Monday February 20, 2017 - Strip Your Stash
Learn to make dynamic quilts made from strips; your leftover precut rolls and fabric cuts are given new life! Bust your stash as you learn to make the Bob & Weave quilt or the Square Dance quilt. Both of these quilts are perfect for using up those larger pieces of leftover fabric that you aren’t quite sure how to use. Learn how to cut, sort, store, and sew strips to make a variety of quilts in two or more sizes. Confidently pair fabric prints, using three no-fail strategies: controlled colorway, distinct blocks, or scrap crazies! Whatever your approach, you’ll love stripping along with the popular pattern and fabric designer behind GE Designs. Gudrun Erla’s quick yet impressive patterns only look complicated.
Class focus is on two different projects from the book Strip Your Stash. Students learn the methods for both designs and have the opportunity to work on one quilt in class.

In the morning class session you will learn five different techniques from Gudrun's book Stripology Squared and you'll try out a few of the blocks. In the afternoon you can pick one of the projects to work on for the rest of the class. Choose from Locus, Matrix, Fractions, or Prisms.
