Robin Pickens
Curved Piecing with Mod Flower Box or Beanstalk

For people new to curves, starting with a quarter circle is easier than half or full circles. Robin shows how she uses a paper template or the circle Savvy Ruler (CGRSAV1) from Creative Grids to make curves.  Class shows pinning vs gluing techniques and exploring options for layouts and variations on the quilts.  Select either the Beanstalk or Mod Flower Box pattern for your class project in the lap/wall size.  The patterns can be applied to larger sized bed quilts. Participants need to purchase pattern.
