Secrets Of a Patchwork Pro – Johanna Masco

Secrets of a Patchwork Pro

Johanna Masko completed a sampler quilt comprised of 111 different 6” blocks, which were sewn in a total of 30 sewing sessions and used NONE of the provided templates. How? By using every piecing trick and Quilt Math formula she knew, plus inventing a few more along the way.

The “Secrets of a Patchwork Pro” workshop is a hands-on crash course in the technical side of patchwork construction, from recognizing the underlying grid structure of traditional patchwork blocks to the many ways to approach commonly used patchwork units. We will work on several sample pieces as we deep dive into the details that make the difference in creating our beautiful patchwork projects.”
