Classes at Ryco in 2018

I am teaching these classes at Ryco in Lincoln, RI ( in 2018. You can sign up for these classes by contacting me through or by going to Ryco.

PhD Class

PhD stands for Projects Half Done. This is where you can bring in a project from one of my classes that you need more time or help with and I will be able to work with you. The fee for this class is $10. If you missed a session that you have paid for, this is a way to make up the class, and there is no additional fee. Just let me know what you are planning to work on so I am prepared and to insure there is a place for you. You can contact me at

Saturdays, March 24, April 21 and May 19 2018 from 1:30 to 4:30

You are welcome to come to any or all of these classes.

The Hexagon Card Trick

This table topper is approximately 42" wide and is made with a 60 degree ruler and a border print fabric. You could also use this as a center medallion in a quilt. Another option is to make strip sets to feature a favorite fabric instead of buying a border print fabric.

Earth and Sky

This 65" X 65" quilt has three types of blocks. The center has split curves, the outer panels are half square triangles, and the corners are four patches. By combing these, unexpected designs occur.

Four Square Float Quilt

The four square blocks appear to be casting a shadow while floating on a white background. Since this "61" X 74" quilt requires 80 five inch squares, charm packs are great to use. The pattern by Sarah Zimmerman was featured in the Aug/Sept 2017 issue of McCalls Quick Quilts. You can quilt this in one piece or quilt it as two panels and then join them.

Saturdays, May 12 & 19, 2018 from 9:30 to 12:30


Mystery Quilt #4

This 60" square quilt is an original design by Judy Lancaster. It is an all day class from 9:30 to 4:30. In class you will start off with a slip of paper that tells you the first step. When you have finished doing that, you will get the next step, and so on. This allows you to move at your own pace. By the end of class you will have finished the quilt top or understand how to complete it.

You can participate in our pot luck lunch - just bring whatever you want to share and bring your own drink.

You will have directions on purchasing your fabric and how to pre-cut it so you are ready to sew right away. This information is available at the checkout counter when you sign up or by contacting me (Judy) at

To the left are sample fabric cards to help you choose your fabric.

These are meant as a guide; you should choose your own combination of fabrics to make your quilt unique.
