CLASS OUTLINE - JUDY'S MAPLE LEAF

This class outline may be used by teachers who wish to teach a project using The Creative Pattern Book by Judy Martin. Individuals seeking guidance for self instruction are also welcome to use this outline. I recommend beginning each class with a preview to ensure that students will come to the first work session properly prepared. Feel free to tailor this outline to your own teaching style. I divide each project into sessions. Sessions can be planned for consecutive weeks or all sessions can be presented in a single all-day workshop. The outline indicates where you can find additional lessons and details in the book or on this web site.
 
Class Description: Judy’s Maple Leaf is a contemporary variation of the traditional Maple Leaf pattern. It was designed as the cover quilt for Judy Martin’s Creative Pattern Book. It shows off batiks and hand-dyed marbled fabrics beautifully. The asymmetrical Grand Block is easy to make and provides fun opportunities for Piece ‘n’ Play. Just make the blocks, then play with the way you turn them before you stitch them into rows. Piece ‘n’ Play adds an element of surprise and lets you make a truly one-of-a-kind quilt that is easy and loads of fun. The stem can be pieced, appliqued, or left off entirely, according to your wishes. The pattern is presented in twin size, but it can be easily enlarged to queen size. One or two blocks and a border make an attractive wall quilt.
 
Level: Beginners and beyond. This pattern is perfect for all quilters
