SKILL LEVEL: All
In the Middle Ages, artists in Rome produced beautiful floors with marble "patchwork." This stunning design, based on Cosmati floors, is within the ability of any determined quilter. Paper foundation piecing makes accuracy a "snap" and a couple of clever "tricks" make sewing the corner easy. In class you'll learn the basics of foundation paper piecing, how to sew an easy curved seam, practice machine applique, and leave with all the techniques you need to make a true heirloom quilt. Don't let the "wow" scare you—you can do this!
