Event Details

Appropriate level: Confident beginner to advanced

Class description: Learn the secrets of large-scale piecing and constructing oversized blocks. Heather Jones will discuss the roots of large-scale piecing, the effect of reducing design elements and the simplification of the overall quilt design. Using Heather’s Fly Away pattern, students will learn how to increase the scale of both traditional and modern block designs, how to successfully manage large cuts of fabric and large pattern pieces, how to work with large areas of negative space, and tips and tricks on fabric selection, cutting, and construction methods for working in this manner. Heather Jones is highly recommended by one of our favorite QU teachers, Deborah Boschert! 

Please note there is a $10 fee ($2 off retail price) payable at the start of the workshop to purchase the pattern.
