Seaglass  - A Unique Art Quilt with Allie McCathren

(and the perfect stashbuster)



There is no one pattern to make a seaglass quilt, and that's the beauty of them. Just like the pieces of found glass it's named for, shaped by time and water, each quilt tells a story.

 I'll show you how to combine fabrics from your beloved scraps (and not so beloved ones as well) to make gorgeous art quilts.

There is no one pattern or template set. This class teaches the technique of how to make these quilt, and walks you through the entire process of design, layout, quilting, and finishing the quilt. 

This class includes written lessons and videos. For the deaf or hard of hearing, all content in the videos is written in the text, with corresponding photos.
