Free Form Cutting is Just One Thing You'll Learn

The Six Hour Quilt class focus is on the most straightforward and fun way to make a unique quilt based on your own ideas. Elizabeth Barton tried it out on two people who had never quilted before...and one who had made only one quilt following a traditional pattern. Here are some of the results!

They used free ideas and free cutting and had a lot of fun! Here is a short video clip of Elizabeth showing how to use the rotary cutter freely without a ruler.

Michelle (one of the students) says.... "I had to good fortune to be invited to learn how Elizabeth makes Art Quilts. It was a pleasure from start to finish. I learned about “color theory” and principles of composition to develop a plan for my first small quilt. Elizabeth gave clear directions and all the positive feedback needed to move from step to step. The process was logical and Elizabeth is easy to interact with and maintains a witty sense of humor. I never feared making mistakes. I consider myself lucky to have fallen into this unique opportunity to learn another creative medium."
