Quilt as Desired

Instructor: Cheryl Schenck

February 9

Three of the most ambiguous words in a quilt pattern can be "quilt as desired." Even though you may feel confident in your machine quilting ability, how can you determine the best way to quilt a particular quilt? No need to bring your machine to this class, but bring a quilt top that you're not sure how to quilt. You will learn from each other's projects as well as come away with some ideas for your own quilt.
