Learn to draw, color and sew each of the four types of spirals. We'll do Nesting and Baravelle spirals in the morning, Point-to-Point and Pinwheel spirals in the afternoon, then finish off with some basic design techniques for incorporating spirals into quilts. Along the way, you'll learn how to select fabrics by color, value and pattern, and pick up techniques for foundation piecing that make it easier than ever. You will receive a pattern for a hotpad to make at home using your spiral blocks. Don't let the title scare you -- spirals are actually much easier than they look!
Class kit includes preprinted foundations, instructions and pattern.
