Thinking Outside the Block: Step by Step to Dynamic Quilts
Contemporary quilts the easy way - no rules, just fun! Start with traditional blocks as Sandi Cummings shares easy steps to designing and creating your own artistic quilts. Next, move up to deceptively simple “transition” units that offer a bridge into the world of contemporary quiltmaking. Spontaneity and experimentation are key, so get ready to loosen up and have fun as you learn! 6 different blocks teach Sandi’s concepts - one step at a time. Easy processes include inserting strips into blocks, constructing free-form units, cutting double, and creating checkerboards. Learn to experiment with design and develop one-of-a-kind quilts.
