Working with wedges is EASY and so fun! In this five week class, we will mix it up with blocks that are traditional, modern, creative, and/or unconventional to construct a quilt. You will make wheels, Dresdens, optical illusions, and more! You can make this as a complete quilt top to quilt as desired OR quilt each block individually before piecing the sections together. Either way you will end up with a masterpiece that only LOOKS difficult. This class is beginner friendly and fun for experienced quilters too. The cost breaks down to only $18 per class.
