    Anita Grossman Solomon--Anyone?

    Has anyone done the Rotary Cutting Revolution technique by Anita Grossman Solomon? I not only signed up for a class (Anita's Arrowhead) but purchased her book. Very interesting way of creating a block.
    If you Google her name, you can see how she does her blocks

      This technique is one I would like to try. I will be in search of her books now. Very interesting reads and videos. I am so glad you shared this!

            PERSONALLY, I did one of her classes and she got on my nerves.

              I have not taken a class from her, but I've made several quilts from her book. The techniques work perfectly and are a refreshing change from the usual cutting and measuring. I've made 2 of the arrowhead pattern and was very pleased. Just be sure you read and follow her directions exactly--she has worked out the formulas exactly, so don't freelance!

                She was a speaker at the quilt guild I belonged to before I moved. Many of the members took her class and have done several of her quilts, including the arrowhead.

                  Thank you your your comments especially since that is the quilt the class will be doing.

                    I have her book, but haven't tried her methods. She requires that you starch your blocks, as I recall, and I am really averse to using starch. Someday, I'll break down and try it, and then I'll probably love starch, and I'll need to post and tell you all that I'm a convert, and you'll all have to tell me I was silly for waiting so long.

                      i have taken 3 of her classes at Festival and will be taking another this year - she is just a great person/quilter/teacher. i do like her technique -it is quick, clean and my blocks always come to be the correct size. I do have that book - .

                        I asked the lady who is teaching the class I am going to take about startching This what she said:
                        I did not startch my fabric but, startch if you want. Today I saw her finished quilt top and it was so pretty

                          I love Anita's methods and style. She is a great teacher and I have learned much from her over the years.

                            I took one of her craftsy classes and I like her methods and she seems to be a very nice person and a good teacher. Everything takes its time and I sometimes have the feeling things could go on a bit faster, but that seems to be the way how she likes to teach.. So I am listening and there are always tips and tricks to learn.
                            She loves to starch, I am using best press only and will try some of her blocks without using more starch than usual...
