Play Modern with Gyleen Fitzgerald
It’s fast, it’s quick, it’s geometric and it’s free-style piecing with control. We will start with the thought of having fun and being in the moment. The technique is to use the Polygon2 Tool and Butterfly Seam to create a BOLD wall-hanging that shouts, "Modern" or "Contemporary". This workshop is about you.  Learn the Butterfly Seam technique while exploring design.
Basic quilt-making skills required: rotary cutting, piecing a 1/4" seam.
Note: Sewing machines provided for class use.
Materials fee: $45 for pattern, Polygon tool, and Polygon2 tool
