Learn to design and sew your own original Baravelle spiral block. Baravelle spirals are one of the simpler types among the four Simply Amazing Spirals. They have huge "Wow!" factor, yet you won't believe how easy they are! Using the techniques in RaNae's best-selling book Simply Amazing Spiral Quilts, learn to create a Baravelle spiral block, plus a variety of ways to color them -- including double-spinning spokes. Along the way you'll learn RaNae's "painless paper piecing" techniques. A pattern is provided for finishing blocks into pot holders.
Note to presenters: This class has been expanded to include new designs with Baravelle Spirals. It can be taught as a full-day class or a half-day class. In the full-day class students will have time to design and complete the spiral block and we will have time to cover ways to set Baravelle spirals in quilt layouts and how to quilt spirals. In the half-day version students will design the block and sew the block. Some students may not have time to complete it in class. Please note that half-day classes must be scheduled for FOUR (4) hours, and special pricing applies.
RaNae's book Simply Amazing Spiral Quilts is recommended, but not required, and will be available for purchase at the workshop. (The basic information covered in this class is also contained in her second book Magnificent Spiral Mandala Quilts.)
Required class materials include preprinted foundations Baravelle spiral blocks, printed templates, sewing instructions and a pattern. An optional fabric kit is available for $10. Please see materials list for preordering information, contact here
