Bring nature inside with this outdoor inspired quilt! Learn a technique to create curvy shapes and dynamic movement as you stitch this dramatic quilt in class. Almost all the cutting will already be done before you sit down to sew…. so you’ll make huge strides at the machine and on your design with this 38 x 28-inch wall hanging. Bring your own fabric; see supply list for details.
