Hexagon Come to Portland for Quiltmaker Classes

Go beyond basic shapes—try something new with Easy Hex taught by Gudrun Erla. Great potential for wonderful scrap quilts when you use a 60º ruler and Gudrun’s techniques for hexagon quilts. The quilt has two versions, the split and the scrambled version. Choose from different sizes of each version. Learn the construction of the triangle blocks into hexagons, cutting with the triangle ruler and choosing your layouts. Quilt is Fat Quarter Friendly and appropriate for experienced beginners and intermediate skill level.

I still love writing about quilt-related topics for Quilty Pleasures, and I always have my finger on the pulse of the quilting world. I teach a variety of quilt classes and give guild programs, too.
