Having Fun With Miss Anna

Katy Prescott

Katy’s  will lead us in making a scrappy quilt the Anna Williams way-you wil improvise with scissors. 

The class fee is $35 for GSQA members and $55 for non-members. Keep in mind that membership dues are $20 a year. You can join GSQA and attend all the classes for a year at the member rate. 


            We will let go of matched points, squared corners and coordinated printed fabric—and just have fun “playing with material” as Anna said.  We will NOT make Miss Anna quilts, that has been done by a master.  We WILL be working in the way Miss Anna did.

            For the first part of the class, we will put away our rulers and rotary cutters and use only scissors.  Just like Anna did.  We will construct our own version of the main patterns that Miss Anna did. 

            The second part of the class will be using our rotary cutter in a free cutting method to design our own blocks.  This method will satisfy our desire to have seams that match but still very improvisational.

                Come have fun with your sewing machine and your scissors!



  • So that we will have a nice selection of fabric choices, everyone needs to bring a variety of sizes and colors scraps both prints and solids.  We will put these all on a community table for everyone to use.    The more you bring to share, the more fun you will have pulling colors to use in your project---also a good way to clean out your scraps.You will also need to bring 4 or 5 (at least) fat quarters for your use.  We will use these in the afternoon exercises.
  • Scissors for fabric.
  • Sewing machine in good working order.  You will be using straight stitching only.
  • Thread- white, grey, or black for piecing
  • Rotary cutter and mat.
  • Basic sewing supplies—pins, needles, thread nippers etc (whatever you  usually use when sewing)
  • A large plastic or zip lock bag  
  • Optional smaller zip lock bags for your projects
  • Extension cords for hooking up your machine if they are not provided.


There is a $10 class fee.

You can register on-line or by sending a check payable to GSQA, to Theresa Springer, 8338 Kahala Dr. Diamondhead, MS. 39525.
