Wednesday, April 22 & Thursday April 23 - 9 AM to 4 PM
Being able to add complex curves to your quilt designs is like being given keys to the universe. It opens up so many possibilities for creating new directions in your work. In this two-day work- shop, we make the blocks for a curvy-pieced quilt top. We start by translating simple doodles into the block designs. The line work is transferred to freezer paper for making the patterns. We then walk through the steps for making a fabric version of the pattern. The workshop also dis- cusses how to add curved elements to your quilts and continue confidently with curved piecing.
