Learn to draw, color and sew each of the four types of spirals. We'll do Nesting and Baravelle spirals in part 1, Point-to-Point and Pinwheel spirals in part 2, then finish off with some basic design techniques for incorporating spirals into quilts. Along the way, you'll learn how to select fabrics by color, value, and pattern, and pick up techniques for foundation piecing that make it easier than ever. You will receive a pattern for a hotpad to make at home using your spiral blocks. Don't let the title scare you -- spirals are actually much easier than they look!

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need a copy of Simply Amazing Spiral Quilts for the class?
No, but we hope you'll get excited enough to want to learn more and buy Simply Amazing Spiral Quilts!
How do the live interactive classes work?
The class is taught on an online learning platform -- Zoom -- that allows you to see and interact with the teacher and the other class participants. At the scheduled time, the teacher and students will log in together -- everyone can see everyone else, so you can share work, ask questions, etc. You can view the class on a computer, tablet or phone (you may need to download the app). You will receive login instructions including links and passwords by email and text on the morning of the class. Please "arrive" online during the 30 minutes prior to class so you have time to get set up and learn to use the video conferencing tools.
Can I get access to the class after the live session?
The class is recorded and posted online afterward in a private Facebook group, so you can go back and watch the class again if you want to review it or if you missed it.
How do I set up Zoom?
If you watch the class on a computer, you will receive instructions for downloading Zoom at the time you log into the class. If you watch the class on a mobile phone, go to Google Play or the App Store to download and install Zoom Cloud Meetings.
If you need help, you might want to ask a friend, a relative (grandkids are really good at this stuff!), or go to a computer store or library. The teacher will be online 30-60 minutes before class begins to help get set up for the class. Once you've done this the first time, it's easy after!
Can I get help after class?
After class you will have access to a private Facebook group for people who took the same class. The recording of the class is posted there and you and other students can share your work. The teacher checks in from time to time to answer questions.
How long will I have access to the class?
The class ends at the end of the live video conference, but the recording of the class will remain available in the Facebook Group where you can access it.
