Join Ellen for an introduction to sewing curves in several sizes, as well as using paper-pieced sections in blocks for crisp, precise results. We will make 8-12 blocks, and you'll choose your favorite 6 to include in this colorful quilt. The book we will be using, The Quilt Block Cookbook by Amy Gibson, is an invaluable resource for the intermediate quilter. In addition to blocks, templates, and quilt designs incorporating those blocks, Gibson explains the block grid system and how to use it to mix and match elements from different blocks to create the look you want.

Journey to Nebula: Bonus #2
- Dec 16, 2020 02:30 pm

As the anticipation grows for the arrival of the Nebula Block of the Month quilt, we want to help you use this time to get comfortable with the tools and techniques that you'll put to work making Nebula in 2021. We'll sew together through the end of 2020 with a series of tutorials and patterns to get you all set up for Nebula. The goal is to help you familiarize yourself with using the Hex N More & Super Sidekick (or Sidekick) rulers, cutting, & piecing shapes from the rulers. We'll work through small, approachable patterns together so that when Nebula hits quilt shops in 2021 you are totally ready to get into it. We'll have a class about every two weeks for each skill building pattern. These classes each offer dedicated focus with the rulers, shapes, and any sewing techniques mentioned. All patterns are rotary cut from fabric strips and machine pieced. They are precut friendly, using 5" squares or 2.5" strips, great for breaking into those precut bundles or stash busting. In this class we'll cut and piece triangles and half triangles with the Sidekick or Super Sidekick ruler.
