Confident Beginner - Intermediate
About the Class
**Pattern $12 and can be purchased from the instructor when it's released
This class will teach skills in working with 60 degree triangles and jewel shapes, as well as how to successfully create a quilt using non-traditionally shaped “blocks”. It is a great way to stretch your skills with using color and composition in your quilting. We will create a large “flower” block in class, as well as learn how to complete the entire quilt, with tips and tricks for success!
Fourteen years ago Jennifer walked into a quilt shop expecting to
make one quilt and check it off her bucket list. Instead, she discovered a medium for exploring color, texture, design, and storytelling
which quickly eclipsed all other creative interests. She is an avid
quilter, blogger, pattern writer, and mom to 8 kids. Jennifer believes
that creativity is one of our deepest yearnings and that it deserves to
be included in everyday life. Her quilts are both an exercise in creativity and a search for hope and light in her challenges. She believes
that quilts will matter so long as we have arms to wrap around each
other. In addition to quilting, she enjoys reading biographies, writing,
spending time with her husband and children, and growing lavender.
She blogs about quilts and life at hopefulhomemaker.com.
