Denyse Schmidt: Cog and Wheel class



Inspired by a quilt pattern from 1902, Cog and Wheel hurtles us back to the industrial age with a playfully bold graphic that rolls right on any bed. Spend the day sewing with Denyse in this class where you will make your own version of her Cog and Wheel quilt pattern! We'll discuss ways to organize your color/fabric selections, and how to vary the layout of blocks to individualize your quilt. I'll guide you through cutting and piecing, and we'll have time to discuss how quilts reflect our culture and historic context.

Other classes for our Denyse Schmidt weekend include:

A Different Stripe on Friday, 2/7/20

Pure Improv on Saturday, 2/8/20

The Proverbial Quilt on Sunday, 2/9/20
