Quilting - This is NOT Your Grandmother's Flower Garden

The hexagon, a six sided figure often called a one-patch in the quilt world, has been a part of popular designs for over 200 years. In the early 19th century it was used in what was called a mosaic quilt. In the 1930's, we became familiar with it in "Grandmother's Flower Garden" quilts. Today this little hexagon is known as a "hexie".

In this class we will explore the hexagon, learning to use it in English Paper Piecing, which is trending now as a hand piecing method. We will work with the basic hexagon designs, and will add some of the new, "fussy cut" patterns. However, we will also learn to machine piece the hexagon, using a couple of different methods, in a few different sizes.

Enjoy learning to make any number of designs with these techniques. The finished piece may be anything from a candle mat/table runner to a pillow, or even a quilt. There will be time in class to do some relaxing hand piecing, with machine piecing accomplished at home using the instructions provided in class.

We will discuss materials needed in the first class.
