Patchwork Illusions & More Patchwork Illusions class examples
Several years ago, I taught at Cedar Lakes in West Virginia. I was able to teach a 4-day class called Patchwork Illusions. The students learned how to create patchwork cubes, made from simple rotary templates. They went on to create some wonderful designs!
I've also included some photos from my classes at Quilting Adventures. . .Hill Country Style. It was a wonderful retreat and I taught a 5 day class called Quilting Illusions. We had a great time and the students created some fantastic quilts.
You can learn to make cubes like this by taking my classes "Patchwork Illusions" and "More Patchwork Illusions." Check my schedule page , I might be coming to your guild. If not, you can take can take these classes online from me at Quilt University.com. Click here to see when the classes will be held.
I hope you enjoy the quilts!

Janís quilt uses the small diamond to create this amazing design. We had fun twisting and turning the blocks.
No matter how we turned them, the design changed. The hardest part? Trying to pick the best design, they were all great!
Elinor Martin & Edith Shaver
Elinor used the small diamond to create a sweet little Christmas cube block. She is going to make a vest with one cube on the back and a cube on the front. The cube on the front will be split. Half the cube on one side of her vest and the other side of the cube on the other.
Edith used a large diamond to create this wonderful table runner. Itís going to look great in her dining room.
Geneal Bailey & Harlean Van Ness
Geneal created a wonderful design filled with many cubes, all using the small diamond. Harlean had fun playing with her cubes and made many samples. She is still deciding how to arrange them.

Norma Jeffers & Kay Quitko
Norma created an amazing design that changes the longer you look at it.
Kay created this wallhanging for her grandsonís room. The wallpaper border in Kayís hand was the inspiration for the colors in the cubes. I love the cube falling off the tower!
