Join Katie Pasquini Masopust as she combines her love of art and Log Cabin quilts in this creative class! First, she will guide you as you select an inspiration photo or painting. These Log Cabin designs can be made in square, diagonal, or wonky formats, giving a distinctive look to your project. Gathering the fabrics can be so much fun, and adding specialty fabrics is a great way to add some shimmer and shine. Cutting strips and doing simple, straight-line stitching moves along quickly, so in no time at all, this quilt top will be constructed and ready to quilt! Katie shows lots of quilts done in this approach, which provides ideas and additional inspiration. All the while, learn about composition and color value from one of the finest instructors in the industry. This is a wonderfully enjoyable class for beginners or experienced quilters alike.
