MODERN MOSAIC:  "AURORA QUILT " with Shelley Cavanna

Shelley has a unique way of creating the mosaic look in her quilts with a minimal matching of seams.  You will love the look and the style of her quilts and will definitely want to make more!

Learn Shelley's techniques, tips, and tricks for making these dreamy, mosaic-inspired nine-patch blocks!  Use her favorite Stitch + Flip techniques - and your favorite fat quarter bundle - to make a truly stunning quilt ... made simply!

Class requires purchase of the PDF Aurora Quilt Pattern found on her website.  Fabric requirements can be found on the back of the pattern.  

SUPPLY LIST / CLASS PREPARATION HERE

Finished quilt measures 60" x 75".


ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR

Shelley is a quilter, teacher, author, and textile and quilt designer who resides near Sacramento, CA with her husband and two boys. Her love of crafting was passed on and lovingly fostered by her Mom and Granny.

Shelley is a self-taught quilter who was bitten by the quilting bug in 2007 when she bought her first sewing machine.  She played around with classic quilt blocks and deciphered how to use pre-cuts to make them.  

With degrees in English and History...and quite a lot of experience with technical writing during the seven years she spent on staff at her local university...stepping into writing quilt patterns was quite natural!  She opened her first independent design company under the banner of Poplun Designs (the Croatian word for quilt)  and in 2013 decided to re-brand and re-open as Cora's Quilts.  The name came from her love for the book The Last of the Mohicans in High School, and it's a lovely nod to her Irish heritage and her love of historic novels!
