Tap into the timeless beauty of solids with this exciting class from Weeks Ringle. In the sample quilt, Fun House, choose ten happy solid colors and make the quilt along with Weeks. Like more color? Make yours from even more beautiful solids while you learn about hue, value, saturation, and the characteristics of different types of solids. Weeks constructs the quilt column by column and teaches you how to make your piecing techniques more precise, which will help with every subsequent quilt you make. Sew triangles, simple frames, chevrons, and easily pieced circles. The class pattern also comes with multiple variations and a coloring page so you can be inspired to create your own solids revolution! For your convenience, this class can be purchased for online viewing or purchased on DVD.
