Spread the word! I’m teaching an Introduction to Foundation Piecing at Capital Quilts in Gaithersburg, MD on February 8 from 10:30am-1:00pm. The classes at Capital Quilts are very affordable, and I think it is going to be a lot of fun.
I will be teaching a Spiderweb block–something simple and achievable, even if you have never foundation pieced with fabric (or paper). Here is my version from the Sweet Celebrations Book–the class sample is in progress and is full of bright, happy spring colors.
Here is the class description:
In this class, we will be learning the basics of foundation piecing, or sewing fabric to a fabric foundation. The quilt design incorporates a traditional kite or spiderweb block with a modern aesthetic, including a variety of neutral solids, bold prints, and negative space. We will talk about color, design, and precision piecing as we work on the blocks in a relaxed environment.
The class catalog is here.
Also, if you are local, Capital Quilts is having a Grand Re-Opening Party tomorrow from 12pm-5pm. They have new and improved classroom space, and its sure to be a lot of fun. Friends, food, and presentations on 1st Quarter Classes from 1:30-2:30.
