In this class we will make the classic New York Beauty block with a twist, a block I created for the Modern Times Quilt.
You will learn how the different blocks are designed and put together, the way the different parts can be shifted and moved to change the look of the block.
We will sew no-pin machine-pieced curves in three sizes whilst playing with my Drunkard’s Path Template, a tool that makes precise blocks that are easy to piece together.
We will also cover all the stages of Foundation Paper Piecing using Freezer Paper- how to prep the paper, what stitch length to use, how to best put the block together and more.
The techniques learnt will give you knowledge and freedom to design your own version of the Modern Times Quilt
