I’ve added a new workshop to my offerings! You can download my complete workshop descriptions here: Carole Lyles Shaw Workshops
In 2016, I was invited to create a block for the Cloud 9 New Block Blog Hop. The block size was small but I decided that the process had a lot of potential. Here’s the original block.
It was so much fun to make this block that I decided to take the idea and upscale the original block to make a mini quilt! I named it MidCentury Modern Quilt #1. Each quilt block you make using this process will be unique and exciting. The block looks like it’s made with intricate piecing–but the secret is that after you sew the curves, all of the piecing is simple straight lines!
After I made this mini quilt, I decided to create a brand new workshop.
This is a super fun mini-quilt project that can be completed in a full day (or started in a half-day workshop).
I’ll demonstrate a couple of alternatives for the improvisational cutting and piecing such as using diagonals or even another curve!
In the workshop, I’ll also give you alternatives for making a large version of this quilt by making multiple blocks using the same process.
You’ll learn how to piece a quarter circle curve without templates or pinning. You’ll also practice improvisational cutting and piecing.
