Are we there yet? Not quite yet, but we can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Whether waiting for a return to "normal" or for the completion of a long range plan, creating this whimsical quilt top will bring more joy to the journey. You could even use your leftovers from mask making for some of the wonky geese. The quilt finishes at 43" square. Students will master curved piecing with minimal pinning with the help of the Mini Quick Curve Ruler.
Prerequisites: All students must be comfortable rotary cutting and using a sewing machine.
Be sure to purchase your fabric and other supplies from Silk Road Textiles, online or in store!
