Description REQUIRED: The Shimmering Triangles pattern by Jenny Bowker is required, and students can order at https://soquilts.square.site/. Electronic pattern will be distributed via email by the teacher for students to print out. Join award winning quilter Julia Graves and make this gorgeous quilt that gives the effect of water rippling in a stream. It is a perfect pattern to showcase beautiful fabric, especially large scale prints. You will achieve the shimmer by applying easy to understand color and value concepts that you can also use to enhance all your future quilts! This quilt looks complicated, but is actually quite easy to construct. You will learn a quick piecing method for half-square triangles with perfect points. You will use Jenny Bowker’s pattern with an instructor taught by Jenny herself (pattern fee $18). By the end of class, you should have a design layout for your fabrics, completed several blocks, and understand how to complete your quilt on your own.
