This class is designed to teach construction techniques for quilt as you go blocks which are quilted individually prior to assembling a whole quilt. This reduces the areas to be quilted into smaller, manageable units which can be later joined together to make a quilt or wall hanging. You will be required to prepare some suitable blocks prior to class. Instructions will be included in the list of other requirements for the class.
