Phew! I finished the last of my new class samples. These are for a series of four single-session classes that I'll be teaching this October at Modern Domestic. Each class will focus on a different block style and will cover a couple of different ways, both conventional and modern, of constructing that block.
Modern Cross Blocks will cover making wonky and straight cross (or plus sign, if you prefer) blocks. We'll also talk about using different-sized blocks in a composition and calculating size and number of blocks for bigger projects.
In the Half Square Triangles class, we'll talk about calculating sizes, piecing shortcuts, and a modern wonky variation.
The Dresden Plate class will cover the basics of making templates, constructing the block components, and different strategies for attaching them to a block base.
The Spiderweb class will cover the basics of making a spiderweb quilt blocks, including making templates and paper piecing in a straight or wonky style.
If you can't take one of my classes, check out my earlier sew-along posts about these blocks on Sew, Mama, Sew!. Note: The SMS posts aren't identical to the curriculum of the classes. In general, the classes will cover more or different material.
Hope to see some of you there!
