Mod Flower Box Quilting class

Mod Flower Box 400x400Have you always wanted to learn an easy and accurate way to do curved piecing? If so, this stunning quilt by Robin Pickens is a great project for you! Barb will be sharing Robin’s method of curved piecing that Barb learned in a class taught by Robin herself this past summer. Robin’s method involves glue basting and trimming down the units for accurate piecing and beautiful results. If you are an advanced beginner or intermediate quilter, you will love this class.

The pattern includes a 51” x 51” wall/lap size as well as a 78” x 78” large quilt; and can be done with charm packs (5” x 5” squares) combined with background and border fabrics.  A paper template is included in the pattern, however, we recommend using the Creative Grids Circle Savvy Ruler for cutting the curved pieces.
