SKW Chic Picnic



Join Deb to explore how fun and easy the Sew Kind of Wonderful (SKW) Quick Curve Ruler can make sewing curves! This class is appropriate for confident beginners. Make curved pieces with no pins, no matching centers - just cut, sew and square up! We will work on a single block that can be used either as a pillow cover or as the first block of the full sized quilt (15.5" x 15.5") in the class and materials listed are those needed to complete only this piece - see the pattern for a full list of the materials needed to complete a throw sized quilt. There will probably not be time to quilt the pillow cover - Deb will cover how to construct the cover for quilting and final assembly. Once you take this class, you will have the skills you need to complete the throw (and you'll be hooked on using your QCR!).
