    In addition learn needle-turn appliqué and paper piecing. Students can bring blocks UP TO 12.5 inches OR make blocks on the weekend.

    Beginners who know how to use their sewing machines will be able to learn piecing techniques as well as get tips and tricks on rotary cutting. Quilt is not really suitable for non-sewers.
