Lectures & Workshops
Confident beginner to Advanced
This is a fun workshop to create your own fun, simple quilt using a large scale print.
Using a large block design, we can utilize the wonderful large prints we are so attracted to.
For a special addition, we will create a very textural center Medallion motif using Texture Magic.
