Introductory Exploration of Woven Quilting
with Brenda Gagne
Years ago, I purchased the book “Simply Stunning Woven Quilts” by Anna Faustino, and began playing with the concept of woven quilting. This technique is a great way to use abandoned blocks and/or assemble blocks from scraps that set a seasonal tone. In this class you will make two blocks then weave them using the techniques from the book to create a background. Go to www.nobleadulted.org for a list of materials and tools.
