December 12 meeting -Beth Helfter “Oompah! Accordion Sewn HSTs™”

We are excited to have Beth Helfter of EvaPaige Quilt Designs for our December 12th meeting presenting “Oompah! Accordion Sewn HSTs™” You can see her fabulous quilts at

the Trunk Show is – “Oompah! Accordion Sewn HSTs™” What happens when you have a designer who not only wants to be as scrappy as possible but also hates wasting fabric? Well, all sorts of things, because that’s pretty much the definition of scrappy. But I took it one step further, and figured out a way to create HSTs that don’t have a twin, and waste no fabric, by sewing HSTs in “accordions.” Add another step, and you can sew the blocks for an entire quilt in individual accordions that come together almost like magic. It’s the coolest thing I’ve ever come up with (if I do say) and you’ll see the quilts from my book “Oompah! Jazz Up Your Scrap Quilts With the Accordion Sewn HSTs Method” plus a few surprise treats. You’ll want to pick up your accordion and join the oompah sensation!

As usual, the meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. at the Methodist Church, 18 School Street in Lebanon, NH.
