Striped fabric often gets relegated to the borders and binding of our quilts. What if we made striped fabric the star? In Stripes Yipes, we'll explore 2 different ways to use striped fabric to make complicated looking blocks. The morning will be spent with a brief chat about striped fabric, followed by learning our first method where we turn striped fabric into modern geometric blocks. In the afternoon, we'll take a second piece of striped fabric and turn it into sensational hexagonal blocks. Each set of blocks you make can be made into a baby sized quilt. You'll never look at stripes the same way again! Bring your own fabric; see supply list for details.
