In this class, we will learn a versatile free-hand cutting and sewing technique for quarter circles.

No templates and no pins! These blocks sew up quickly and can be combined in any of the Drunkard's Path arrangements. They also combine well with many other free-form cutting and sewing methods you may already know. We will go over many of the setting possibilities in class and work with color and pattern choices. Bring fabrics you'll enjoy working with. You'll have many "ingredients" for a new quilt by the end of the day.
