When award-winning quilter and designer Sarah Bond first posted photos of her Tiger Moon and Tiger Melon quilt blocks to social media, she encouraged people to describe what they looked like. There’s something animal about them, and there’s something vegetable about them. Are they coffee beans? Dinosaur eggs? Footballs? To Sarah, they looked like tiger-striped melons, so the name stuck. In this class, Sarah shows you how to paper piece two classic quilt block shapes – a melon and a round moon – each with tapered stripes that allow you to experiment with colors and fabric, dark and light, sun and shadow. You’ll get all of Sarah’s tips for paper piecing and sewing curves, and these quilt blocks are a great use for fat quarters, yardage, or large scraps.
