Abstract Quilts in Solids Course
Abstract Quilts in Solids by Gwen Marston
Using only solids, Gwen Marston offers many traditional designs that can be transformed into more modern blocks, making your quilts fun and relaxing to create. Sew traditional squares, triangles, and framed squares.
Recut simple blocks into wonky shapes that add up to quilts that are playful and interesting. Construct a Rail Fence with Gwen’s Liberated method that includes wedges and curves. Learn the fun of designing your own quilts using solids that bring out the best in these traditional-made-modern techniques.
Try her approach for sewing odd-sized and elongated triangles and add expressive borders that are stress free! Gwen shows how to make strippy quilts while learning about color and scale. She finishes the class by showing how to make string quilts that require no foundation piecing.
This class does not come with an option to email the instructor if you have questions, but Gwen provides complete step-by-step instructions that beginner, intermediate, and advanced quilters will understand.
For your convenience, this class can be purchased for online viewing or purchased on DVD.
