Overview

In this workshop, we’ll explore the swirling, spinning world of spiral mandala quilts. Quilters of all skills levels are welcome -- beginning quilters will be amazed to discover how easy it is to design and sew these glorious kaleidoscopic quilts, while advanced quilters will still enjoy a challenge. (The designs are based on a variation of the very simple Twisted Log Cabin block.) We’ll explore color and value, fabric choices, symmetry, flow forms, positive/negative space and more. As we get down to sewing spirals, you’ll learn a few simple techniques that make paper-piecing easier and more fun than you ever imagined. By class end, you’ll be able to see how the finished mandala will look, even if you have only part of it sewn; depending on your design and the length of the class, you may finish your entire quilt top.
