PANELS, PANELS, PANELS - Panels with a Twist with Albert Cote

THIS CLASS IS TOO MUCH FUN!

By polular Demand, we have added a 2nd class with Al Cote on Thursday, March, 2, 2017

Al Cote at The Quilt Store, March 2 & 3, 2017

Using three (3) identical panels of your choice, you will create a beautiful one of a kind art piece.  One panel will be saved as is.  The other two panels will be cut into strips and sewn together along with at least two coordinating fabrics of your choice (jelly roll race style with a twist).  Once you have a size that you are happy with, we continue the process again but this time with a twist.  Now we cut this piece in the opposite direction into strips again and sew once more in the jelly roll race style.  Not finished yet!  Now diagonal cutting and the strips are sewn on the miter. To finish we add this piece to the "saved“ panel and square it all up.  DONE!
