Learn important design fundamentals in this class while mastering Susan’s Dragon Bones technique. Play with squares, rectangles, triangles or diamonds and use insertion strips of colour to run across the fabric surface. Design elements of line, shape, value and colour will be studied and practiced and students will have the opportunity to test and use several additional piecing techniques. Time will also be spent trying out border, quilting and embellishment choices. This class will be an excellent addition to your quilting skills
Design variation 3 different options
Layer and fuse a floral or leaf appliqué design without bulky build-up by using a unique cut away method that produces multiple images. Students create a small wall hanging and then get friendly with all the decorative machine stitches they didn’t know they had! The technique is featured in Susan’s new book Accent on Angles-Easy Strip Set Quilts from Martingale & Co.
