Constellation Block Workshop, Thursday, April 26, 6-9 pm
Skill Level: Advanced Beginner, ages 18 and up
Make your very own constellation block! In this workshop you'll learn tips for precision cutting and piecing a 20” quilt block. Please note that in this workshop we will focus on completing a pieced top. We will discuss techniques and ideas for finishing your block after assembly, but completion of that work will occur outside of class.
Please note: Students should have a basic understanding of how to use a rotary cutter.

What is an “Advanced Beginner” class at Modern Domestic?
You have a good handle on the basics and are ready to dip your toe into more challenging waters. You’re still fairly new to sewing from patterns and could use help with how to manipulate the pattern to get a better fit. You want to add some new skills to your repertoire (invisible zippers, setting-in sleeves, sewing with a serger, etc.). Classes generally require homework.
