Classes at Ryco in 2021 and 2022

If I decide to teach elsewhere or virtually, I will put a notice on this webpage.



I was so thrilled to annouce the new in person classes starting in September 2021.

But you may have seen in the Ryco newsletter on September 3 that Pat Ryan is closing Ryco as of December 1st. (Would anyone like to buy it???)

I will be teaching classes until the end of November. I tried to rearrange the schedule to fit in as many classes as I could.

I will miss teaching quilting!

These classes are at Ryco in Lincoln, RI ( You can sign up for these classes by contacting me through or by going to Ryco.


Class Payments

Students will not be considered registered for a class until payment is received. There are several ways payment can be made:

- Payment can be made in cash, check (made out to Judy Lancaster) or by credit card.

- Cash or check can be dropped off at Ryco.

- Or you may contact me at

Refunds will cheerfully be given for cancellations with two weeks notice. After that they are forfeited.

Sound Wave Quilts

I have created 5 quilts based on the sound wave patterns of my voice. The sound waves are made with strips of ribbon attached with iron on adhesive tape. The tile of the quilt is written on white ribbon that is sewn to the background of the quilt.

First choose which pattern you would like to make. The patterns are available at Ryco ( or 401-725-1779) for $20 each.

After you have completed the two classes, there is a third class available where you can use your own voice, and message, and learn how to change that into a pattern. The supply list for that class will be available when you come to the first class. The fee for this class is $10.

Sundays, September 12 & 19


Saturdays, November 13 & 20 from 1:30 to 4:30 - FULL


PhD Class

PhD stands for Projects Half Done. These classes are available for anyone who missed one of my classes or needs more help to complete one of my classes. If you have alreaedy paid for the class, there is no fee for PhD. Otherwise the fee is $10.

Please let me know if you want to be on the list for any class and what you will be working on so I can be prepared to help.

If you plan to come to a PhD class, you will need to let me know at least 7 days ahead so I can reserve a space for you.

Rippling Star

We will be following the pattern Rippling Star by Calico Carriage Quilt Designs that is available at Ryco. My sample quilt is the 70" x 70" lap size. The pattern also includes directions for twin, queen and king size quilts. The lap size is based on eight fat quarters; the other sizes are based on yardage.


Saturdays, September 25 and October 2 from 1:30 to 4:30 - FULL



Rippling Star OR 42 Fat Quarter Quilt

You can pick either. I wanted to add a class so more people can do these quilts. It will be 2 classes.

Saturday, September 18 from 1:30 to 4:30 and Sunday, September 26th from 12:30 to 3:30 - FULL


42 Fat Quarter Quilt

Here's a way to use fabric from your stash and a really good excuse to buy more beautiful fat quarters! The pattern is 42 Fat Quarter Quilt by Bella Nonna which can be purchased at Ryco calls for 42 fat quarters which would make a 80" x 86" quilt. I chose to make a 76" x 76" quilt using 36 fabrics. You will need pieces that are 12 1/2" x 21" from each of the 42 (36) fabrics which is enough fabric for the center squares and the french braid borders. I would suggest that you bring any scraps that were leftover from the 12 1/2" x 21" cuts.


Sundays, October 3, 10 & 17 from 12:30 to 3:30 - FULL


Hip to be Square

Use twelve fabrics to make this 68" x 80" quilt that plays with squares. Six of the fabric are featured as being an entire block each. The pattern is by Busy Bee Quilt Designs that is available at Ryco.


Sundays, November 21 and 28 from 12:30 to 3:30 - FULL


Star Attraction Quilt

This 67" square quilt gives the illusion of curved diamond shapes which are actually sewn with straight lines. The points of the diamonds continue out into the first border. We will be using Tri Recs Triangle Rulers to get accurate triangle blocks.

Sundays, October 24 & 31 from 12:30 to 3:30 - FULL


Drop Diamonds Quilt

This fun bright quilt by Daniela Stout for Cozy Quilt Designs can be made in five different sizes. I chose the 68" X 68" Throw size for the sample. I changed the second border on the quilt so I could use the leftovers from the strip sets.

Sundays, November 7 & 14 from 12:30 to 3:30 - FULL



Mystery Quilt #7

We will not be doing an in-class mystery quilt, but I was starting to design it before this news. I plan to set it up with a supply and cutting list and steps and pictures that I could mail to you through USPS for $20. If you are interested, make sure I have your mailing address.
