Enjoy the curves! – with my eye-popping curved braid pattern. I added a shallow curve to make this original template shape, giving the simple braid technique a powerful twist, featured in my book, "Modern Quilt Magic."
In this online class, learn from detailed videos and resources with all my construction lessons for this quilt – just like I was there with you! We will cover curved piecing, cutting and pinning for success, and handling the fabric bias, as well as tools to design your own unique version. Discover all the possibilities of this captivating pattern and make a dazzling quilt with interwoven movement and simple, graphic style.
For this class you will need my Curve Braid Cascade template which can be purchased here at vfwquilts.com. Or you can make a paper template which is shown in the back of my book Modern Quilt Magic.
Optional: my book, Modern Quilt Magic is available here and my Mini Curve Braid Cascade template (half the size of the original) here. A couple small pieces of No slip ruler tape are also useful in handling your template.
