I like to work with one- and two-patch designs, and one of my most successful experiments started when I married my favorite two-patch pattern -- Drunkard's Path -- with my love of strip piecing. I was mesmerized by the combination of linear and circular patterns that emerged ... I was enchanted by these unexpected successes, but what hooked me on their usefulness in quilting was the fact that my students had such great success with them.

LINES AND CURVES: BASIC WORKSHOP

One or Two Day Workshop

Skill Level: Confident beginners and Up

Kit Fee: $37.95 for the Basic Set templates

This workshop is designed to introduce quilters to the Basic Set cutting templates and the Drunkard's Path block with its many (MANY!) variations. The Basic Set offers two additional pieces to modify the quarter circle of the Drunkard's Path block to offer endless design possibilities.

Construction methods will be discussed - piecing, turned edge applique, and fusing. The class will also explore construction and use of simple strip sets* and how they can push your designs to the next level.

When offered as a one day class, instructions will be given for students to complete their strip sets prior to class, and design and construction of quilt blocks will be the emphasis of the class. When offered as a two day class, the first day’s emphasis will be design and construction of strip sets using strips cut prior to class. The second day of the class will focus on design and construction of quilt blocks.
