Shannon Fraser Workshop on Zoom

Workshop: Cloud Surfing Quilt
October 26th, 2021
10:00am – 4:00pm

The Cloud Surfing quilt workshop is all about getting comfortable with piecing curves. In this workshop I walk you through piecing 3 different sized oval drunkard’s path block variations that are featured in the Cloud Surfing quilt. By the end of the workshop you’ll have tried piecing your blocks with and without pins so you can decide which method works best for you!

Important: For this course you need to make templates and have fabric pieces cut before the course so please make sure that you have access to a printer and the time to make the templates before the class starts. 

Cost: $75.00 *includes Cloud Surfing Patter and reprintable templates

Materials Needed: For this course you will be able to make a lap quilt or a wall hanging. We will send out a Welcome package to participants which includes the fabric requirements, a schedule of the day and a cheat sheet to make it easier to keep track of your progress during the workshop.
