This wall hanging quilt makes a great Christmas decoration. Curved piecing is used to shape the boughs. 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. Students should have some experience quilting.

Be sure to purchase your fabric and other supplies from Silk Road Textiles, online or in store!
