New Hallway Gallery Show!

Work by Fiber Artist Pam Moller

Pam Moller lives in Beloit, WI and exists to make things. She loves to experiment with designs and new techniques of applying color. She started learning to quilt in 2008 and her work expands to include dolls and soft sculpture as well. There is an emotion or story in each and every piece she creates; whether it's as simple as admiring a pot of summer zinnias on the deck, adjusting to a retired husband, a President disregarding science, some falling leaves in the yard or a design in nature that intrigues her. Some inspirations get into her head and won't stop nagging until she makes them, and we are very glad that she has. Pam’s work will be on display through the end of February.
After a week of snowstorms and the polar vortex, we need something fun to look forward to this weekend. For some fans, it’s Super Bowl Sunday. But for Blue Bar Quilts fans, it’s our Sunday Pop Up Fat Quarter Sale!

This Sunday only, with every five regularly priced ($3.25) fat quarters purchased, you’ll score one more for free. Plus, all books and patterns are 20% off!

Everybody wins this Sunday at Blue Bar Quilts!

Reduce, Reuse, or Just Don't Use

The January winner of our monthly drawing to promote reduction of plastic bag waste is Robin Hessefort! Robin has won a 4 fat quarter gift card.

Thank you to all customers who elect to use their own shopping bag or who just refuse a new one at checkout. It may seem like a small gesture, but never forget that collectively we can bring about change and have an impact on protecting our environment.

*NEW* Studies in Value & Balance

Instructor: Lorraine Torrence

Tuesday, February 19

In any good composition, especially quilts, there are many ways to balance elements and use values to best effect. If a composition has poor value contrast and is unbalanced it makes viewers uncomfortable and disengaged.

Lorraine will guide students through exercises using paper and fabric to discover how to use value and balance to create quilts and artwork that are dynamic and have impact.
