Dinner Plate Dahlia Workshop 6 Classes

August 29, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

$75 – $400

In 2018, Quiltworx.com designed its fifth “Technique of the Month” pattern. The Dinner Plate Dahlia quilt brings together a wide-range of techniques for Foundation Paper Piecing, leaving students with the ability to move on to many other Quiltworx patterns once they have completed this design. Because of Judy’s dedication to teaching, she has also gone through the steps to provide training for our  Certified Instructors so they can provide training to their students as a  weekly program that includes consecutive workshops ranging from 6 to 8 classes, depending on the class structure. These classes will helpyou understand the process and steps needed to complete the pattern.

The Dinner Plate Dahlia includes many of Judy’s techniques for paper piecing, including cutting, stacking, chain piecing, curved paper-piecing, smart corners, the use of Transition and Registration Point (TRP) Lines, and our newest technique, curved strip piecing.

Join Certified Instructor Nancy Strath as she teaches this pattern in  a slower pace, 6 workshops over 4 months.  Every class you will start a new booklet learning new techniques every class., and as you complete them you will  join to the next unit, with the goal of putting at least one section together over the program  .
