Secrets of a Patchwork Pro

(Formerly Secrets of a Farmer’s Wife)

Secrets of a Patchwork Pro will reveal a multitude of tricks and & “cheats”; in 4 technique-based classes, using blocks from The Farmer’s Wife Sampler Quilt book. Learn all of Johanna’s best practical tips for working with small scale patchwork by machine, including “magic” cutting formulas, several methods for Half Square Triangles, speed piecing techniques and more.

The Farmer’s Wife Sampler Quilt is from the book by Laurie Aaron Hird. Students will need a copy of this book for the class. Copies of the book are available here.

Note: This is a technique class. Students can work through the blocks at their own pace. The goal is not to make all the blocks during the class, but to learn how to work smarter and more efficiently when making the blocks on your own.


This quilting class is two 6-hour sessions with a half hour lunch break


Instructor : Johanna Masko

Prerequisite : This class is recommended for someone who has some experience with patchwork.
