Sunday Challenge Class: February
TIME and DATES: PICK ONE

Sunday, Feb. 18, 12:30-3:30 p.m.

Cost: $30 plus tax (ruler not included)

Learn curved piecing using the Sew Kind of Wonderful Quick Curve Ruler in this class. Several of our class projects have used this ruler in the past, but this class exposes you to several different patterns by this company and how the ruler is used with each. This is a “lab” class that teaches you the technique of using the ruler, so there is no finished quilt project. However this ruler opens up a lot of doors to cutting and piecing curves, and you will be inspired to use it in a project of your own. We will practice cutting blocks with your scrap fabrics, and study in detail some of the company’s patterns. Purchase of the Quick Curve Ruler is necessary for this class. Various Sew Kind of Wonderful patterns will be available for purchase, but are not mandatory. See supply list.
