Crossroads Freeform Piecing: Sujata Shah Workshop

July 11, 2023

September 16, 2023 @ 10:00 am 4:00 pm

a colorful quilt next to the words: crossroads freeform piecing: sujata shah workshop

Freeform blocks are abstract interpretations of traditional quilt blocks. How would you like to make quilt blocks without templates and marking, with as few measurements as possible?

See what happens when you let loose and embrace the imperfections and irregularities of human hands. Every block is different from the next, yet there is an overall harmony and balance to the quilt.

You will learn to trust your instinct and eyeballing skills to make a whimsical quilt with personality.
