Intro to Accordion Sewn HSTs

Beth developed the Accordion Sewn HST™ technique to maximize the number of fabrics in scrappy half-square triangle quilts, but they can do so much more than just make a variety of HSTs. Learn the ins and outs of the process, the block making capabilities, and adding wow to your scrap borders, and be inspired to take the process to all new levels! You’ll practice with fabric scraps (supplied by Beth), then create a mini or quilt block.

Precut kits available in class ($8).

Instructor Bio:
Author, pattern designer and national quilting instructor Beth Helfter has one rule about quilting: it's supposed to be fun. With that in mind, along with her company motto of "Inspired Designs, Relaxed Attitude," Beth brings visionary designs and techniques to her patterns and exuberance and encouragement to the classroom.

As a mostly scrappy designer, Beth prefers to dig into her stash to create designs and patterns that appeal to her senses of color and value, using as many different fabrics as possible. Keeping to just a few color families in each quilt palette is one of her best tricks to keeping scrappy quilts from getting too out of hand, but allowing them to sing with tone and movement.

As a traveling quilt teacher, Beth?s visited guilds coast to coast and taught at national and regional quilt shows, and never tires of the ah-ha moments and banter of a classroom full of quilters.
