Modern quilter and designer, Heather Jones, shares how easy it can be to transform visual inspiration into patchwork goodness. In this class, learn how to construct a bold and contemporary quilt block that pays homage to her favorite artist, Josef Albers, and his series of paintings titled “Homage to the Square.” This crisp design and easy construction allows for creative freedom, so you can scale your block to a different size, or have fun playing with unexpected color combinations.
Unfinished block will be a 7 ½” x 7 ½” square
Finished block will be a 7” x 7” square

- Precut fat quarters into specific dimensions
