Learn traditional hand piecing while making contemporary quilts. This class is a marriage of traditional quilt making techniques with up-to-date patterns and fabrics. You'll learn marking, two different cutting techniques, easy-to-learn stitches, piece joining, block construction, unusual settings unique to modern quilts, and how to finish your quilt top. We'll also explore color, composition and design. Then we'll mark your quilt top and prepare it for quilting. There will be a discussion on modern quilting patterns using stencils, and a demonstration on marking and preparing the quilt sandwich. Students will complete a quilt top.
