Learning objectives: 

In this class I will show you how to make a block I created for the Modern Times Quilt- the classic New York Beauty block but with a twist.

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 Templates, a tool that makes precise blocks that are easy to piece together.

We will cover all the stages of Foundation Paper Piecing using Freezer Paper- how to prep the paper, what stitch length to use, how best to put the block together and more. Although fussy cutting is covered in depth, using stripes to create striking effects, the blocks can be made with or without the fussy-cut stripes .

The techniques learnt will give you knowledge and freedom to design your own Cogs Quilt. This is a block based class and we will not be following a pattern. Off-piste sewing is highly encouraged. Check #thistlescogsandcaterpillarwheels for previous class samples.
