This is a two day class, a week apart for 2 hours each time. (Four Hours of Instruction) You will learn the basics in the first class. A little practice homework during the week and the last class we will take the basics we have practiced and turn them into quilt patterns.

Curvalicious Table Runner
- Dec 07, 2019 10:30 am

The Curvalicious Table Runner uses a stripped pieced background and fusible backed fabric curves to create a fun table runner without having to piece any curves. In the first session of this two part class we will strip piece the background, add applique fusible backing to the curved pieces, cut them out, and press them in place. In the second part of the class the following week we will sandwich together our top, batting and backing then quilt our table runner with all those fun decorative stitches we have on our machines. All that will be left to do is bind the quilt and you will have a fun table runner. Its so easy we know you will be making them for friends & family or even as great holiday hostess gifts too.
