In this half or full day workshop students will learn how to free-cut and piece strips of fabric into unique “sections” and then piece them together into a quilt. Pieced sections may also be embedded into a large negative space to create a abstract yet modern quilt. Class time will be used to learn this fun method of piecing. Full day class may allow students enough time to piece a small quilt top. We will use a portion of the time to discuss the various ways these pieced sections can be used in a quilt.
