I Spy July
Each piece in an I Spy Quilt is a different novelty print, and you and your little
friend will have a fun time finding and
identifying each object, animal or bug.
We’ve come up with a plan to help you
get a great start on your collection.
Come to PQW each week in July and
we’ll have a packet of 8 squares for
your collection. By July 31 you’ll have
40 unique squares! And every square is
cut a generous 8” so that you can fussycut and get just the spot you need!
There are many ways to assemble I Spy
Quilts, by using triangles, squares, or
hexagons (or umbrellas? . . ) and we’ll
show you 2 of our favorites on July 1
when your first pack is ready.
Each pack is $6. Reserve yours by calling us at 609-737-4321

Guilt Quilt”!!! All
you need to

traditional quilt, but the scrappiness
makes it uniquely yours. This quilt is
simple, scrappy and stunning. The piano key border perfectly compliments
the diversity of the fabric in the quilt
blocks. This is an advanced beginner

Private Class
For times when a regularly scheduled
class just won’t do, we offer private
classes to fill the void. Let’s say that a
class you're interested in requires rotary skills, and you’re still snipping along
with scissors. Well a 1-hour private
class will bring you up to speed. Or say
that you really want to get the hang of
paper-piecing or some other skill. Or
maybe our classes just don’t fit in your
schedule. Talk to any one of us and
we’ll find you the right person at the
right time to teach you what you need
to know. $25 per hour per person.
Collectors of I spy
fabrics (you know
who you are) need
a great project to
feature interesting motifs. This
class will teach
how you to fussy
cut your focus
fabrics into 4 and
6 inch hexagons
and frame blocks using the hexagon trim
tool. The second session will teach you
how to sew Y seams using this clever
tool. Required: Intermediate skills, pattern, ruler. Instructor: Arlene, $54, Tuesday September 23 and October 21, 6-9

with some friends, whether old or new.
Back to work, but who wants to face
ripping out that mistake? Don’t worry,
we’ll have it all fixed for you. Light refreshments are ready in the afternoon,
and by the time you’re ready to leave
you’ll be well on your way to a finished
quilt top.
The best part? Purchase your fabrics for
the quilt at Pennington Quilt Works, and
your Day at the Quilting Spa is free!! The
pattern, snacks, drinks, and any help
you need is on us.

given a supply list and some preparation instructions. Bring everything on
your spa day and we’ll provide the rest
of the directions, step by step, at the
pace you’d like.
