About the Class

The original quilt was made with only 5 color choices. I used 13 fat quarters and love the way it turned out.  The pattern looks like there are two blocks to make but it’s only one. “The quilt blocks are 15” x 15” and create a fun, secondary pattern when sewn together.” Learn accurate quarter inch seams, half square triangles in mass, and pressing techniques to make this block lay perfectly. You could use your stash, or only 5 colors or many fat quarters. Your choice. Throw size quilt 53”x68”

Arrow Stone Quilt

Instructor

Rochelle Meyer

I grew up sewing with my mom, mainly clothing. I sewed clothing because I had to if I wanted clothes for school. I sewed crafts because I loved to! Interest in crafts led to quilting. As a youth, I made many whole top quilts by tying them. I made my first real quilt for my parents 50th wedding anniversary. I designed it around drawings my daughter drew of all the grandchildren. Most of it was made through trial and error, with a little bit of help from books and quilt shops. That was the beginning of my addiction. I continued to make quilts and to teach myself different techniques. As my last of 5 children entered high school, I tried to figure out what I wanted to do with my life. I had taught elementary school before and debated on entering that field again, but it didn’t feel right. The opportunity came to work for a quilt shop, and I jumped at it. Discovered at the quilt shop, that I could combine my loves of learning, quilting, and teaching! For the past 10+ years I have had the privilege of sharing my knowledge with others as I have taught machine classes, embroidery classes and piecing classes. I’m a proud wife and mom of 5 kids, all married to awesome spouses and best of all, I have 8 grandchildren that love to sew along with me.
