Dingbats Redux is a modern block based quilt with NO curved or set-in piecing. The quilt has two sizes of blocks, set into a generously sized lap quilt.
Skills: all straight seams, some bias edges, good 1/4'' seam accuracy needed, templates.
In class, we start with a fabric discussion, tuning fabric selections for the best results. Then we get to sewing, making one or two blocks for the day. We'll cover accurate 1/4'' seam setup, cutting with templates, stacked ruler cuts, tips for managing bias.
