Hidden Agenda Quilt

Join Instructor Lori Shortall in this new series!

Hidden Agenda is the perfect quilt for that very special fabric you have been collecting. With a variety of fussy cut squares, the pattern accommodates practically any fabric that you throw at it.  There are large blocks for the pieces that you just cannot bare to cut into, and there are smaller blocks that let you feature moments of scenic fabrics.  Hidden Agenda is perfect for panels as well.

Lori will walk you through the pattern and guide you in creating this one-of-a-kind quilt that highlights your most special fabrics. This quilt can be made with any combination of solid & print fabrics and using a variety of shades and scaled prints. There are no limitations, only your creativity! This workshop will also focus on learning the "Quilt as you go" method of quilting!
