Solar Flare Quilt Class

Solar Flare designed by Stacey Day radiates with Tula Pink’s True Colors fabrics in an exciting way. You will achieve perfect flares by foundation paper piecing this dynamic quilt. Susan shares easy-to-follow techniques for breaking down the pattern, cutting fabric, and guiding you through the foundation paper piecing. This beautiful quilt makes quite the visual statement with an easy approach that yields a dynamic and interesting finish.

If you are new to foundation paper piecing we will review the basics and practice prior to working on the solar flare blocks.
