< Workshops Workshop: 05-Monaco Magic

Create a fabulous quilt with all those odd bits and pieces that accumulate when you square up quilts, trim off selvages and cut odd shapes.  This block starts with a foundation fabric and uses a flip-and-sew technique to attach strips of fabric to the foundation.  There is no fussy measuring, no templates, no precision cutting, no pattern to worry about and my favorite part is no need to match!  A quick, inexpensive quilt that goes together in no time.

Come make this 36 block quilt in no time. Similar to the Spider web, this quilt uses many fabrics and builds the foundation on the faux sashing shown in this flyer as cream. You start with 36 – ten inch squares and flip and fold your way into this beautiful Monaco quilt. The best part…. No need to match! This quilt will be finished in no time.

Don’t have time to start this quilt? Okay, then learn the techniques and make yourself a 20” x 20” pillow!
