Title: What in the World is On Point Patchwork?
On-point patchwork is something we haven’t done much of since we stopped making templates for all our piecing. It is NOT about on-point quilt sets but rather about pieced units set on point inside the boundaries of blocks and borders. I’ll walk you through the how’s and why’s of the problems we encounter with on-point patchwork and the simple math-free solution that now allows us to make all kinds of interesting blocks that our grandmothers made with templates. This is an information- and quilt-packed lecture---the ideas will open up all kinds of design possibilities for today’s quilter.
Workshop Date: Oct. 19
Title: Rainbow Radiance
Learn how to make this great stash-buster quilt using lots of prints and one cream solid for all the blocks. Since parts of the block are set on point, you’ll learn how to use the On-Point ruler so they fit perfectly with the straight-set parts. Fun to make in pairs of blocks, make your quilt as big or small as you want by making more or fewer pairs of blocks. Intermediate. All day. Machine piecing and rotary cutting experience required
Cost: $35 class fee
