Abacus Revival

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 wall hanging (18.5" x 22.5") 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. 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!). 

Class Level: Confident Beginner - students should be able to use rotary cutter and sew 1/4" seam
