Happy Hexagons
This is another version of the traditional pieced hexagon block. Instead of using equilateral triangles, where all the seams end up in corners, the templates for this variation are kite-shaped with the seams in the middle of the flat sides of the hexagons. Kite hexagons are easier to use with setting triangles or other blocks to create a quilt top.

Fractured Panels
Fractures is a derivation (through at least 2 other teachers) of an original technique by Ellen Adams of Ayton, Ontario, Canada, as published in her article “Shattered Quilts”, Threads Magazine, February/March 1999. This technique is used with the written permission of her estate.

In this class, the students will learn how to cut apart and sew together identical commercial pillow panels or small quilt panels into larger pieces. Quick piecing methods make this version of Fractures go more quickly with less chance for error. Several samples will be shown for even more ideas of what can be done with these normally-overlooked fabrics.

Wedges & Stripes: Working with Wedge Rulers
A technique class based on the work of Marilyn Doheny, inventor of the 9-degree wedge ruler, students will cut striped fabrics to learn placement and positioning of the ruler. They will then sew their wedges to achieve difference effects. Rulers are positioned at a slant or vertically, with the design achieved by placement and movement of the ruler when cutting wedges. Techniques can be adapted to use with any type of wedge ruler.

Infinity Wedges
This is a wedge ruler class using Marilyn Doheny's method. With this class, students will learn to use the values in their fabric to create movement with specific wedge cuts. When sewn together, this creates the optical illusion of movement from one circle to the other. Wedge ruler required.
