Taught by Heather Jones
Modern quilter Heather Jones loves to play with scale, and in this class she shows how to enlarge a traditional quilt block so that a single block becomes the entire quilt top. Heather demonstrates this technique by creating a 72-inch square version of the Fly Away quilt block, though this formula can be used to enlarge any quilt block you like. Heather takes you through the process of scaling up a traditional block design on paper, and then shows you how to piece it together to create a bold, graphic quilt top.

  • Scale up a traditional block design
