Class Calendar

  • REFLECTIVE QUILTING 2022
  • Join us for quilting experience to lift your spirits in the coming year and assist you in planting self care habits to nurture you as you serve others in your life.  Bluebird Quilt Studio will be offering a unique quilting journey with those who are looking for additional support through the challenges of living in and through the pandemic.  This is both a personal journey and a community experience and is offered to support quilters mentally and emotionally as we find our ways through the challenges of life.  Quilters are caregivers to their families, their communities and the greater world.  There is no charge to participate in the quilting instruction or for the free downloadable pattern that will be provided monthly during project.  It is offered in a spirit of helping those who do so much for others.
  • The pictures shown below represent the possible quilt projects that will be offered.  The top quilt is our new offering for 2021 and is intended for intermediate to advanced piecers, as the pattern is more challenging.  The lower quilt pattern is a pattern that was offered in 2020 and is appropriate for beginners to the quilting world.  Ihave included a few versions of the quilts that were completed in the 2020 version for your enjoyment. 
  • (Ladies, that group was a highlight of my year!  You are amazing!)

What is "reflective quilting"?

Each session will begin with a discussion related to the quilt block and the theme it represents.  A journaling and reflective group discussion will follow with the quilt group live on zoom.  Lastly we will discuss tips to make the sewing of the block go more smoothly.  We had quilters from across the US join us during our 2020 session.  Quilting together and discussing important self care strategies quickly stitched together both quilts and hearts and made abiding friendships within the group.    We would love to kit your project for you (and appreciate your business!) but it is optional to participate.  Blessings to you and here is to a happy, healthy 2022!  I hope you can join us!
