"My Ozark Garden"
A wash of sun and shadow;
The flutter of bright wings;
A riot of hosta and cascading geraniums
and tousled asters...
      Monet would love it here!

"Ozark Garden" focuses on creative use of color, value and pattern to create a wash of sunlight and shadow around a secluded garden pool. The quilts you make will be uniquely your own in this creative two part series.

Ozark Garden I: Make a "Garden Sampler" wall hanging from the seven blocks of Part I or combine them with the seven blocks of Part II .

Ozark Garden II: The second class of the series continues with more complex blocks and directions for a larger wall hanging or full size quilt. Register now for both classes and receive a set of related patterns which may be used as the centerpiece of your full sized quilt or for a coordinating third wall hanging, "Hummingbird Heaven".

Skill level: The first lesson patterns are easy; later patterns are moderately complex. Paper piecing experience helpful, but not required.

Ozark Garden I: Four lessons, $30. Begins October 15.
Ozark Garden II: Four lessons, $30. Begins January 15, 2001
