Quilt Design Basics Session 2: Block Basics

Using paper templates and colored paper shapes, I will show how just about any block can be broken down into a 4-patch, 9-patch or 16-patch and give instructions on how to easily determine the finished measurements of each unit and how to do the math for quick cutting purposes. I will also provide information on how to cut and piece both half square and quarter square triangles and how to create simple paper pieced or flip and sew patterns to use with unusual angles or complex designs.
