We’ll start with a simple nine-square pillow, and then advance to more complex quilting patterns, like optical sawtooth and electric fan. Students may also choose to sew together clothing or other cool projects using their newly discovered quilt design skills. All materials provided. This class is only open to children with experience in sewing.
