102: Get Round To It
- Jun 10, 2017

Get Round To It is a new class. I've been exploring circles lately and I've really been enjoying combining them in different ways. I'll be presenting three kinds of circles to you for your quilting pleasure. The first is String Fan Circle, paper pieced from multiple strips of fabric. The second is a Swirly Circle, which involves curved piecing, (don't be scared). The third is a Checkerboard Circle, paper pieced from constructed strip sets. All of these circles can be combined into one quilt or used separately. I'll be providing a square shoulder and a hexagonal shoulder to use in designing the set for your quilt. I've made a few samples, but this is still a new class so we will be exploring this form together. Bring your creative spirit and be ready to share! I will provide patterns and instructions.
