This amazing pattern not only teaches you how to do quick curved piecing, but the finished project will become a family heirloom! This class will introduce you to the method of sewing no-pin curves. Two blocks of the 14-block pattern will be introduced at each class. The curved portion of the blocks will be cut and sewn in class, with some block finishing possibly done as homework. Some short cuts will be taught exclusively in this class! Bring your lunch if desired.
