Description
Beginner | 33 min
Taught by Heather Jones
This is a simple quilt with a strong impact. Heather achieves her clean, fresh design through strip-piecing – a shortcut where you cut and sew long strips of fabric together, then cut them into blocks. You’ll also learn how to add sashing. And because this is a lap-size quilt, it’s perfect for beginning quilters looking to build confidence and pick up techniques while creating a stunning modern quilt.

What you will learn:
— Strip patchwork piecing
— Sewing an even 1/4” seam
— Marking and managing quilt blocks
— Creating a quilt backing
