Shining Brightly

Description of Class

Shining Brightly class will include some new tips and tricks for creating a miniature quilt. It is constructed “strippy style”, a method that eliminates unnecessary seams, thus simplifying construction. We will cover how to most easily make quarter square triangles accurately. The original quilt is made with linen as the background fabric (which is what will be used in the kit as well). For that reason, we will also cover the ins and outs of using unusual fabrics in a quilt, including discussion on when to use fusibles to stabilize the background.
