Sunset #19 is beautiful in its simplicity and is easily created with half-triangle-squares. These shapes are very versatile and the possibilities are endless. However, sewing them together is harder than it looks. Let Nelly show you several ways to make them and then how to sew them together to get perfect points and corners every time. Would you believe that it is possible to sew most of the quilt top in class? Incredible! Bring your own fabric; see supply list for details.
