Thistles, Cogs and Caterpillar Wheels is suitable for brave newbie quilters and extreme quilters alike, designed by Jenny Haynes, internationally acclaimed modern quilter: PapperSaxSten

Stuck in a ditch?  Afraid of curves or color?  Putting off experimenting with new quilting styles?  Think again!  If you take this course, you will be inspired to think outside the box!  Let your creative juices flow, and enjoy the day (virtually) with your guild friends!

Jenny will show you how to make a block she created for the Modern Times Quilt – the classic New York Beauty block, but with a twist. You will learn how the different blocks are designed and put together, the way the different parts can be shifted and moved to change the look of the block. You will sew no-pin machine-pieced curves in three sizes while playing with Jenny’s Drunkard’s Path templates, a tool that makes precise blocks that are easy to piece together.  Jenny will also cover all the stages of foundation paper piecing using freezer paper – how to prep the paper, what stitch length to use, how best to put the block together and more. The techniques learned will give you knowledge and freedom to design your own Cogs Quilt.  This is a technique class and you will not be following a pattern.  Off-piste sewing is highly encouraged (e.g. creative, unconventional).  Check out #thistlescogsand caterpillerwheels on Instagram for ideas!
