About the event
This workshop offers an easy introduction to curved piecing. Each participant chooses a traditional block and sketches out a new block that substitutes quarter circle squares for half square triangles. We'll talk about design principles, quilt math, and explore secondary patterns. The class will cover strategies for selecting fabric, instructions for sewing curves with three different basting methods, and many tips for cutting and pressing that help your curves look amazing. Optional class kit includes tools for curved piecing. (Traditional quilt block pictured is Squash Blossom block in the Lanterne Rouge Quilt).
This workshop covers the basics of design development, quilt math, and curved piecing skills. Our focus will be on modifying a traditional block that uses half square triangles. and precise quarter circle squares.
