Blueberries and White Chocolate

All teachers have their favorite class and this is mine. One of the reasons is the quilt itself, I love it!
This class is fast paced because of the various techniques students learn. One of the most important techniques is learning to put lines on any size quilt that perfectly match each other. If you hate to see the words "see quilt for placement" in a pattern and no instructions this is the class for you. No longer will you struggle, it's a piece of cake! Some of the other techniques covered in class, small intricate paper piecing, beading, fusible applique and more.
Make this quilt in any color, not just blues. Full or Multi-Day Class. Posted by Picasa
