About Patchwork & Pints

Patchwork & Pints

Spend the day with Quilters of all levels making a Curvy Log Cabin quilt. We will be giving many options on the different layouts of the Curvy Log Cabin Quilt that will give your own personal creative expression and meaning behind your quilt. We will discuss the history of the Log Cabin Quilt and its original purposes so you can incorporate your own special message into your quilt's design. There are rich meanings, purposes, motivations, and giftings that each quilt provides as it tells its own story. Because of the symbolism within the design of the Log Cabin quilt, the quilt you make with us will provide a symbol of your legacy that you can pass on to future generations of family and friends. We will add the curvy dimension to this quilting project which gives an extra element of flowing design. Come and make your own Curvy Log Cabin quilt with us.

This is a great project to sharpen your piecing skills. We will be including an amazing tool to achieve a perfectly squared quilt top as you built out your curvy Log Cabin design. This tool will help make the construction of your quilt easy to accomplish and pull your quilt together into your own masterpiece. We will focus on adding a border correctly to keep your quilt-shape plumb and instruct and work on binding techniques to finish off every quilt you complete.

What better way to complete a quilt for yourself or a loved one than by adding coordinating pillowcases to your quilting project! We have a quick way to use up your leftover fabric from your quilt project that will impress everyone. Your attention to detail will shine with your sewing skills that you will sharpen at our one-day-workshop. We are excited to spend the day with you at McMenamins Kennedy School

Kennedy school also features several restaurants; the Detention Bar, a theater, and soaking pool. It's time to treat yourself to a day of learning and fun. Maybe even a night of food and relaxation or sewing all night in your room at Kennedy School.
