About the Class

This Fidget Spinner Quilt is a cute design by Kelli Fannin. It’s made up of 20-inch
blocks so you can plan the size of your quilt depending on how many blocks you make.

This is a great technique class because each section is made up of a traditional
snowball block, a half square triangle, two stitch and flip corner blocks and various sizes
of squares and rectangles. In class you will learn the most modern, precise ways to
make and combine each of these blocks.
Many different fabric choices make beautiful combinations. Create your fidget spinners
from your favorite retro prints or the newest batik brights. This class will be fun and
educational. We will cut the fabric before class so that we can spend class time learning
and sewing.

Instructor

Marianne Ballash

As a young girl Marianne loved doing everything her mom did and learned to love crafting and creating. She was knitting by age 5 and sewing her clothes by the age of 12. One summer between college semesters she spent the evenings at her grandmother’s house hand quilting with her. Marianne’s love for quilting was just beginning. Shortly after moving into her current home, just over 30 years ago, she was invited to join a quilting group. They would spend one evening a week gathered together quilting and learning piecing and applique techniques. Those mentors became some of her greatest friends. She’s been hooked ever since.
She has spent the last 30 years taking classes and meticulously learning new techniques and finding fun and efficient ways to make beautiful quilts. Recently she started creating her own patterns and projects and didn’t know she could love quilting even more! She is always looking for new patterns and techniques and loves every step of the quilting process.
Quilting isn’t just a fun hobby, it gathers friends and families and creates lasting memories! Marianne loves seeing her grandbabies snuggled in their quilts or her kids and their families having a picnic on a quilt she’s made! Marianne hopes that “Quilting with Marianne” will help others create memories and find their passion for quilting.
