Ready for a fun and artistic approach to quilting?  Combine simple stitching with the drama of Ankara/African prints in your own unique way, for a dazzling effect we like to call "Organized Chaos"! The look is random, yet the approach is fairly deliberate, and easy to learn.

In this scrap-busting class, you will:

Use the quilt-as-you-go string piecing method
Mix and match the colors and patterns with confidence
Learn tips to simplify the block building process
Find out why Lisa incorporates upholstery fabrics into her quilts
Try two simple yet effective faux-binding methods
Discover at least eight more project ideas beyond the wall quilt. 

SUPPLY LIST WILL BE SENT UPON REGISTRATION - Please allow time to gather your supplies.

Of course, one key to the look is having a wide VARIETY of African prints to pull from!  If your stash needs a boost, try our jelly rolls, each with 50 DIFFERENT strips - no repeats, just lots of fabric:
