This is definitely a quilt block where you need to be absolutely accurate in your rotary cutting and piecing as students will be working with 1″ wide strips. This is a template free quilt by sewing strips to strips; sub-cutting and then sewing back together to create the 12″ square finished block. This is a 47″ square wall hanging where 5 blocks are sewn in one color way, and the other 4 blocks are created in a complimentary color way. Once the blocks are sewn together, there is a large “open” area for hand or machine quilting to compliment the design. A scrappy “piano key” type border is added after a frame border to complete the quilt.

“Liked the technique and pattern.”
” Loved the class! Great tips!”
“Nice use of projector and having pieces to show. Was a good way to show where/what strip you are on.”
“It was terrific how she showed examples on the screen to show you!”
