Panel Primer: How to Use Fabric Panels in Your Quilts
Are Cheater Quilts Legal?
What are "cheater" quilts? They're the lovely printed fabric panels you have hidden in your stash, just waiting for the inspiration to use them. Or maybe you passed one up in the fabric store because you didn't know what to do with it. Worst of all, you dismiss panels as "cheating."
Billie's Panel Primer class will show you how those printed panels are not only legitimate, they can be the inspiration for truly original quilts.
- Session 1—Inspiration: Covers the many different kinds of panels and ways they can be used. You will bring your own panel and design your project.
- Session 2—Perspiration: This hands-on session is devoted to planning the specifics of your project and cutting and sewing.
- Session 3—Finalization: Bringing it all together, choosing the perfect batting, backing and binding, and exploring options for quilting.
Supply list will be sent when you sign up for the class. There will be a $20 workbook fee, payable to Billie in class.
