Class: All You Need Is Love
Once you've created this beautiful modern wedding quilt you will no longer fear curves!
This class introduces quilters to Louisa Smith's original Strips 'n Curves method, the Basic & Basic II cutting templates, and the Drunkard's Path block with its many (MANY!) variations. Taking the fear out of curved seams is the first step in making this quilt, so pieced and turned-edge applique construction methods will be demonstrated. The class will also explore construction and use of simple strip sets and how they can push your designs to the next level. A demonstration of double cuts and overlapping circles will be given and we will also do a little paper piecing.
We will start with a jelly roll to make a piece of strata (strip set). The overlapping rings are central to the intriguing design, but are surprisingly easy to make. While this class is project focused, it is also full of techniques for your bag of tricks!
