Blue Ridge Love

Blue Ridge Love with Angela Huffman

Specific Technique(s) Taught: The use of modified strip sets, machine applique, non-mirrored hourglass units, floating borders
Workshop Skill Level: All levels
Prerequisites: None

The traditional, delectable mountains block is trimmed in a clever way to result in square units that can spin and bloom into captivating blocks. This wall-hanging is a smaller version of the original that was featured on the Love of Quilting PBS show and in the Love of Quilting magazine. It was made to celebrate Angela’s recent wedding in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina!

You’ll love seeing the large version as you put the techniques to use to make this wall-hanging version (52” x 52”). Learn the fast-track method to create and modify the block in two colorways. A simple flippy corner and a curve using machine applique transform this quilt with eye-popping results. The outside border is impressive but incredibly easy, as simple color placement allows it to float as it frames out the striking center! All fabric will be provided by Maywood Studio
