Sophisticated Scraps – Your Way – 2 sessions – 6 hrs.
Do you have a quilt pattern that you have wanted to make and aren’t too sure about the fabrics? In Part I of this class, you will learn how to pick fabrics based on value, some quick cutting techniques, and how to organize your cut fabrics to make things move along, hopefully without too much confusion. You will have lots of time, then, to stitch up those blocks before Part II. In this session, you will not only be able to put your completed blocks up on the design wall, but we will be discussing different placements & how it can change the look of your quilt top. Supply list upon registration.
