Rick Mondragon, Knitter's Magazine editor 2000-2017, has been knitting and sewing for over 45 years. His passion for color is obvious in his work, but underlying all his designs are technique, fit, and construction. He has been teaching for 30 years, offering ideas and insight for perfecting skills with needles, hooks, yarn, fiber, fabric, and thread. Rick loves the challenge of garment design and deconstructing and translating a pattern into words. With STITCHES uniting, he now has time and reason to explore deep into the fiber arts.

9052 No skills required Quilt-as-you-go Sampler
Here is a chance to sample quilting and piecing-AT THE SAME TIME-with the quilt-as-you-go approach. This sew-and-flip process is quick, neat, and fun.
Choose log cabin, square within a square, string piecing, or create your own design with Rick's clever insertion ideas. Your sample can easily become a cushion cover, a placemat, a wall hanging, or the beginning of a new quilt adventure. Rick will show an easy binding method and discuss ways to assemble the blocks into a larger piece as well.
Note: Sewing machines provided for use in the classroom. Batting and neutral thread provided for 18x24" sampler.
