Who’s Afraid of ‘Y’ Seams?
Blocks and Borders and Sashing Oh My! Before the age of rotary cutters, quilters designed some of the most beautiful blocks around and a lot of them contained ‘Y’ seams. With the development of rotary cutting methods and the desire to make all thing simple, ‘Y’ seams went the way of the dinosaur. This class will help take the fear out of constructing blocks that our fore-quilters had no problems with. Blocks like the Baton Rouge block and other ‘Y’ seamed blocks will start appearing in our quilts again after you learn how easy ‘Y’ seams really are.

Whacky & Stacky With a Twist
This class takes the student through the ‘Stack-n-Whack’ technique designed by Bethany Reynolds, only with the addition of a secondary focus fabric placed to change the look of the basic pinwheel block to create an original design
