Artful Quilt Curves with Marni McMahan

Learn Curved piecing with an amazing Quilt Artist!

About this experience

The modern quilt world is vast and full of skills, we can keep learning forever- what a privilege! 

This one-day class will add some impressive skills to your toolbox, to allow you to express yourself through fabric and thread.

Materials included, and machines will be set up!

In this class you will learn to sew different types of curves confidently. You will leave with a handout to remind you of the steps we take, and a sample which can be finished as a wall hanging or table runner, or continue building something wild when you get home!

Every student will be making the same design, but you will feel confident in using the skills to make your own designs afterwards.

This is not applique, you will achieve these curves through piecing, which frankly boggles my mind! 

Scroll through the photos to see some of Marni's pieces, as well as some close ups of what we will be making.

Please note you will not be quilting the layers together, as that is a different set of skills!
