Meet your instructor, quilting teacher and author Angela Pingel. Angela introduces you to a variety of pre-cuts, which eliminate the need to cut before you start to sew and make disappearing blocks fast and easy. You'll also get started on your first block and practice cutting and sub-cutting techniques.
Work with pre-cut 5" squares to create three beautiful blocks: a disappearing nine-patch, a disappearing four-patch and a disappearing diagonal four-patch. Angela shares tips for arranging and piecing your fabric with ease, as well as helpful design ideas for creating appealing color contrast.
Now that you've mastered the fundamentals, it's time to experiment with 10" squares! Cut triangles, then find out how to sew gorgeous pinwheels and hourglass blocks that look complex but come together quickly.
Pre-cut strips are a great way to infuse your quilts with color and dynamic design. Follow along with Angela to learn her tried-and-true method for accurate strip-piecing as you make a disappearing strips block and an eye-catching disappearing strip triangles design.
Double your fun with Angela's double disappearing blocks! Learn how the addition of just a little more fabric and one more round of cutting can transform 5" squares into incredible, dimensional nine-patch and whirligig blocks.
In the final lesson, Angela shows you how to turn your new skills into inspiration for future projects. She demonstrates the best ways to customize pre-cut color palettes, and shares techniques for transforming the blocks you've learned into an endless variety of designs.
