Are you ready for a new challenge? MODERN CHAIN is a fresh take on the traditional Irish Chain quilt pattern and is next up in the quilting series. At first glance, this delicate two-tone chain design on a vast solid background appears to be complex, but is actually wickedly easy to put together—and satisfying! Join us for this six week course to continue essential quilt skill building and learn best practices to demystify the CHAIN. This quilt is designed for the confident beginner (that means a quilt or two already under your belt) or the seasoned quilter! This isn’t a typical quilting class or cookie cutter quilt pattern. Choose seasonal or everyday fabrics for your version. MODERN CHAIN will be unique to you and you’ll step away with the necessary skills and helpful reference material that you can revisit for your next quilting project. Visit the shoppe to see the inspiration sample. Class seats are limited.
