In this class, we will examine how the arrangement of value and color can create visually complex quilts from the repetition of a simple block. Students will learn how to create reusable freezer-paper foundations for precision piecing, and come away with the knowledge of how to apply this piecing technique to a wide array of quilt blocks. Ms. Faughnan will present a variety of simple shapes to choose from.
