Polish up your piecing skills and sew Monique Dillard's impressive nature-inspired quilt. | For links to the kits and pattern, look in the class Materials tab.
Meet Callie and begin by looking at the contents of your Canyon Creek kit. Callie shows you how to label your materials so you can keep organized as you go.
Start the Center Star block of your quilt by making quick work of the flying geese and sew-and-flip units, marking and sewing them at once. Then, find out how to accurately trim the quarter-square triangles to complete the block.
Callie shares her ingenious method for making half-square triangle units, without marking fabric! Plus, get her tips for sewing triangles and making pieced borders.
See how strip- and chain-piecing help the log cabin blocks come together quickly. The Canyon Creek design leaves some color selection up to you, so be sure to share your blocks!
Finally, create two more star block styles with some fun Center Star variations. See how the pieces for the Candy Twist come together. Then learn to use a Tri-Recs ruler to keep your cutting (and sewing) simple.
