Make a Baravelle spiral quilt that all your friends will say is simply amazing! Learn to draw, color and foundation-piece this special spiral quilt. You'll also learn how to select fabrics by color, value and pattern and pick up techniques for foundation piecing that make it easier than ever. Baravelle spirals look complicated, but they're actually easy to sew -- and best of all there are NO curved seams!  Bring your own fabric- see supply list for details.
