Level: Confident Beginner
A modern 180 pattern designed by Running with Scissors Quilters. By combining two contrasting fabrics you will create triangles tumbling down the quilt. This quilt can be made in six (!) different sizes from 13" x 13" mini to a queen sized 80" x 80"! It's your choice for the class.
The triangles are made using the V-Block tool - what was once a difficult block to make is now super easy. Before class prep is minimal - cutting strips and a few squares. And only two fabrics - this is a great quilt to use that fabulous print you've been saving!
This class includes step by step instructions and tips for using your V-Block tool, setting a quilt on point, setting triangles and mitered borders. Additionally, I'll share lots of hints and tips on machine piecing, cutting and pressing. And I'm including my favorite way to bind quilts. It will be a busy, fun-filled day with lots of laughs!
