About the Class
Take your quilting to the next level with this illusion quilt! A simple matter of angles and the play of lights and darks give this quilt depth and dimension. Easy shapes used in construction make this project much simpler than the complex design appears. Learn some of Deonn’s best tricks for easy Y-seams and odd-angled binding. Elevate your skills as you make your amazing new quilt! You can expect to complete 6 block variations in class that will serve as the blueprint for the entire quilt.
Choose three of your favorite colors, and select a light, medium and dark print in each colorway for a total of 9 fabrics; around 7/8 yard each for the large quilt, and 5/8 yard each for the small.
Deonn’s love for quilting began at age eight as she helped tie her very first quilt. She spent many hours in the sewing room with the women in her family, and eventually her own triplet daughters, who have become accomplished quiltmakers themselves. As a pattern designer, quilt-maker and teacher, it is Deonn's personal quest to discover and share time-saving, budget-friendly tips, tricks, and modern tools that simplify the process of quilt-making, especially for “newbies”. In addition to operating her longarm quilting business, Quiltscapes, Deonn has been featured in a series of How-To-Quilt/How-To-Sew tutorials and videos for Riley Blake Designs and QNNtv’s “Quilt It!”. She has been a “fabric influencer” on the design team for Riley Blake Designs, and shares those projects and tutorials on social media. Her designs have been published in Quilt Trends, Quiltmaker and Quilt Folk magazines, as well as a book, Fifty Little Gifts, published by Lucky Spool. Her most recent book, Ultimate Binding & Edge-Finishing Guide for Quilting & Sewing, published by Landauer, will be released next Spring.
