Calico Swing Quilt Class

We will be using this Denyse Schmidt pattern to make a simple quilt using half-square triangles. 
In this single-all day class, we will complete the quilt top only. You can choose how to finish your quilt, either by quilting by check or taking one of our upcoming classes on hand or machine quilting.

This class requires basic knowledge of how to use your sewing machine. You must be able to sew a straight(ish) line and completely thread (including the bobbin) your machine on your own.
