Your eyes don’t deceive you—there are a lot of pieces in this quilt. Beth is totally honest: you aren’t going to finish it in the six hours you will be in class. But you’ll get an amazing start, and lots of piecing tricks to help you get through even the smallest seams. You’ll consider value, color placement, and fabric themes in the design, and you should walk away with several blocks and background sections finished. Alternate layouts will be discussed as well, since not everyone wants a twin size!
Pre-class cutting homework required. Pattern required, available for purchase in class ($8). Please pay this fee to Beth in class.
Beth's supply list
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.
