Patchwork Illusions

Visual depth has fascinated artists for centuries, Karen developed a quick and easy rotary technique that allows you to make quilts with a 3-D look. 

Frankly, this is Karen's favorite class because it is so easy to create truly amazing quilts of illusion. She has taught this technique to thousands of quilters and you won't believe the amazing quilts they have created. 

This is an On-Demand class, you can go at your own pace. The best part, Karen right there with you, walking you through every step of the way!

For this class, you will learn to create these beautiful 3-D cubes.  I've also added some helpful handouts to help you as you work through the class.

For this class, you will need basic sewing supplies, fabric for the cubes and my optional template set available on my webpage here.   

You can order my gradated fabric lines which are perfect for these blocks on my webstore here.

Or you can purchase a kit which will include a selection of gradated fabric for the cubes, templates AND a Value Viewer, perfect for helping you select light, medium and dark values. Karen has an option for a smaller kit or a larger kit. You can see details about the kits here.
