Overview

Take two fabrics you like, then take a risk! Pattern-free quilting uses traditional methods but liberates them, creating spontaneous design in a structured format. Joe Cunningham guides you from simple ideas to the Wheel of Pattern, giving you options upon options to make your own unforgettable quilt. Joe tosses all the rules — even his own —out the window and shows you how to make a quilt based on your imagination. You won't stop smiling during this one-of-a-kind art quilting class with an instructor who not only welcomes but chases down the unexpected.

Go where your idea and fabric take you in this free-spirited approach to making art with fabric. Then spin the super-scary Wheel of Pattern, and watch Joe take three random ideas and turn them into a pattern-free quilt.
