In this one-day techniques class we will be exploring the Twice-cut drunkard’s Path in combination with multiple arches to create blocks with a checkerboard effect.
I will show you how, with the help of different template sets, designed by me or other designers, to cut and sew the arches (or Multiple Drunkard’s Path blocks), cut again and assemble into a Dazzling Roundel block.
We’ll be using a few different Drunkard’s Path templates, either in paper form or my Acrylic templates but I will also show you how you can use templates by other designers (like the Giant Nested Curves templates by Daisy Aschehoug of @warmfolk) to create this block.
The paper version of the templates used in class is included but, if you decide only the Acrylic templates will suffice, you’ll receive a 10% class discount code upon booking the class. The Acrylic templates are highly recommended for ease and accuracy, especially if you are a stickler for precision.
