Atomic Starburst



Atomic Starburst

In a 3-session class, you will make this gorgeous quilt by combining foundation paper piecing (FPP) and traditional piecing techniques. FPP will be taught within the class but it is expected that participants be familiar with cutting and sewing fabric on the bias. This is a great project for using up scraps as well curated fabrics of 10" precuts (please see pattern for more specifics). To be successful in this class it is strongly suggested that the participant has taken the Quilting 2 class. If you are not sure about your readiness for this class, please speak to Amy, Carrie or Diane before registering.
