We will be making a variation of the traditional log cabin quilt and also learning:
Color Theory- arranging your fabrics in a pleasing palette, value and tone.
Organization tips for working with many colors.
Using a freezer paper pattern
Getting the most use of your fat quarters (there will be no waste).
Using a design wall
How to measure for and add borders.
***This class makes a small quilt, but you will have enough fabric left to make a twin quilt top. Teacher has made directions for this and will share them with you.
***If you decide to continue the techniques on your own and make a twin quilt top, you will need to purchase double to suggested yardage for your borders and binding.
