Make It Modern
Create a modern quilt inspired by traditional patterns. Choose one of the four patterns listed below for the class. This class is fun, fast paced and informative. Fast and different piecing techniques, plus layout and design tips are part of the class.
- Motherboard – inspired by the traditional Log Cabin block (top left in the composite photo)
- Patch Nine – inspired by the traditional Nine Patch block (top right)
- On the Plus Side – inspired by the traditional Nine Patch block (bottom left)
- Split Pinwheels – inspired by the traditional Pinwheel block (bottom right)
All patterns work great with precuts. The first three patterns are Jelly Roll friendly, while Split Pinwheels is Layer Cake and Charm Pack friendly. Kits for each of these patterns will be available for purchase in class, if anyone needs one.
