Class Fee: $45.00
Instructor: Barb Thomas
Join us for a fun filled day making this handsome wall hanging. Barbara Thomas will guide you through the construction of this wall hanging. Make it in spring colors, or holiday colors; choose your own favorites. This class features fusible applique, bias tape making and straight piecing. Cutting instructions will be given to you when you sign up for class. A second class is scheduled to help you finish your project.
This 36" by 40 " wall hanging top will be put together by the end of the second class. We will be making the bias tapes and arranging the pattern from the template provided. We will make the "sandwich" (top, batting & backing) and stitch down the bias strips. You will finish the quilting, then square up and bind.
