The first block of this quilt wasn’t even finished yet when questions flooded my mailbox! “Is there going to be a pattern of this quilt? And a class? These curved seams look very nice, but also quite difficult and I would like to learn how to sew them!”
We will start this class with tips & tricks on how to choose your fabrics and colors. Each block contains 59 different fabrics, all randomly chosen, but matching perfectly in the end.
Later, we will sew the curved seams. With a clear explanation and some great tips, you will not have any trouble on sewing those curves anymore! Even though everything is explained calmly and clearly, some experience in patchwork is required for this class.
