Shaded Four Patch with Kirsten Duncan

Shaded FourPatch blocks have all the magic tricks necessary for making
scrap quilts that zing – smallish pieces, opportunity for light/dark interplay and the
best thing of all – a diagonal line. This allows the block to be set in countless
different ways creating many interesting secondary patterns. They also have
TRIANGLES. Little ones. Bias edges that stretch and wriggle as you sew. But there is
an easy way to make them that involves only squares and rectangles and in this
class we’ll use that technique and (best of all!!) we’ll have a SWAP PARTY while
we’re doing it!
