in the snow or cold. It finishes at 24″ long and about 8″ wide. If you’ve never done wool appliqué or stitching before, Lisa will have you stitching like beautifully by the end of class. This project is from Merry Makers.

Just so you know, the August 5 to August 9 session is full and it’s not possible to switch places between the two retreats.

For questions – speaking to a real-live-person, call Martingale at 800.426.3126, Ext. 1378. (If you’re outside the US/Canada, please call 425.483.3313, ext. 1378.)

There are all sorts of other things planned… but they’re a surprise.

Cookies. They’re always a good idea.

I hope to see you in August.

  1. I realize that it would be impossible to actually finish all the quilts being taught… so do you take each class, start the project for that class, then bring it home to finish? Can you pick and choose which ones to make? I normally make baby quilts (NICU) so I would probably downsize each project, to learn the technique but not be overwhelmed by the size of the project (and weight of my suitcase)… It says 3 days… and 5 days… would like a bit more info on how it works schedule-wise. It really sounds amazing!

    1. Hi Pris –

      Yes! You take each class and start that project. Some of the projects were finished in class, or pretty close to it. For some, you’ll get a really good start on it. You will get pre-class cutting instructions for some projects, and there is also “Open Sewing” time. Down-sizing the projects is always an option!

      As for the timing, the first day is arrival, check-in, introductions, dinner and a fast, easy project to get you going. (And familiar with the sewing machines if you’re not bringing your own.) The second, third and four days have two “sessions” each day – at least one of which will be a class. The rest of the time is filled with trunk shows by the Moda Designers, demos of different techniques and projects, and open sewing. The last day is a morning class with a small project that you’ll finish, or come very close to finishing. Then it’s time to pack up and head out. Depending on where you’re flying-driving to, some folks left that afternoon, others left the next morning.

      And don’t worry about an overloaded suitcase, we will be providing a “shipping service” to get your goodies home. There are two box sizes and it’s a flat-rate fee depending on the size of the box. 🙂

      Fingers crossed that we see you in Dallas at the Magnolia.

  2. Oh, if you only knew how BADLY I want to attend QUILTSTOCK!! But I just don’t have that kind of money. Waa, waa, waa! Truly! Hope everyone has fun!! Is there a QUILTSTOCK FB page or Instagram account? Would love to be able to see pics of all the fun y’all will be having so I can cry each day — thru 2 QUILTSTOCKS!!!

    1. Hi Jan – There isn’t a Facebook page or IG account specifically for Quiltstock but Martingale and Moda will be sharing pictures. Martingale is on both – @martingaletpp on IG and Martingale/That Patchwork Place on FB. Moda? We’re @modafabrics and Moda Fabrics. 🙂

  3. I love the fabric & pattern Ursula…will there be a way to order this kit, even if I won’t be able
    To attend the sewaalong.

    1. Hi Ellen – While you won’t be able to order a kit for Ursula, you’ll easily be able to get the “parts” for it. The quilt is in the upcoming Three Time’s A Charm book – published this summer. It’s made with 1 Good Day charm pack, also coming this summer, and Bella Solids. 🙂
