This is a half day class of instruction with Kathy Metelica Cray on the traditional diagonal piecing technique. We will be focusing on attention to cutting and pinning to make everything match up beautifully. 

Picture it in your favorite fabrics or theme. It would be so nice in anything you choose, whether it be a holiday theme, traditional, modern, batik, big or small prints...anything goes! 

In class we'll make a 39" x 39" quilt. It is adaptable to make other fun sizes.

            21" x 21"                              15" x 15"!                                 

Come in on Sunday, April 7th between 10am and 2pm and we'll help you pick out your fabrics! Just email me to let me know you'd like to come, as the shop is closed to the public that day. It will be your special day!
