ONLINE CLASS - New York Beauties - Feb 20, 27, Mar 13 - 2-3pm Eastern


New York Beauties are a series of stunning Flying Geese blocks created by the designer Carl Hentsch. At first glance, these blocks look extremely challenging, but once broken down into their constituent arcs, can be easily and accurately assembled. The resulting circle can be transformed into floor cushions, quilted bags or squared up into quilt blocks for outstanding quilt tops. Floor cushions can be done using leftover fabric from completed quilt tops or create a New York Beauty quilt from your favourite line of fabric. If you have taken the “Introduction to Foundation Piecing” with Carol Smith, this class is a good step forward and a fun way to practice your skills.

Instructor Bio: I grew up watching my mother sew clothes for all of us seven kids. Once I was able to reach both the machine and foot pedal, I was off and sewing everything that challenged me. After my first quilting class with Monique Bloomfield, I was hooked. I retired to spend more time quilting and two years into retirement began working at Taylor Sewing. With encouragement from Donna Taylor I began to teach a few classes. There is nothing more rewarding than to see the enthusiasm of participants when they create something they thought was beyond them and then go on to use their newly found confidence and skills to create something wonderful. I love to share my knowledge and experience as well as leaning new techniques and helpful hints from other quilters. I have a lot of work ahead of me clearing up my STABLE ?Stash Totalling Above & Beyond Life Expectancy.
