Barb Filiatrault

Barb is from Brainerd, MN and has been quilting for 20+ years, recently beginning doing her own long arm quilting. In her spare time, she enjoys listening to podcasts and solving mystery boxes. 

By day, Barb is the director of Lakewood Kids, the children's ministry at Lakewood Church. She works with children birth to 5th grade, helping them become faithful followers of Jesus.

Barb has 3 sons, Luke (25), Micah (23), and Simon (21). She is now an empty nester but her two kitties, Cali (short for Calico) and Tik (short for Batik) keep her company.

FREE CLASSES 

WISH I'D KNOWN CLASSES

These classes are offered each session for our guests who are interested in reviewing the basics and learning tips and tricks regarding fabrics, needles and threads, accurate measuring and cutting, perfect quarter inch, piecing and pressing, borders, binding, machine quilting or preparing your quilt top for the long-armer. Attend all, or pick and choose. No pre-registration. The schedule will be posted at the retreat.

QUILT CLASS - DREAM WEAVER 65" x 85"

This quilt pattern is called the Dream Weaver. Work alongside Barb, our quilt coordinator, to complete the 65" x 85" Dream Weaver. This twin quilt is the stuff dreams are made of! Using just a jelly roll pack and one background fabric, this pattern will teach the basics of strip piecing, careful seam matching, and color placement. This quilt is an excellent project for beginners to start with or more advanced quilters to play with. The result: a beautiful quilt to send a child off to dream land!

 

Fabric Needed

  • One jelly roll (pack of 40 - 2 1⁄2” strips)

  • Background ... 1 3/4 yards

  • Inner Border ... 1/2 yard

  • Outer Border ... 1 1/4 yards

  • Binding ... 5/8 yard
