Molehills + Pickled Beets + Pattern Hacks with Latifah Saafir



In this brand new class, Latifah will walk you through new options and pattern hacks working with the Molehills and Pickled Beets patterns. We will give you the chance to play with either one in this class - yes, you have to choose. Both have countless possibilities for personalization and design. Latifah will show you many ways to add your own voice and all of her Pattern Hack techniques! Or if you fell in love with a cover quilt you can choose to pick from one of the cover designs

Well start the class off with a design period where well make most of the design decisions about our quilt. Then well dive right into learning about both foundation paper piecing AND curved piecing. It will be a fun, high-paced class chock full of tips and tricks.

Below is just a small sampling of what is possible in this exciting workshop!
