This is one of the most intricate quilts recently created. If you have signed up for this class you probably have seen our sample, the book, and/or the profusion of images on the Internet. It is made from rosettes constructed from five different shapes tessellated and repeated throughout in an extremely complicated manner. The process of construction, however, is pretty simple. It is English paper pieced (EPP) an old method which requires paper templates for each piece around which fabric is wrapped and basted and then whip stitched together.

In response to inquiries from several students, we are presenting a class developed by Judy Doenias years ago to provide a place where you can explore your creativity. Once a month for four months we will meet (if you love it, we can continue beyond that time). Judy will present a challenge for you to explore during the upcoming month and ask you to present your results to the class on the following month. It can be based on a quilting design (e.g. log cabin, etc.), it can be to explore a shape (e.g. squares, etc.), it can be to create your own design based on simple parameters, or anything that her mind can conjure. If you are ready and willing to participate which includes doing your homework, this inspiring class will elevate your quilting experience.

This is a quilt-as-you-go project made from scraps of printed fabrics into color families, half light and half dark. Because it is constructed on the batting and backing, it is completely quilted the same time that it is pieced. It can be used as a throw or hung as an art piece or, if you choose to make it larger, it can be used as a quilt. The finished size of the sample is 32? squared.

Looks complicated. It is not if you see it as a variation of a log cabin. Make this beautiful True Lovers Knot pattern with Judy Doenias, in one of several variations. This one is set on point, but can look equally spectacular larger with more knots or standing on its base. If you can cut straight stripes with a rotary cutter and sew accurate 1/4" seam allowances, you can do this.

This exciting exuberant quilt appears to be woven but is not. The pattern appears by the careful placement of squares and rectangle. The piecing is simple, so any confident beginner can accomplish it, although more experienced quilters will find excitement in experimenting with color and values choices. This is definitely a crowd pleaser.
